Srila Prabhupada was speaking about the Krsna-Balarama Mandir. He explained:
“I want twenty five Gosvamis to stay here in this Krsna- Balarama Mandir! Twenty five men who are just like the six Gosvamis. I want them to stay here. When we are in that mood then we can serve Krishna! Unless we become absorbed in hearing and chanting just like the Gosvamis, then we will not be able to appreciate devotional service.”
Then we think that:
“ Our spiritual masters gave us all these responsibilities. We have to look after the deities and the temple… it’s too much! He’s just giving us too much headache!”
And one will experience that devotional service is becoming a burden:
“It’s too much! All this service is too much! All this chanting is too much. Getting up too early is just too much!”
So this will happen when we are not sufficiently absorbed in hearing and chanting, and that we will begin to experience devotional service as being mundane… although it is not!
