2230) Whether I know there are nine types of devotional service! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!

—————— Pradyumna: “Çrila Rüpa Gosvämi quotes another verse from the Third Canto of Çrimad-Bhägavatam, Thirty-third Chapter, 6th verse, in which Devahüti addresses her son, Kapiladeva, and says, ‘My dear Lord, there are nine different kinds of devotional service, beginning from hearing and chanting. Anyone who hears about Your pastimes, who chants about Your glories, who offers You obeisances, who thinks of You, and in this way executes any of the nine kinds of devotional service—even if he is born in a family of dog-eaters [the lowest grade of mankind]—becomes immediately qualified to perform sacrifices.’ “

Prabhupäda: Yes. Çvädo ‘pi sadyah savanäya kalpate. This is the verse. —-——

Hari Bol.
