Devotee, Los Angeles, April 19, 1973:
namo ’kincana vittaya nivrtta-guna-vrttaye atmaramaya santaya kaivalya-pataye namah
“My obeisances are unto You, who are the property of the materially impoverished. You have nothing to do with the actions and reaction of the material modes of nature. You are self-satisfied, and therefore You are the most gentle and are master of the monists.”
Prabhupada: So namah akincana-vittaya. Materially impoverished. This is the first qualification of a devotee. One who does not possess anything of this material world, he simply possess Krishna. That is akincana-vitta.
Akincana means one who has lost everything of material possession. Because if you have got a small tinge of idea that, “I want to become happy materially in this way”, so long you have to accept a body.
The nature is so kind that in whichever way you want to enjoy this material world, she will give you a suitable body under the direction of the Lord. Because Lord is situated everyone’s heart. So He knows everything, that you still want something material. He will give you. “Yes, you take it.”
Krishna wants that you get full experience that by material gain, you’ll never be happy. This is Krishna’s business. It’s full freedom. Although we have got minute quantity of freedom, because we are part and parcel of Krishna.
Krishna has got full freedom, but the freedom quality is there in me because I am part and parcel of Krishna. The chemical composition. The drop of sea water has got a drop of salt also. Although it is not comparable with the salt containing in the sea water.
But the salt chemical is there. This is our understanding. Janmady asya yatah [Bhag. 1.1.1]. Whatever we have got in minute quantity, the same thing, in fullness is there in Krishna. In fullness. Full Lecture
