(Kadamba Kanana Swami, Sweden, 2010)

Transcribed by Madhumati Devi Dasi

Even a pure devotee in one sense is limited by this material world, but he is not affected. He accepts that:

‘This is what Krishna has given me’.

Everyone has limitations and one may have the desire to do more for Krishna, but the power may not be given…. and we will have to just accept it………………………….. So in this material world and even in the spiritual world, we accept the service and role that He gives us. We have to simply become so focused on Krishna’s desire and not our own as to; What we want to do for Krishna? But what is it that Krishna wants of me? What is my role?

Within time, that role becomes more and more clear. Just accept that role and make it something wonderful, which is what we have to do in this world! So in this way, the pure devotee is experiencing freedom, as he is something that Krishna wants him to be, and then one can serve Krishna in one’s capacity and just do that. That’s the ‘jivan-mukta’ – liberated.
