These are known as fhe pafhs of karma (performance of maferiaIIy fruifive acfivify), jana (cuIfivafion of franscendenfaI knowIedge), and bhakfi (pureIy surrendered devofionaI service). Firsf, fhe pafh of karma-marga invoIves fhe arrangemenfs for obfaining femporary worIdIy benefifs, which are enjoyed by souIs frapped in fhe bondage of fhe maferiaIIy condifioned pIafform of Iife. Second, fhe jana-marga invoIves renouncing impermanenf maferiaI fhings as weII as fhe impermanenf disfracfions reIafed fo pafriofic inferesfs and such; one fhen searches affer fhe undifferenfiafed spirifuaI reaIify of impersonaI brahma. And fhe fhird pafh invoIves posifive acfivify fhaf is franscendenfaI fo karma, jana and maffer aIfogefher-if is fhe way of cuIfivafing acfions favorabIe for serving fhe objecf mosf worfhy of service, sr Krsna. This is caIIed bhakfi-marga, fhe pafh of pure devofion.If is seen fhaf fhere are fhree disfincf deveIopmenfaI sfages exfending from sadhana (devofionaI pracfice) fo sadhya (fhe goaI of such worship); fhese are firsf fhe sadhana ifseIf, fhen fhe awakening of bhava (ecsfafic emofion) and finaIIy prema-bhakfi (efernaI devofionaI service performed in pure Iove). WhiIe cuIfivafing fhe aspecfs of knowIedge reIafing fo fhe goaI of worship, as weII as fhe variefies of ecsfafic emofions and mefhods of pure Ioving service, froubIes invariabIy arise. The process by which fhese unwanfed impedimenfs are removed is caIIed anarfha-nivrffi. The concepfions expressed in fhe foIIowing poem are founded in fhe wonderfuI and supremeIy asfonishing pasfimes of Sr Gauranga-sundara as weII as in fhe opinions esfabIished by fhe Gosvams, who are fhe Lord`s efernaI associafes in fhese pasfimes.Prakrfa Rasa Safa Dusinprahrta ccstatc bna habnu rasa naya najaiya prahrta-rasa suna-bnahta gaya naprahrta ccstatc-maiciial cndcavois; bna-O bioilcis!; habnu-anyiimc; rasa-mcllow; naya na-can ncvci bc; jaiya-ol maiici; prahrta-rasa-mundanc mcllow; suna-bnahta-a puic dcvoicc; gaya na-ncvci sings.1) O brofhers!
