Unmotivated devotional service

    Posted on October 10, 2015

Actually, devotional service rendered to the Supreme Lord not for my satisfaction, but rendering devotional service to the Lord, the self is automatically satisfied. If I make a motive that "I shall render service to the Lord so that I will be very much satisfied..." No. No. That becomes motivated. That "I will be satisfied," that is the first consideration. There should be no motive at all. I may be satisfied, not sati..., that is not my business, but still, I'll have to serve the Lord.

(Srila Prabhupada -- October 17, 1972, Vrndavana)
