Jayapataka Swami:  Well, you can do the service to please guru and Krsna. And what is the use of material name and fame? We want to please Krsna. Srila Bhaktisiddanta Saraswati Prabhupad Thakur, he said that the desire for pratista is like the stool of a pig! Pig eats stool, so it’s stool is super stool, stool of stool. By doing for the pleasure of guru and Krsna, automatically you get some pratista, but if you do it for name and fame ultimately you don’t get anything.  Even that name and fame is like pig’s stool according to our previous acarya so we should try to do the things to please guru and Krsna. Hare Krsna!
