(Srila Prabhupada bowing to Radha Gokulananda, Bhaktivedanta Manor, 1973)
"This process of offering whatever one has in one's possession for the pleasure of the spiritual master or Krsna is recommended in the Bhagavad gita by the Lord Himself when he says, 'yat karosi yad asnasi yat karosi dadasi yat... (BG 9.27).' and 'tad viddhi pranipatena pariprasnena sevaya. . . (BG 4.34)'. This process of offering everything in one's possession or ability is the recommended means for losing all attachment to material things and all attachment to material sense gratification. When one has become purified by this process of offering everything back to the Supreme he becomes simply attached to pleasing the Supreme Lord. This is the perfection of life."
