—————— yesäm tv anta-gatam päpam janänäm punya-karmanäm

                   te dvandva-moha-nirmuktä bhajante mäm drdha-vratäh [Bg. 7.28]

The bhajana, devotional service, is possible when one is freed from these anarthas, unwanted things. Tato nisthä rucis tatah a[thä]saktis tato bhävah, sädhakänäm ayam premnah prädurbhäve bhavet kramah.

So these are the different steps of sraddhä. Actually, devotional service means increasing your faith more and more. And these are the steps. The first step is that you must associate with devotees and then take to bhajana-kriyä. Then see, examine yourself that whether you are free from all the anarthas, all the unwanted things. If all the unwanted things are vanquished, then you’ll have firm faith. Bhaktir bhavati naisthiki. Nityam bhägavata-sevayä, nasta-präyesu abhadresu… Nasta [SB 1.2.18]. Not that I am completely free from all sinful activities, but präyesu, say, fifty percent, sixty percent is gone. At that time, nasta-präyesu abhadresu… How it has come to take place? Nityam bhägavata-sevayä. Nityam… We have to daily. Not that Bhägavata-saptäha, and finish, and whole year you can do all nonsense. Not like that. Nityam bhägavata-sevayä. ———————
