A devotee feels the happiness of others as well as their distress. They are to be selfless and compassionate. A devotee is sad that he is not serving better and sad due to the distress of another. In this way, devotees do not envy because they feel happiness when others are happy. There is no question of envy. Since they lack this ego, they do not think, “I deserve this benediction. I should have this material position. I am much better than that person.” This mindset of self-centeredness will draw envy.
