Vanisource - the complete essence of Vedic knowledge

CC Madhya 22.41 (1975)

From Vanisource

His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada


kāma lāgi' kṛṣṇe bhaje, pāya kṛṣṇa-rase
kāma chāḍi' 'dāsa' haite haya abhilāṣe


kāma lāgi'—for fulfillment of one's material desires; kṛṣṇe bhaje—one engages in the transcendental service of Lord Kṛṣṇa; pāya—he gets; kṛṣṇa-rase—a taste of the lotus feet of Lord Kṛṣṇa; kāma chāḍi'-giving up all desires for material enjoyment; dāsa haite—to be an eternal servant of the Lord; haya—there is; abhilāṣe—aspiration.


"When someone engages in Lord Kṛṣṇa's devotional service for the satisfaction of the senses and instead acquires a taste to serve Kṛṣṇa, he gives up his material desires and willingly offers himself as an eternal servant of Kṛṣṇa.
