If an ant kisses the lotus feet of Krsna

    Posted on June 29, 2017

Don't think that if one is engaged in the Deity worship and if one is engaged in the gardening work there is distinction. No. The one who is working as a gardener, he is as good as the one who is dressing the Deity, because it is absolute plane. There is no difference between... Just like in the material world, if one is working as manager and the other is working as menial servant there is difference of pay or difference of service. No. In the spiritual world there is no such thing. In the spiritual world even a small ant who is serving Krsna by chance... Suppose if there is an ant and the flower is thrown into the lotus feet of Krsna and the ant kisses the lotus feet of Krsna, he is as good as the pujari. This is spiritual world.

From Srila Prabhupada's lecture on Srimad-Bhagavatam 6.1.6-7 — June 8, 1975, Honolulu
