A pure chanter never sees the world as meant for his own enjoyment. Rather, he sees the world and everything in it as meant for Krsna’s pleasure. Because a devotee takes a submissive position in hearing and chanting, never abandoning the maha-mantra, which he received from his spiritual master, he is
neither eager nor interested in propagating new ideas or opinions.
