Radhanath Swami on The Essence of Scriptures

Every scripture in the world that God has given is filled with discussion of how to elevate ourselves to higher platforms of enjoyment. But, for a pure devotee, they are a disturbance. One should serve the devotees to please the devotees. One must render first class devotional service, without the desire for material acquisitions, elevation to higher planets, or even liberation. One must perform service only with a desire to please God, the spiritual master, the devotees, and to uplift the conditioned souls. The best among humans seek only the essence - abandon them all and surrender to God. The only recommended sacrificial act in this age is the chanting of the Holy Names of the Lord.
