Not all piety is fortunate – strive for spiritual piety

by July 10, 2014

“Pious activities can be divided into three categories: pious activities that awaken one’s dormant Krishna consciousness, pious activities that bestow material opulence, and pious activities that enable the living entity to merge into the existence of the Supreme. These last two awards of pious activity are not actually fortunate. Pious activities are fortunate when they help one become Krishna conscious. The good fortune of Krishna consciousness is attainable only when one comes in contact with a devotee. By associating with a devotee willingly or unwillingly, one advances in devotional service, and thus one’s dormant Krishna consciousness is awakened”

Srila Prabhupada, Chaitanya Charitamrita, 2.22.45 purport
