One must according to their sincerity and capacity must restrain our senses on those things, which are unfavourable for devotional service, and simultaneously we must fix our consciousness on Krishna by engaging in positive activities of devotional service. In all situations we can shelter of Krishna by chanting His name, by associating with His devotees, reading His books and hearing His message. By channelising our physical energy in something that is productive service. The ideal mind is devils workshop, when the mind is idle, it is very easily subjugated by Maya or the force of illusion. Therefore if we keep our mind busy with Krishna with sincerity with proper association then gradually we become purified. And if we are sincere as it is said god help those who help themselves, if we try according to our sincere best, Krishna will help us. But we need the association of devotees, we need the blessings of great souls and then we can overcome all obstacles.

Rupa Goswani explains in Krishna consciousness this type of detachment (to become indifferent; not attracted, not averse) we can use in for Krishna’s service that is the highest platform for self-realization. In India it is a tradition that sanyasis cannot leave if a sanyasi leaves India he is doomed to be drowned in the ocean of Western material enjoyment and all the propaganda around it. Srila Prabhupada experiencing the highest taste of Krishna consciousness; he was truly detached on the order of his Guru Maharaj, he left alone with no company, no servant,s no bramacharis, no Godbrothers; New York city the very heart of Maya’s fortress of illusion. He just started right in alone, he was not attracted, he was not averse, he was to the principle of self gratification, he was attracted to the principle of surrendering and devotion that we must have and by and by his compassion and mercy those people that were considered most untouchable became transformed into great Vaisnavas by the power of
Krishna coming through his devotional service.

Krsna is creator, maintainer and destroyer of everything. He is the Absolute Truth. He is the goal of life. We should take shelter of Him through devotional service. All kinds of knowledge, all kinds of austerities we may perform; the conclusion is that if we do not take shelter of Krsna, (then) it is all simply a waste of time. Just like a devotee; a devotee may work very hard to make money and with that money he decides that they are going to cook a wonderful feast and work for days to prepare the preparation but then he never offers it to Krsna, he does everything but does not bring it to the alter and never offers it, (then) it is a waste of time. Once you offer it to Krsna then everything else you have done, the process, is glorious; it is devotional service. Materialistic people, they are performing so many activities which are simply ugra karma, just foaming in the mouth, working so hard, waste of time. Sometimes devotees do the same activities but in the end they offer it to Krsna and therefore everything are auspicious from the beginning to the end because the conclusion is right. So the final conclusion of understanding everything about this material existence, God and the living entity is to take shelter of Krsna whole heartedly.

Illusion

There is one Supreme Eternal Being, Krsna, and there are innumerable living beings, the jivas. The jivas are always eternally dependent on the mercy of Krsna, it is our constitutional position. And knowledge means to always remember that and act with that understanding. And the source of all ignorance is to forget that principle and act according to that forgetfulness. So the liberated soul is the person who never forgets that I am the humble dependent servant of Krsna. And the conditioned soul forgets, thinks I am the doer, I am the controller, I am the enjoyer, by my strength, by my intelligence, by my wealth and influence, I will find the real solution to my sufferings – impossible ! This is illusion!!.
