This is the divinity of the Personality of Godhead: He is not affected by the qualities of material nature, even though he is in contact with them. Similarly, the devotees who have taken shelter of the Lord do not become influenced by the material qualities.
A devotee should always aspire to live in the association of advanced devotees and engage in the service of the Lord through the parampara system.
Just as those who are greedy see everything as a source of money-making and those who are lusty see everything as conducive to sex, the most perfect devotee sees Narayana [Krishna] everywhere.
If all types of worship, worship of Lord Krishna is best and better than the worship of Lord Krishna is the worship of His devotee, the Vaisnava.
Sri Krishna, the Personality of Godhead, who is the Paramatma [Supersoul] in everyone's heart and the benefactor of the truthful devotee, cleanses desire for material enjoyment from the heart of the devotee who has developed the urge to hear His messages, which are in themselves virtuous when properly heard and chanted.
The devotee should be more tolerant than the tree and more submissive than the grass. He should offer all honour to others, but may not accept any honour for himself.
