by hearing from them about Krishna consciousness we forget our miseries, that in this festival whenever I heard from the advanced Vaisnavas I could forget my miseries, but that they somehow or another blessed me and all the other devotees so that we can be engaged the whole year in pure Krishna consciousness so intently and so enthusiastically that we may maintain that concentration without any deviation, without a chance for maya.
Like that the same position may be there but they change in their attitude from sense gratification to devotional service.
