Devotional service should not be rendered in a proud way. We should not think that rendering service is to show how nice we are, how good we are, how devoted we are. Rendering service in a proper state of mind means to always take a position of being menial and insignificant. We may not have this consciousness of menial significance frame of mind but we should aspire for that when we chant the holy name of the Lord. When we aspire in all our devotional practices for this most glorious position of das dasanu das,being in the mood of servant, then Krishna will take our prayers seriously and then by His Grace, He will remove ahankara, the false ego. Until He removes it, we will all be imprisoned by it. You do not have the power to remove it, but by your humble menial service to the Lord you will attract His Divine Mercy. He removes it. And for Him, nothing is impossible.
