Jayapatākā Swami: You see devotional service is a gradual process. You are not yet initiated. So you are saying that sometimes you feel enthusiastic, sometimes you feel distracted. These are anarthas. And one of the steps after you take initiation is called anartha-nivṛitti and that means to overcome all those distractions. So, some of the things we want to do in material life, so that may be possible if we do that for Kṛṣṇa and just like when we eat, we eat kṛṣṇa-prasāda. So when you want to get married, try to get married to a devotee and do devotional service. So, naturally there will be some material things but we want to do it in such a way that Kṛṣṇa is pleased. That is why we should continue reading and get mature in devotional service.
