Jayapataka Swami: In the nectar of devotion first there is vidhi marg – one follows the rules and regulations, that’s a bit mechanical. But then at the stage of vidhi marg, if one tries to improve one’s devotion and do the activities in a better way, that’s called raga-marg. Just like you can be asked to clean the floor and you clean it but you are thinking about many other things, now that’s rules and regulations. Then if you clean the floor with full attention, you think Krishna I hope I can please you by this seva and then that cleaning is considered as raganuga. So you can do any service, put your heart into it, put your mind into it, so then that way naturally you will advance, and you come up to the stage of spontaneous devotion. Hare Krishna.
