Ecstasy of The Sankirtana Movement

Unless one is a completely pure devotee, one cannot enjoy the transcendental bliss derived from chanting and dancing in the ecstasy of the sankirtana movement. Such ecstasy is not possible for an ordinary devotee.

The Way A Preacher And A Devotee Act

A preacher has to act in a way that other people don't misunderstand. A pure devotee acts only for the pleasure of Krishna without caring for what others think.

Pure Devotees

A pure devotee is he who loves Krishna, without any material desire. Such pure devotees are very rare. Even if they have got some ulterior desire, that will be removed very soon, because they have taken to the pure process of Krishna Consciousness.

Significance of The Mercy of A Pure Devotee

In the preliminary phase of spiritual life there are different kinds of austerities, penances and similar processes for attaining self-realization. However, even if an executor of these processes is without any material desire, he still cannot achieve devotional service and aspiring by oneself alone to achieve devotional service is also not very hopeful, because Krishna does not agree to award devotional service to merely anyone. Krishna can easily offer a person material happiness or even liberation, but He does not agree very easily to award a person engagement in His devotional service. Devotional service can in fact be attained only through the mercy of a pure devotee.
