One has to serve Kṛṣṇa according to these regulative principles, but if one develops spontaneous love for Kṛṣṇa as exhibited in the activities of those who live in Vrajabhūmi, one attains the platform of rāgānuga-bhakti. One who has developed this spontaneous love is eligible for elevation to the platform enjoyed by the inhabitants of Vrajabhūmi. In Vrajabhūmi, there are no regulative principles set forth for Kṛṣṇa's service. Rather, everything is carried out in spontaneous, natural love for Kṛṣṇa. There is no question of following the principles of the Vedic system. Such principles are followed within this material world, and as long as one is on the material platform, he has to execute them. However, spontaneous love of Kṛṣṇa is transcendental. It may seem that the regulative principles are being violated, but the devotee is on the transcendental platform. Such service is called guṇātīta, or nirguṇa, for it is not contaminated by the three modes of material nature. #/div# #/div# please wait#div class="mw-parser-output"# #h4##span class="mw-headline" id="TEXT_221"#TEXT 221#/span##/h4# #div class="verse"# #dl##dd#rāgānuga-mārge tāṅre bhaje yei jana#/dd# #dd#sei-jana pāya vraje vrajendra-nandana#/dd##/dl# #/div# #h4##span class="mw-headline" id="SYNONYMS"#SYNONYMS#/span##/h4# #div class="synonyms"# #i#rāga-anuga#/i#—of spontaneous attachment; #i#mārge#/i#—on the path; #i#tāṅre#/i#—Kṛṣṇa; #i#bhaje#/i#—worships; #i#yei#/i#—who; #i#jana#/i#—a person; #i#sei-jana#/i#—that person; #i#pāya#/i#—gets; #i#vraje#/i#—in Vṛndāvana; #i#vrajendra-nandana#/i#—the son of Mahārāja Nanda. #/div# #h4##span class="mw-headline" id="TRANSLATION"#TRANSLATION#/span##/h4# #div class="translation"# “If one worships the Lord on the path of spontaneous love and goes to Vṛndāvana, he receives the shelter of Vrajendra-nandana, the son of Nanda Mahārāja. #/div# #h4##span class="mw-headline" id="PURPORT"#PURPORT#/span##/h4# #div class="purport"# In all, there are sixty-four items listed for the rendering of service unto Kṛṣṇa, and these are the regulative principles enjoined in the #i#śāstras#/i# and given by the spiritual master.
