" Lord Kapil telling the glory of devotion, said:-The symptoms of a Sadhu are that he is tolerant, merciful and friendly to all living entities. He has no enemies, he is peaceful, he abides by the scriptures, and all his characteristics are sublime.[21]

Such a Sadhu engages in staunch devotional services to the Lord without deviation. For the sake of the Lord he renounces all other connections, such as family relationships and friendly acquaintances within the world.[22]

Engaged constantly in changing and hearing about Me, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, the Sadhus do not suffer from material miseries because they are always filled with thoughts of My pastimes and activities.[23]

One has to become faithful by practicing the controlling process of the Yoga system and must elevate himself to the platform of unalloyed devotional services by chanting and hearing about Me.[6]

In executing devotional service, one has to see every living entity equally, without enmity towards anyone yet without intimate connections with anyone, One has to observe celibacy, be grave and execute his eternal activities, offering the result to the Supreme Personality of Godhead.[7]

For his income a devotee should be satisfied with what he earns without great difficulty. He should not eat more that what is necessary. He should live in a secluded place and always be thoughtful, peaceful, friendly, compassionate and self-realized.[8]

One’s seeing power should be increased through knowledge of sprit and matter, and one should not unnecessarily identify himself with the body and thus become attracted by bodily relationships.[9]

One should be situated in the transcendental position beyond the stage of material consciousness, and should be aloof from all other conceptions of life. Thus realizing freedom from false ego, one should see his own self just as he sees the sun in the sky[10]

A liberated soul realizes the Absolute Personality of Godhead, who is transcendental and who is manifest as a reflection even in the false ego. He is the support of the material cause and He enters into everything. He is absolute, one without a second, and He is the eyes of the illusory energy.[11]

This devotional services has to be performed strongly in perfect knowledge and with transcendental vision. One must be strongly renounced and must engage in austerity and perform mystic yoga in order firmly in self absorption.[22]

The influence of material has covered the living entity, and thus it is as if the living entity were always in a blazing fire.

" Referring to the power of Time and essence of Devotion , the high personality of Godhead said:-A devoted must execute his prescribed duties, which are glorious, without material profit. Without excessive violence, one should regularly perform one’s devotional activities.[15]

The devotee should regularly see My status in the temple, touch My lotus feet and offer worshipable paraphernalia and prayer. He should see in the spirit of renunciation, from the  mode of goodness, and see every living entity as spiritual.[16]

The pure devotee should execute devotional services by giving the greatest respect to the spiritual master and the acharyas. He should be compassionate to the poor and make friendship with persons who are his equals, but all his activities should be executed under regulation and with control of the senses.[17] 

A devoted should always try to hear about spiritual mattes and should always utilize his time in chanting the holy name of the Lord. His behavior should always be straightforward and  simple , and although he is not envious but  friendly to everyone,  he should avoid the company of persons who are not spiritually advanced.[18]

When one is fully qualified with all these transcendental attributes and his consciousness is thus completely purified, he is immediately attracted simple by hearing My name or hearing of My transcendental quality.[19]
