Jayapatākā Swami: We should not be attracted by temporary things. Temporary things only last for short time, so we should not be distracted by them. If we are attracted by some temporary things, we should think how to do that in the service of Kṛṣṇa. In this way, we can naturally develop our love for Kṛṣṇa. So, developing love for Kṛṣṇa is a gradual process. And step by step we develop our love for Kṛṣṇa. Just like if we want to have a child, we pray to have a Kṛṣṇa conscious child. We do everything in such a way that Kṛṣṇa will be pleased. And naturally like we were reading how the king and his queen were praying to Kṛṣṇa and then they got a Kṛṣṇa conscious child, they actually got an Avatāra, Ṛṣabhadeva as their child who was the Supreme Personality of Godhead.
