Nectar of Instruction 4, Translation and Purport: Offering gifts in charity, accepting charitable gifts, revealing one’s mind in confidence, inquiring confidentially, accepting prasāda and offering prasāda are the six symptoms of love shared by one devotee and another.

api chet suduråchåro, bhajate måm ananya-bhåk
sådhur eva sa mantavyah, samyag vyavasito hi sah [30]
k!ipram bhavati dharmåtmå, sasvach-chhåntim nigachchhati
kaunteya pratijånihi, na me bhaktah pranasyati [31

30. If even a very sinful person serves Me exclusively
with devotion, he should be regarded as saintly, for his
resolve is perfect.

31. He swiftly becomes a person of virtuous practices and
attains constant peace. O son of Kunti, declare to the
world that My devotee is never vanquished!


31. O son of Kunti, declare to the world that My devotee
is never vanquished. One who declares this swiftly becomes
virtuous and attains eternal joy.


The second interpretation of this verse was revealed to
Srila Bhaktivinoda ¢håkur in a dream.

In the Srimad Bhagavatam (11.11.32) Lord Sri Krishna says…

“The best of the saintly persons are those who have
surpassed the forms of duties that I, Myself, have recom-
mended in the scriptures for the people in general.
Although it is My directive, they cross it and render lov-
ing service to Me.”

In society, one must obey the law, but there is also the
situation of crossing the law to show fidelity to the king.
If one risks his life and reputation, and crossing the gen-
eral law enters the royal chamber to combat an assassin,
then he will be considered the most loyal servitor.

Similarly, the Lord is saying, “I have already given some
direction for the people in general. Do this, don’t do that,
don’t cross these laws, etc. But if for My interest anyone
takes the risk of committing sin, then he should be con-
sidered the best of My devotees.

“So, Arjuna, go and declare it, promise to the public
that the ananya-bhåk {verse 30}, the exclusively devoted
persons, will never come to ruin. Then you will get the
benefit. You will become dharmåtmå, religious, and attain
eternal divine happiness. The ananya-bhåk, the exclusive
devotees, have already crossed the threshold of dharma,
the standard of dutifulness, and taken the risk to throw
themselves fully into my service. Sarva dharmån pari-
tyajya måm ekam saranam vraja {18.66}. There is no
question of them ‘becoming’ virtuous or religious as they
long before surpassed dharma and took the risk and entered
into prema-dharma, My loving service, transcending both
piety and sinfulness.”
