Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati: unalloyed servants & deceitful

    Posted on December 9, 2014

CB Antya-khanda 7.36 commentary

The phrase ekanta-dasa, or unalloyed servants, refers to those who do not have and never will have separate interests. Many business-minded people with incomplete vision oppose the eternal master-servant relationship -- their service is hardly unalloyed. Their deceitful display of opportunistic service is a manifestation of cheating, not of pure devotional service. Living entities averse to the service of the Lord exhibit samples of eternal service for as long as it suits their desires. But the moment their sense gratification is disturbed, they immediately give up service and begin to harass and rebel against their master by posing themselves as masters.

The poet Allen Ginsberg praised Srila Prabhupada thus:
Krsna comes, feeling pain for us
The Lord's form
Why Krsna is called Paramesvara
All-knowing, all-powerful Krsna
Devotees who go away
Temporary relief work: a misleading deviation from our real duty
Srila Prabhupada came to give culture, including dress style
Akrura sees Krsna and Balarama
Read Brahma Samhita very carefully
Vedic religion means varnasrama-dharma
We cannot live under a tree as did Srila Rupa Gosvami
Following in the footsteps of Srila Rupa Gosvami
If sincere, a "bad" devotee is not bad
Purely chanting
