"'My dear Arjuna, you can declare on My behalf that a devotee will never be...' A pure devotee. Always remember -- a pure devotee. Devotee means a pure devotee. Contaminated devotee is different. Dvidha(?)-bhakta and suddha-bhakta. Those who are contaminated with material desires, with fruitive activities and mental speculation, they are contaminated devotees. They are not pure devotees. Pure devotees means anyabhilasita-sunyam. [Brs. 1.1.11]. No material desires, no action and fruitive activities, no mental speculation. So he is pure devotee. So that pure devotee in transcendental position is always protected by the Lord."

(Srila Prabhupada lecture, February 12, 1971)
