Real Self-Interest

Prahlada Maharaja says man does not know,

That his real self-interest is to Vishnu’s realm to go.


Svartha for sense gratification to acquire,

Paramartha for spiritual realm to aspire.


But in bhakti-yoga no such distinction,

For devotional service is desired condition.


With worldly life King Janaka thought he was done,

But changed when seeing visitors who had come.


Rama and Lakshmana, of beauty one couldn’t believe.

From attachment to them real self-interest receive.
