2173) Whether I know how to satisfy Krsna! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!

————————- Yasya prasädäd bhagavat-prasädah **. So Visvanätha Cakravarti Thäkura says you have to follow the direction of the spiritual master. He’s guiding as a leader. And if he’s pleased, that means Krsna is pleased. Yasya prasädäd bhagavat-prasädah **.

So devotional service is the only way. Karmi, karmi means they are working very hard for their personal benefit. Not for Krsna’s benefit. Similarly, jnänis, they are also trying for personal benefit, mukti. He wants mukti, liberation, nirbheda-brahmänu-sandhana. And similarly, yogis also, they want personal benefit, some material power, asta-siddhi-yoga, animä-laghimä-siddhi. Bhukti-mukti-siddhi-kämi sakali asänta. Caitanya-caritämrta Kaja says except pure devotee, who only wants to satisfy Krsna, everyone is working for his personal benefit, karmi, jnäni, yogi. But Krsna says, “Pure devotional service…” Not… Rüpa Gosvämi says, “Pure devotional service is the only means to attract Krsna.” Now… But ignorance is no excuse. ————————————————-
