These conditioned souls, they are now conditioned, or in one way they are cut off from the original, I mean to say, relationship—forgetfulness. So if we want . . . if this hand wants to remain in healthy state, it is the duty of the hand to fulfill the obligation of the hand's duty, and then it remains very healthy condition.
So our duty is to serve God. There is no other duty. That is Caitanya Mahāprabhu's preaching, that "You have no other duty, anything. That is all false, illusion. If you have selected any other duty than to serve Kṛṣṇa in Kṛṣṇa consciousness, then you are foolish—you are doing something wrong, which is not for your interest." This is the teaching of Lord Caitanya and the Bhāgavata also.
So if somebody may argue, "Oh, if I completely engage myself in service of Kṛṣṇa, then what to do? How I shall live in this material world? Who will take care of my maintenance?" That is our foolishness. If you serve an ordinary person here, you get your maintenance; you get your wages, the dollars. You are so foolish that you are going to serve Kṛṣṇa and He is not going to maintain you? Yoga-kṣemaṁ vahāmy aham (BG 9.22).
Kṛṣṇa says in the Bhagavad-gītā that, "I personally take charge of his maintenance." Why don't you believe it? Practically you can see it. That means faithlessness. There is no reason. Suppose I am serving some master, so-called master, and he is at once paying me wages—"Take your wages"—twenty-five dollars, ten dollars or whatever it may be, at once paying. And I am going to serve the Supreme, and there is no maintenance for me? Oh, what a foolishness.
This is called forgetful. This is called spell of māyā. Māyā will dictate, "Oh, you are going to serve Kṛṣṇa? How you'll maintain yourself, you foolish? Don't go there. Don't go to the Kṛṣṇa consciousness Society. It is cheating." No, it is not cheating, it is actual fact. Yes. It is not cheating. But if you want to gratify your senses, oh, there is no scope. Then go to hell. Then go to hell. But if you want to serve Kṛṣṇa, there is every arrangement for you. There is every arrangement for you. If you want to cheat Kṛṣṇa, then Kṛṣṇa will also cheat you.
Dyūtaṁ chalayatām asmi (BG 10.36). Kṛṣṇa has said in His vibhūti-yogam that "Amongst all cheating process, I am gambling. I am gambling." There is cheating process. Wherefrom this cheating process comes? There is cheating process in Kṛṣṇa also, because He is the origin of everything. Whatever there is, even cheating process, thieving process, what is condemned in this world, that is also there in Kṛṣṇa, but that is without any contamination. That is difference. When He cheats, it becomes worshipable.
