Actually preaching is highest platform because this is desired by the Lord. In in His instruction, there is no Loss or diminution. In fact King Priyavarta, he also followed the instruction of his superiors, would that have been better, would that have been pleasing. By following the Lord’s instructions, he pleased his superiors. He pleased Narada muni, he pleased everyone. And he was also indirectly preaching Krishna Consciousness, by managing a kingdom. So, of course the king also has to see that Krishna Consciousness is active throughout his area of domain.
