Original Consciousness - an essential subject
Our original Kṛṣṇa consciousness becomes polluted and we gradually become almost completely forgetful of our relationship with the Supreme Lord. In this way a living entity's original Kṛṣṇa consciousness becomes covered or converted into material consciousness. Thus one engages in the business of sense gratification. It is recommended that we should always keep in touch with the devotional service of the Lord so that the blazing fire of devotional service can gradually burn into ashes our material desires so that our original consciousness can be fully awakened. This is also how we can keep our staunch faith in the lotus feet of the Supreme Personality of Godhead.
