I'm unfortunate, you are born of my womb. So, so you cannot." Then, "I must have." The boy was very insistent, kṣatriya boy. "Then Kṛṣṇa helps you, then you can. Otherwise how, you cannot." Then he went to search out Kṛṣṇa in the jungle, and he searched out. When he saw Kṛṣṇa he said, svāmin kṛtārtho 'smi varaṁ na yāce (CC Madhya 22.42), "No more I want it. No more I want it." This is the process.
So pure bhakti is without any desire, but even if you are filled up with desires, you go to Kṛṣṇa. Don't go to other demigods.
- akāmaḥ sarva-kāmo vā
- mokṣa kāma udāra dhīḥ
- tivreṇa bhakti-yogena
- yajeta paramam puruṣa

Even if you have desires, not that anyābhilāṣitā-śūnyam (Brs. 1.1.11), without any material desires . . . generally we go to temple, to God, for some . . . for fulfilling some material desires. So śāstra says even if you have got material desires, even if you are not śuddha bhakta . . . what to speak of śuddha bhakta, even if you are an enemy of Kṛṣṇa, some way or other go to Kṛṣṇa. Go to the fire and you'll get warm. That is our propaganda. The Gosvāmīs recommend, therefore, yena tena prakāreṇa manaḥ kṛṣṇe niveśayet: somehow or other you just try to become Kṛṣṇa conscious, then everything will be successful. That is our propaganda.
Therefore Caitanya Mahāprabhu says, sādhu śāstra kṛpāya. A sādhu means devotee. That I was going to explain. A sādhu, there are different kinds of sādhus, but only the devotee, he is sādhu. It is explained by Kṛṣṇa Himself: api cet sudurācāro bhajate mām ananya-bhāk, sādhur eva sa mantavyaḥ (BG 9.30). He is sādhu.
Even if you find some defects in him due to his former habits, but he is simply engaged in Kṛṣṇa's service, unflinching devotion, he is sādhu. He is sādhu, in spite of some defects. We must admit, even in fire there are some defects. Fire is so pure that anything impure you put into the fire, it becomes pure. Perhaps you know in our Hindu system if a one utensil becomes impure some time, you put it in the fire and it becomes pure.
