Svarūpa Dāmodara: That type of philosophy will not last long. (long pause) Śrīla Prabhupāda, in the highly developed consciousness that, in the body, which is highly, consciousness which is highly developed...
Prabhupāda: That is Kṛṣṇa consciousness, devotee.
Svarūpa Dāmodara: So in the...
Prabhupāda: Highly developed consciousness means he's a devotee.
Svarūpa Dāmodara: Yes, but what is the relationship of those individuals who are living with him, though they are not conscious.
Prabhupāda: They will live. Just like a dog live with you. But you are developed; he's not developed.
Svarūpa Dāmodara: But still, he's benefited.
Svarūpa Dāmodara: He's benefited from the consciousness of the master.
Prabhupāda: Yes. So... If the master is devotee, then he's benefited. Kīṭa janma hau yathā tuwā dāsa. Bhaktivinoda Ṭhākura sings that "Let me become a worm in the house of a devotee. If I have to take birth, I don't want a life, nondevotional life, even it is like Brahmā. I'll prefer to become a worm in the house of a devotee." This is the prayer of Bhaktivinoda Ṭhākura. Harer nāma harer nāma... (CC Adi 17.21).
Svarūpa Dāmodara: Similarly, when we associate with a spiritual master who has Kṛṣṇa consciousness, automatically we also have some taste.
Svarūpa Dāmodara: Students.
Prabhupāda: Bhakti means enhancing spiritual taste. That is bhakti. Bhaktiḥ pareśānubhavo viraktir anyatra syāt (SB 11.2.42). And as he increases his spiritual taste, he becomes (sic:) detestful to this material enjoyment. This is the taste.
