romapadaswami on proper service mood

Whenever there is some service, we should extend our senses, or else, we should withdraw the senses at will. This is how we can practically connect with the Master of the senses

    From this perspective, I am appreciating the importance of sense control right in the beginning of devotional service.

    This ties with Maharaj’s quote about unrestricted sense enjoyment. For self maintenance and for service to the Lord and His devotees, we extend our senses. Otherwise, we don’t go there. Very hard to put down effectively in practical life, especially when it comes to very subtle sense enjoyment (e.g. the news on the internet), but with practice and devotee’s mercy, one day we will get there.

    I agree. To be sincere enough to practice, even in the face of failures, would be required from our side while enthusiastically hoping & praying for mercy.
