Occupational Duties - an essential subject
The real occupational duty of the living entity is to serve the Supreme Personality of Godhead. Even if one prefers to deviate from this principle he remains a servant because that is his eternal position; but one serves māyā, the illusory, material energy. The Kṛṣṇa consciousness movement, therefore, is an attempt to guide human society to serving the Personality of Godhead instead of serving the material world with no real profit.
Our actual experience is that every man, animal, bird and beast—indeed, every living entity—is engaged in rendering service.
