devotee troubling me... please help!
Hare krishna, i'm in the iskcon movement. Though i am not a full time devotee, i regularly visit the temple. i recently noticed that one full time devotee in the temple is very partial towards me and i also observed that he is not behaving and speaking properly to the other devotees also properly. for example he chastizes us unwantedly. I was doing some service one day. he came and saw it and mentioned that even a low class person can do the service better than me. it was hurting. He could have told it in a polite way that the work is not upto the standard but he did not do so. Some times he holds up my friends until late in the night in the name of a meeting. how will we be able to get up for mangal arthi if he does this? we are also not in a position to question him. This is not the first occasion. even my other devotee friends of my same group have the same problem with him. he is supposed to be my senior devotee. if we have any problems we are supposed to report it to him but i dont feel like discussing my problem with him. he never smiles naturally and it is always artificial and diplomatic when he does so. he does not even properly attend all the parts of the morning sadhana program properly. the real problem here is it is disturbing my mind very much and i am always scolding that devotee within my mind and as a result of which my consciousness is getting affected. what should i do now? please dont advise me to go and again patch up with him and talk to him about how he is behaving. that is impossible as i will get into more trouble. i want prabhupad's movement to flourish and all my other devotee friends in my group to be happy but he is certainly not helping. How can i remain unaffected and practice kc peacefully?
