Real thing is that we should serve the Lord and by serving the Lord we get our desires satisfied. That is what’s actually purifying. This is… also Krishna has done the same thing. When He gives the devotees advice, guidance, He shows them how to act. Arjuna, He told how to act in the battlefield. He didn’t just give him the blessing. Like that, Lord Caitanya He told His followers how to preach the Sankirtana Movement.
If we don’t have any activity, if we just do our two prayers and say, “Hare Krishna. Give me. Here is my shopping list. You take it and give me these things.”, then how do we get spiritual purification. Prabhuapada repeatedly said that people want God to be their order supplier.
