Activities in Devotional Service - an essential subject

From Vanipedia
Jump to: navigation, search

A conditioned soul under the spell of material nature cannot understand that action performed for personal sense gratification is faulty -- the cause of bewilderment, unlimited anxieties, and misery. Diverting even a little of one's attention toward Krishna and activities in devotional service immediately enables one to achieve a life free from calamity and lamentation. Sincerely engaging in these activities with love is so potent that one becomes enlightened without a doubt. Each and every living creature has a forgotten personal relationship with God. That relationship is revealed through the process of devotional activities, Kṛishna consciousness. Considering this, the highest perfection of charity is to give people immunity from the failures and anxieties of material existence by giving them transcendental knowledge and engaging them in activities in devotional service. Such distribution of knowledge and service is incomparable.
