991) Whether I know the difference between material and spiritual anxieties! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!

—————Devotee (1): What if one keeps falling down from following the regulative principles?

Prabhupäda: He’s falling down? If he’s falling down from regulative principles, that means he’s falling down to the material world. Falling down means falling down.

Devotee (2): [break] …down from the regulative principles and feels anxiety, then that anxiety is material anxiety.

Prabhupäda: Yes.

Devotee (2): It’s not spiritual.

Pusta Krsna: So anxiety for one’s self is mäyä?

Prabhupäda: Hmm?

Pusta Krsna: Anxiety for one’s self is mäyä?

Prabhupäda: That is material.

Pusta Krsna: And anxiety for Krsna?

Prabhupäda: That is spiritual. [break] …Rupa Gosvämi’s sloka, krsna-bhakti-rasa-bhävitä matih kriyatäm yadi kuto ‘pi labhyate [Cc. Madhya 8.70]: “The anxiety for Krsna, if it can be purchased, immediately purchase it.” Rüpa Gosvämi said. Krsna-bhakti-rasa-bhävitä matih kriyatäm: Just purchase Krsna anxiety if it is available somewhere.” So the next question will be that “What is the price?” Tatra laulyam ekalam mülyam:That anxiety can be purchased by anxiety.” “So I’ll do it.” No. Na janma-koti-sukrtair labhyate:That anxiety is not available even by millions of births’ pious activities.” So this anxiety is not so easy. —————————————
