2145) Whether I know the difference between material and spiritual pleasures! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!
————————- So pure devotional service is the beginning of all auspiciousness. All-auspiciousness means go back to home, back to Godhead. So if we stick to pure devotional service, follow the rules and regulations, chant sixteen rounds, be engaged always in the service of the Lord, then ultimate gain is that tyaktva deham punar naiti mam eti kaunteya. (reads:) “Pure devotional service automatically puts one in transcendental pleasure.” Transcendental pleasure and material pleasure, there is difference. Material pleasure means sense gratification, and transcendental pleasure means satisfaction of Krsna. A devotee is satisfied seeing Krsna is pleased. That is their satisfaction — through Krsna. Material pleasure means direct sense perception, and spiritual pleasure means by, through Krsna. —————————–
