Love for devotional service needs to be there... the ones who have that love for devotional service, they can render all kinds of service. Such persons can offer service to repair Their kitchen, Their bedrooms, the temple too can be repaired. Samadhis too... all these things. Desire to render devotional service has to be there, and when the opportunity arises, they will get the service done.
