If you send the typewriter to heaven, what does it mean? It is to be worked as typewriter. Does it mean because it has gone to heaven, the work has changed? No. The work will continue. Either in this hell or heaven, typewriter will kat, kat, kat, kat. That’s all. Similarly, our position is servant. If you don’t become servant of Krsna, then you serve, you become servant of your wife, your children, your relative, your country, your nation, your dog.
From Srila Prabhupada’s lecture on Bhagavad-gita 1.30 — 23 July, 1973
