Rupa Goswami explains what is Yukta Vairagya? That which can be utilized in Krsna’s service should not be rejected but it should be utilized in Krsna’s service. “To reject something that can be used in devotional service is incomplete renunciation but to dovetail all the gifts of God for the pleasure of god that is real renunciation. But we have to…
 
To think one self lower than the blade of grass. Sometimes Prabhupada would say to think one self lower than the straw on the street.

The first day he embraced him, he cried tears of affection, he stroked his head and said your life is successful. You are carrying on Parampara.
