    Krishna is the objective of devotional service and anything not related to Krishna has got no value. The word, "prashaste karmani" (prescribed duties) is very important in the verse. This word indicates that there are many activities prescribed in the Vedas, which are purificatory processes.

    The particular words used here, "maa suchah", "Don't fear, don't hesitate, don't worry," are very significant. One may be preplexed as to how one can give up all kinds of religious forms and simply surrender unto Krishna, but such worry is useless.

We should strongly condemn and respectfully disagree if a person is not following regulative principles and making adjustment like a business.
