TEXT 25
tate krsna bhaje, kare gurura sevana
maya-jala chute, paya krsnera carana
SYNONYMS
tate—therefore; krsna bhaje—if one worships Lord Krsna; kare—performs; gurura sevana—service to his spiritual master; maya-jala chute—gets free from the binding net of maya; paya—gets; krsnera carana—shelter at the lotus feet of Krsna.
TRANSLATION
"If the conditioned soul engages in the service of the Lord and simultaneously carries out the orders of his spiritual master and serves him, he can get out of the clutches of maya and become eligible for shelter at Krsna's lotus feet.
PURPORT
It is a fact that every living entity is eternally a servant of Krsna. This is forgotten due to the influence of maya, which induces one to believe in material happiness. Being illusioned by maya, one thinks that material happiness is the only desirable object. This material consciousness is like a chain around the neck of the conditioned soul. As long as he is bound to that conception, he cannot get out of maya's clutches. However, if by Krsna's mercy he gets in touch with a bona fide spiritual master, abides by his order and serves him, engaging other conditioned souls in the Lord's service, he then attains liberation and Lord Sri Krsna's shelter.
