Humility only for the truth- not for rascals! by Prabhupad Saraswati Thakur

Sometimes, there is a misunderstanding that humility means sentimental submissiveness, where one takes a weak position and accepts anything and everything, even if it is against Hari, Guru, Vaisnava and bhakti.

Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakur Prabhupada has established: "The mahājanas (the great spiritual authorities) have advised that one’s humility should not be made evident in front of anyone and everyone. To express one’s humility in front of an atheist who is envious of śrī guru and the Vaiṣṇavas, in front of a demoniac person like Rāvaṇa or in front of a pretentious brāhmaṇa, is not vaiṣṇava-sevā, nor is it tṛṇād api sunīcatā. If a person does so, he can never attain the ability to perform kīrtana, nor can he develop taste for chanting the holy names. In fact, such a misplaced display of humility is an act of violence toward other living entities.".... "Humility implies perfect submission to the truth and no sympathy for untruth. A person who entertains any partiality for untruth is unfit to chant the kirtana of Hari."
