The consciousness that can free us from envy

by November 10, 2012

Since no one in this material world can tolerate another’s advancement, everyone in the material world is called matsara, envious. In the beginning of Shrimad-Bhagavatam it is therefore said that Shrimad-Bhagavatam is meant for those who are completely nirmatsara (nonenvious). In other words, one who is not free from the contamination of envy cannot advance in Krishna consciousness. In Krishna consciousness, however, if someone excels another person, the devotee who is excelled thinks how fortunate the other person is to be advancing in devotional service. Such nonenvy is typical of Vaikuntha.

Srimad Bhagavatam 4.19.2 purport
