940) Whether I know my bhakti should be pure without material desires! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!

—————– Just like Caitanya Mahaprabhu says,

na dhanam na janam na sundarim kavitam va jagadisa kamaye
mama janmani janmanisvare bhavatad bhaktir ahaituki (tvayi)

[Cc. Antya 20.29, Siksastaka 4]

So devotional service, this line of activities should not be taken for some material gain. This is not bhakti. Bhakti must be pure, cent percent pure, free from all material desires, free from the resultant action of jnana and karma. Anyabhilasita-sunyam jnana-karmady-anavrtam [Brs. 1.1.11]. In other words, if you are actually a devotee, you’ll have no more interest with these material desires. Material desires means dharma artha kama moksa [SB 4.8.41, Cc. Adi 1.90]. They’re all material desires. ———————-
