“There are many transcendental activities a person can do. They can do their profession, whether it is an artist, musician, businessman, housewife, mother, or whether it’s producing children.
They can do any activity except slaughtering animals or certain forbidden activities or specifically that taking intoxication of a chemical type etc. which cannot be dovetailed in Krishna’s service.
But the normal kind of activities that we need to do to live in the material world that don’t harm our bodies or anyone else’s bodies can be performed in a way which is spiritual or transcendental so that our whole life, 24hrs a day can be in communion with the Absolute Truth and can be on the transcendental platform.
When someone becomes accomplished in the practice of devotional service, he enjoys this knowledge within himself in due course of time. It’s not just a theory that some people might believe and some might not believe. But when we apply the knowledge through practice of devotional service a person becomes accomplished.”HH Jayapataka Swami
