Bharata Maharaja was able to bring Krishna meditation to a great deal into his heart so that he was able to actually immerse there. But we have to never stop immersing ourselves in Krishna. At any point if we think that “Now I am quite advanced and I am old devotee, now I know everything, now I, you know, I have done enough, something like that, now I can. I can watch television Prabhu I won’t be put in maya by that.” Or I can do this, sometimes we find that devotees, just like Bharata Maharaja I can have a pet deer and he didn’t plan it that way. What to speak of someone if they plan it that they have some kind of material, unless it is directly connected with devotional service.
