Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 3.25.28

devahūtir uvāca

kācit tvayy ucitā bhaktiḥ

kīdṛśī mama gocarā

yayā padaḿ te nirvāṇam

añjasānvāśnavā aham


devahūtiḥ uvācaDevahūti said; kācit — what; tvayi — unto You; ucitā — proper; bhaktiḥ — devotional service; kīdṛśī — what kind; mama — by me; go-carā — fit to be practiced; yayā — by which; padam — feet; te — Your; nirvāṇam — liberation; añjasā — immediately; anvāśnavai — shall attain; ahamI.


On hearing this statement of the Lord, Devahūti inquired: What kind of devotional service is worth developing and practicing to help me easily and immediately attain the service of Your lotus feet?


It is stated in Bhagavad-gītā that no one is barred from rendering service to the Lord. Whether one is a woman or a laborer or a merchant, if he engages himself in the devotional service of the Lord he is promoted to the highest perfectional state and goes back home, back to Godhead. The devotional service most suitable for different types of devotees is determined and fixed by the mercy of the spiritual master.
