How to please the Lord

Prahalad pleads he doesn’t want to become a merchant in his relationship with God. Furthermore he explains that devotees who approach God for material desires are not pure devotees and even a master who satisfies the material desires of his devotee with a desire to maintain his prestigious position, is not a pure master either.

This question got answered recently when I heard a beautiful class of Srila Prabhupada (July 1’ 1972, San Deigo)in which he emphasized how as devotees of Krishna we need to strive to remember Krishna twenty four hours daily. Read more on website.
