Service with and without love (Srila B.A. Paramadvaiti Maharaj)

This class given by Srila Gurumaharaj during the Christmas days in Berlin was baked in the computer-oven by Krishna Kirtan prabhu and has now landed on your browser. Its a hot cake, that means that you should eat it now!


"I don't want to relax, I don't want any vacation from this. I don't. I want to either chant, or read, or serve, or clean, or cook, or distribute. I want devotional service non-stop. Because I know that's the best for me, and I know that only this way I'll be with Krishna non-stop. It's like doing what you want to do. The greatest blessing in your life, is if you are allowed to do what you want to do. That is called pure spontaneous devotional service. When you do something which you want to do. It may not be pleasant, but you do it because you want to do it. [– – –] So much freedom is there."

I asked my father,
I said, "Father change my name."
The one I'm using now it's covered up
with fear and filth and cowardice and shame. 

Yes and lover, lover, lover, lover, lover, lover, lover come back to me,
yes and lover, lover, lover, lover, lover, lover, lover come back to me. 

He said, "I locked you in this body,
I meant it as a kind of trial.
You can use it for a weapon,
or to make some woman smile." 

Yes and lover, lover, lover, lover, lover, lover, lover come back to me,
yes and lover, lover, lover, lover, lover, lover, lover come back to me. 

"Then let me start again," I cried,
"please let me start again,
I want a face that's fair this time,
I want a spirit that is calm." 

Yes and lover, lover, lover, lover, lover, lover, lover come back to me,
yes and lover, lover, lover, lover, lover, lover, lover come back to me. 

"I never never turned aside," he said,
"I never walked away.
It was you who built the temple,
it was you who covered up my face." 

Yes and lover, lover, lover, lover, lover, lover, lover come back to me,
yes and lover, lover, lover, lover, lover, lover, lover come back to me. 

And may the spirit of this song,
may it rise up pure and free.
May it be a shield for you,
a shield against the enemy. 

Yes and lover, lover, lover, lover, lover, lover, lover come back to me,
yes and lover, lover, lover, lover, lover, lover, lover come back to me. 

Yes and lover, lover, lover, lover, lover, lover, lover come back to me,
yes and lover, lover, lover, lover, lover, lover, lover come back to me.
