Devotion without any material tinge

this is our special opportunity that Prabhupad has given us Krishna consciousness in its pure form.

He didn’t compromise to give a little jnana-misra bhakti, devotion with knowledge, devotion with speculative knowledge and devotion with karma, devotion with any material tinge; he gave it pure, simply engage in the sankirtan movement of Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu. That purity… it is the duty of the GBC to protect the devotee, to protect his life, to see what is it that we weed to change, because if we don’t have that focus on pure devotion, if your focusing on some kind of peace, focusing on some kind of material comfort, and there are some conditions which is our focus, then what happens is that we won’t be able to taste that pure nectar and our mind will be disturbed. It will be disturbed; it will be agitated by that very desire for peace. It will be agitated by the very desire for comfort. But by absorbing ourselves, as it’s given here, by hearing about Krishna, in engaging in devotional service to Krishna we automatically become peaceful, we automatically are comfortable, no matter what condition we are in. That is the real happiness that every one of us is yearning for, every one of us is crying for. So that is the mercy of Advaita Gosai that He called Lord Caitanya down. And that is the mercy of Srila Prabhupad that he carried Lord Caitanya to us all over the world. He even carried it back to India in its pure form.
