A talk given by Hari Pārṣada Dāsa on 22-September-2016 at ISKCON Juhu.
Topic: Rising above mediocrity on the path of bhakti — a talk on Śrīmad-bhāgavatam (7.11.32):
hitvā sva-bhāva-jaṁ karma
śanair nirguṇatām iyāt
Translation: If one acts in his profession according to his position in the modes of nature and gradually gives up these activities, he attains the niṣkāma stage.
Purport: If one gradually gives up his hereditary customs and duties and tries to serve the Supreme Personality of Godhead in his natural position, he is gradually able to become free from these activities, and he attains the stage of niṣkāma, freedom from material desires.
