Sometimes people have this fixed conception in their mind that, when they have heard from somebody, then they need a mission. “What’s my service? What’s my mission? What am I going to do?” They start thinking that mission means doing something with the body. If they don’t go on hearing, then sometimes due to impurities that are still within the heart – anarthas, a lot of anarthas, unwanted things within the heart – if one doesn’t go on hearing, then one can lose sight of the goal of the service.
