Jayapatākā Swami: You see there is the verse hṛṣīkeṇa hṛṣīkeśa-sevanaṁ bhaktir ucyate – we should engage our senses in the service of the master of the senses, Kṛṣṇa. The demoniac nature is when we think that we should become the servant of our senses. So we start to think we are the body, serving the senses is the goal of our lives. So we would rather make our very firm decision to serve the lotus feet of Lord Kṛṣṇa. That is why it is important to chant Hare Kṛṣṇa. It purifies our consciousness and we become fixed in our desire to serve Kṛṣṇa. 03-April-2021 Śrīdhāma Māyāpur, India
