Jayapatākā Swami: Pray to Śrīla Prabhupāda, pray to your guru and do your sevā correctly. Passion means lust, to do it to get some material benefit. Ignorance means crazy, lazy. Anger – I will show you that I am the best devotee! I will kill you by my bhakti! And some crazy thing! So avoid passion and ignorance, and what is left is goodness. So we do devotional service – hṛṣīkeṇa hṛṣīkeśa-sevanaṁ bhaktir ucyate – to please the senses of Kṛṣṇa, not for ourselves.
