krsna kahe,--'ama bhaje, mage visaya-sukha
amrta chadi' visa mage,--ei bada murkha
krsna kaheKrsna says; ama bhaje—he worships Me; mage—but requests; visaya-sukha—material happiness; amrta chadi'-giving up the nectar; visa mage—he begs for poison; ei bada murkha—he is a great fool.
"Krsna says, 'If one engages in My transcendental loving service but at the same time wants the opulence of material enjoyment, he is very, very foolish. Indeed, he is just like a person who gives up ambrosia to drink poison.
