2363) Whether I know being in material consciousness, I, soul never get mixed up with it! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!
——————— It is said by Sukadeva Gosvami in the Fifth Canto of Srimad-Bhagavatam, Eighteenth Chapter, 12th verse, ‘My dear King, persons who have unflinching faith in Krsna and are without any duplicity can develop all the good qualities of the demigods.‘ “

Prabhupada: Yes. A devotee can develop all the good qualities of the demigods — immediately. Because ceto-darpana-marjanam [Cc. Antya 20.12]. As soon as the heart is cleansed… Because the soul, as he is, he’s pure. Asango hy ayam purusah. The spirit soul is not contaminated or does not associate with the material modes of nature. It is simply an illusion, misidentification. Just like water and oil does not mix, but it appears that oil is fallen in the water, similarly, although we are in this material world, in the material consciousness, our identity is not actually in material consciousness. It is simply… Just like dreaming.  ————————
