प्रिया: परमहंसानां त एव ह्यच्युतप्रिया: ॥ ३१ ॥
kiṁ vā bhāgavatā dharmā
na prāyeṇa nirūpitāḥ
priyāḥ paramahaṁsānāṁ
ta eva hy acyuta-priyāḥ


kim — or; bhāgavatāḥ dharmāḥ — devotional activities of the living beings; na — not; prāyeṇa — almost; nirūpitāḥ — directed; priyāḥ — dear; paramahaṁsānām — of the perfect beings; te eva — that also; hi — certainly; acyuta — the infallible; priyāḥ — attractive.

Unless one is fixed in the normal condition of service, neither the Lord nor the living being can become fully satisfied. This defect was felt by him when Nārada Muni, his spiritual master, reached him. It is described as follows.
