When we realize the glory of Lord and we realize the eternal relationship as the servitor of the Lord then all the other temporary designations recede to the background. We become purified. This is very important because nowadays there’s lot of problem in the world due to these superficial designations, Upaadhi. Upaadhi means designations or body consciousness. Someone thinks they are white or black or someone thinks they are Jew or Catholic or protestant, someone thinks that they are Asian or American or European or Latin or whatever and this is already creating problems in the world.
