“One of the eligibility of a candidate in bhakti is that one is neither too much attached nor too much detached. One who is too much attached is the materialist and too much detached is the impersonalist. Give it up! Why? Because it is a source of misery so give it up. But bhakti isn’t too much in either direction. There is a willingness to accept what is necessary for service to Krsna, and the operative principle is service to Krsna. So accept what is needed for service to Krsna and not other things…It is fertile ground for the seed of bhakti to grow.”
