———- Devotional service is not dependent on subhasubha-karma. It is simply dependent on the mercy of Krsna and His devotees. Krsna de… Sadhu.

Guru-krsna-krpaya paya bhakti-lata-bija [Cc. Madhya 19.151]. Guru-krsna-krpaya.

Naisam matis tavad urukramanghrim [SB 7.5.32], mahiyasam pada-rajo-‘bhisekam niskincananam na vrnita ya…

Unless we surrender to the lotus feet of a pure devotee, it is not possible to come to the platform of devotional service. That is the way.  ————————

———— Vedesu durlabham adurlabham atma-bhaktau [Bs. 5.33]. These Gosvamis, they were personal devotees of Lord Krsna. They are eternal associates of the Lord. Therefore if we follow their principle, our success is guaranteed. But if we take to the Vedic ritualistic ceremonies without any reference to the path chalked out by the Gosvamis, it will not be possible to be successful.—-——

—— We should not take devotional service, or chanting of Hare Krsna mantra, equal to some Vedic pious activities, ritualistic ceremonies. It is offense. We should simply follow the path… That is also Vedic. But because we cannot select… Vedesu adurlabha. If we study Vedas independently, without going through the lines chalked out by the six Gosvamis, then we’ll be misled.   —————–

—————- Just like our sampradaya, Gaudiya Vaisnava sampradaya, they are following… Rupanuga.
sri-rupa sanatana bhatta-raghunatha
sri-jiva gopala-bhatta dasa-raghunatha
Ei chaya gosai yara tara mui dasa. We have to follow the principles of these six Gosvamis. That will make us happy. Otherwise, if we adopt the ritualistic ceremonies, subha-karma… Sama-subha-kriya matir pramadah. If we take devotional service as one of the pious activities, subha-kriya, that is offense.  —–————

——— Therefore Narottama dasa Thakura sings,
karma-kanda jnana-kanda sakali visera bhanda
amrta baliya yeba khaya  nana yoni brahman kare, kadarya bhaksana kare tara janma adho pate yaya
So jnana-karmady-anavrtam: [Cc. Madhya 19.167] “Devotional service should not be contaminated by jnana-kanda, karma-kanda, by fruitive activities or mental speculation.” Devotional service should be taken exactly in the line of the great authorities. ——————-

——– But all such endeavors can hardly offer anyone devotional service to the Lord, not even if one tries for it by such processes for many, many thousands of births.’ “
Prabhupada: You cannot achieve the platform of devotional service by karma-kanda and jnana-kanda processes.  —–

——- The rarity of devotional service is also confirmed in the tantra-sastra, where Lord Siva says to Sati, ‘My dear Sati, if one is a very fine philosopher, analyzing the different processes of knowledge, he can achieve liberation from the material entanglement. By performance of the ritualistic sacrifices recommended in the Vedas, one can be elevated to the platform of pious activities and thereby enjoy the material comforts of life to the fullest extent.  —-————
