The Essence

Master, which is the great commandment in the law? Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. - Mathew 22: 36-37

The supreme occupation [dharma] for all humanity is that by which men can attain to loving devotional service unto the transcendent Lord. Such devotional service must be unmotivated and uninterrupted to completely satisfy the self. – SB 1.2.6

And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets. - Mathew 22: 38-40

mad-bhakta-pūjābhyadhikā - The Lord is extremely satisfied with those who offer worship to His pure devotees. – SB 11.19-20-24
