(HH Kadamba Kanana Swami, 10th June 2012, Bhaktivedanta Manor, London, UK) Lecture: Part 1 seminar – Higher taste

‘What can we do to get the higher taste?’

‘Just carry on.’

‘You mean just carry on?’

‘Yes, just carry on.’

‘But is there something that I can do?’

‘Just carry on.’

‘No, no but really anything special that I can do?’

‘Just carry on. It is very special devotional service because it really works. It’s all that is needed.’

‘Can I say a special prayer?’

‘Yeah, you can just chant Hare Krishna. It’s very special.’

‘Can I do some special service?’

‘Sure, what service are you doing?’

‘Any service really.’

That is the nature of devotional service. In the Nectar of Devotion, Rupa Gosvami speaks about. kṛṣṇa-anuśīlanam. Cultivation is required, then we get a lengthy description from chapter 6 to 14 about the cultivation of sadhana-bhakti, and in there the 64 limbs of devotional service is required and are described. You see things like:

‘Just by smelling the garlands that has been offered to the Lord the many sinful activities and the many sinful desires in the heart are being destroyed!’

No bad! Do you want to have a go?
