How do activities based on the principles of varnasrama become favorable for devotional service?

posted in: English 0


A devotee who desires to properly pass his life still accepts the duties prescribed by vamasrama-dhanna, because those duties are favorable to devotional service and counted as part of his practice. Such activities are no longer called karma. Rather, through these activities the svanistha devotees, devotees addicted to their own line of devotion, bring karma and its results into the realm of devotional service. The parinisthita devotees, devotees fully addicted to devotional service, perform pious activities that are not contrary to devotional principles simply to attract others to devotional service.

The devotees who are nirapeksa, neutral, accept activities favorable for devotional service without caring for popular approval.
