“Real spiritual life is as sharp as a razor’s edge. The sankirtana movement is so spiritually pure that by remaining in its fire our consciousness will be refined to immaculate purity. This is the wonderful quality of the sankirtana movement. Through its association we gradually become free from all attachment to anarthas or unwanted things.
But beyond these attachments remain subtle shades of enviousness which also must be purged or they will carry the devotee away from devotional service.
These subtle shades of perverse mentality also spring from the enjoying mood. The desire for prominence, such as the impersonalist’s dream of becoming God, also manifests in the character of a devotee who is not completely purified. Hankering to obtain an “important” position in devotional service or to be the “best devotee” is materially tinged and is described in this song as ‘pratisthasa‘ (great importance).
These contaminated desires have no place in the glorious sankirtana movement of Caitanya Mahaprabhu.”
