“The Complete Science of Bhakti-Yoga #8”

The Nectar of Devotion Vrndavana, November 3, 1972

2149) Whether I know who a Bhagavad-bhakta is! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!
————————– “Pure devotional service is rarely achieved.” That is the criterion. Pure devotional has got so many advantages, but it is very difficult. It is very difficult. Na janma-koti-sukrtibhih na labhyate. Pure devotional service, even after endeavoring, endeavoring for millions and millions of births, it is very difficult to achieve. Pure devotional service can be achieved only through the mercy of a pure devotee. Otherwise, it is not possible.

mahiyasam pada-rajo ‘bhisekam
niskincananam na vrnita yavat
naisam matis tavad urukramanghrim
sprsata, sprsata…    [SB 7.5.32]

What is that? The purpose is that unless one takes the dust of the lotus feet of a pure devotee, it is not possible to become a pure devotee. Mahiyasam pada-rajah, mahiyasam, great personality, great devotee. Pada-rajah means the dust of the lotus feet; abhisekam, taking to the, on the head. Mahiyasam pada-rajo ‘bhisekam niskincananam. Mahiyasam, great personality means niskincana. Bhagavad-bhakta is niskincana. He has no more material obligation. That is Bhagavad-bhakta. ———————————————–
