1162) Whether I know what “kama and prema” are! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!
——————– Just like Arjuna. Arjuna is fighting and another soldier is fighting the other side. But Arjuna’s activities as soldier is devotional service. Because he’s trying to please Krsna. Other side, they’re fighting for their own interest, how to become victorious and take up the kingdom. That was their idea. Here, Arjuna, he did not like to fight, but when he understood that “Krsna desires this fighting,” he engaged in it. Therefore his fighting was to satisfy Krsna, not to satisfy his senses. As it is explained in the Caitanya-caritamrta, to satisfy one’s own senses, that is called kama, and to satisfy the senses of Krsna, that is called prema. That is the difference. Go on. ————-
