There is one type of level of devotional service where the devotee is so completely surrendered to Krsna that he doesn’t even know what his body is doing. His body is taken over by Kṛṣṇa; h is completely absorbed in his relationship with Kṛṣṇa. There are some acaryas like that. Although they are physically visible in this world, their consciousness is totally in the spiritual world. And the material body is just being directed by Krsna, it is just like you walk without thinking , they are walking and doing things is being handled by Krsna. But everything they are doing is completely on the spiritual platform. So they are not at all preoccupied with their body. That state we cannot imitate, but there is such a state.
