(Kadamba Kanana Swami, August 2011, New Vraja Mandala, Spain)

….This is the mood of the conditioned soul, ‘I’ll never be a servant! Better a king in hell than a servant! But actually we know that Krsna Himself becomes a servant because this kind of service has nothing to do with the slavery of the material world. This kind of service is not forced by whips, ‘….and you shall bow and you shall now crawl and you shall do as I say (whipping noise).’ It is simply service that comes out of love. It is the mood of wanting to do something for someone else because this person is very dear to us. In this way the devotees want to serve Krsna and in the same way Krsna wants to serve His devotees. It is that relationship that is the essence of all existence…
