Question:

I have a small doubt can you just elucidate me what is the meaning of pure heart. What is inner soul and from where do we get real happiness?

Answer by HH Bhakti Vikāsa Swami:

The meaning of a pure heart is one which is not covered by contamination. The nature of the soul is pure, but we come in contact with material energy due to our wrong desire to enjoy separately from Kṛṣṇa. Therefore we become… Yeah, that desire, that original desire (kāma), from that comes kāma, krodha, lobha, moha, mada, mātsarya – lust, anger, greed, pride, illusion, envy. These are various coverings on the soul. When these are removed, the soul is stated to be in a pure state, although by nature the soul is pure. So, when you say the inner soul, that means the soul not covered by these contaminations. Where do we get real happiness? Real happiness is Kṛṣṇa. So, in the pure state we can appreciate Kṛṣṇa. Real happiness is in Kṛṣṇa consciousness.

Question:

The goal of a Gaudiya Vaishnava is "Prema Bhakti", but out of the 5 types of mukti, for sayujya-mukti—we  use the pramana “aruhya krccrena param padam tatha, patanty adho anadrta yusmad anghrayah” (Srimad Bhagavatam 10.2.32) to provide evidence that sayuja-mukti is not a permanent type of mukti. If this is the case, why is it considered one of the types of mukti? My understanding of “mukti” here is based on the definition from Bhagavat 2.10.6 – muktir hitva anyatha rupam svarupena vyavasthitih.
