One receives duties from the spiritual master, scriptures and Vaishnava’s, which are from a higher plain of existence, beyond the mind which has the tendency to accept and reject on the basis of sense gratification. As long as we accept on the basis of sense gratification, how can we know that it is our duty. It is not possible. Therefore we have to get our duty from a higher state of existence, beyond the mind.
