Bill Clinton Gets a Bhagavad-gita

Syamasundara Prabhu wrote: “A devotee is one who simply by seeing them we are reminded of Krsna.”

I agree with Chandrashekara Acharya Prabhu that it is character that really makes the Vaisnava, not the dress.
Probably if devotees in general would have adopted more mature ways in their preaching skills, the Indian dresses would not be associated so much with a weird cult.
As a brahmacari I never wore anything except dhotis; I was a monk and I was clear about that - but I too often fought against the bad opinion created by cheating and lying booksellers before me.

Still, even when one tries to be an honest monk, people are not joining because they are not willing to adopt all the externals which they think is necessary after seeing an Indian dressed devotee.
And why should one dress Indian? There are thousands of convinced Christians who nevertheless see no need to dress like Israeli dessert people.

Probably the perspective is different from those living in ashrams and those who live/work/study/etc. in regular society.
