Pure devotion to the Lord or sudha bhakti is akarma. There’s no result for that on the material platform. If we want material results we can get it without asking we can get all our desires get satisfied. That isn’t any problem at all. If you have billions of dollars, you can get any car you want, any house you want this an automatic thing, but if you have no money then of course, you cannot get these things by the ordinary means. If you have bhakti which is higher than mukti, even the kumaras they were also muktatmas. But when they could see Narayana face to face and when they bowed down at His lotus feet, they were… and smelled the tulasi offered to His lotus feet, they became filled with ecstasies. Their hairs were standing on end. Their body was quivering. They were then able to understand that, “What we were realizing in the Brahman, in the Brahma jyoti darshan that this is nothing compared to the happiness that we are experiencing now just bowing down at the lotus feet of Lord Narayana.”
