2161) Whether I know a pure devotee has no more desires! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!
—————————- If one is actually sincere, after suffering the distress of impersonalism, gradually they’ll come to surrender to the person. Bahunam janmanam ante jnanavan mam prapadyate [Bg. 7.19]. So when one becomes devotee, jnanis, they give too much value to liberation, moksa, nirbheda-brahmanusandhana. But yogis, they give too much value for controlling the senses. Karmis, they give too much value to, to the acts of promotion to the heavenly planets. But for a devotee these things are very teeny. They don’t care for these things. Neither for the karmis, or for the jnanis, or for the yogis. They are… Yam labdhva caparam manyate nadhikam tatah. A bhakta who has come to Krsna consciousness, pure devotional service, he has no more any desire for the resultant action of karmis, jnanis, and yogis. He’s so fixed up. ———————–————–
