As soon as you will lose the spirit of service, this temple will become a big go-down, that's all. No more temple. So we have to maintain that service spirit. Therefore we are so much particular - "Why fresh flower is not there?" If you think, "Here is a stone statue. What is the meaning of fresh flower or old flower? We have to give some flower. That's all." But no feeling, that "Here is Krishna. We must give fresh flower." Just like I'm a living man, if you give me a fresh flower, and if you bring some garbage, and if you give me, shall I be pleased? Do you think?


So this feeling is losing even in the beginning, that "We shall satisfy this statue with some rubbish, garbage flowers. He's not going to protest." Yes, He'll not protest. But your life will be finished. The protest will come like that. As soon as you lost the feeling, bhava, budha bhava-samanvitah [Bhagavad-gita 10.8]. Who can worship Krishna? When there is bhava. Sthayi-bhava. This has been discussed in Bhakti-rasamrta-sindhu, what is bhava. But if you have no bhava, then you are on the material, kanistha-adhikari. Simply show. A show cannot go on many days. Show will be finished very soon.
