angani yasya sakalendriya-vrtti-manti
pasyanti panti kalayanti ciram jaganti
govindam adi-purusam tam aham bhajami
I worship Govinda, the primeval Lord, whose transcendental form is full of bliss, truth, substantiality and is thus full of the most dazzling splendor. Each of the limbs of that transcendental figure possesses in Himself, the full-fledged functions of all the organs, and eternally sees, maintains and manifests the infinite universes, both spiritual and mundane.

ACTIVITY IN KRISHNA consciousness, or acting for the benefit of Krishna without expectation of sense gratification, is the highest transcendental quality of work. Even a small beginning of such activity finds no impediment, nor can that small beginning be lost at any stage. Any work begun on the material plane has to be done nicely till the end, otherwise the whole attempt becomes a failure. But any work begun in Krishna consciousness has a permanent effect, even though not finished. The performer of such work is therefore not at a loss even if his work in Krishna consciousness is incomplete. One per cent done in Krishna consciousness bears permanent results, so that the next beginning is from the point of 2 per cent. Whereas, in material activity, without 100 per cent success there is no profit. There is a nice verse in this connection in The Srimad Bhagwatam.
It says: "If someone gives up his occupational duties and works in Krishna consciousness, and then again falls down on account of not being complete in such activities; still, what loss is there on his part? And, what can one gain if one performs his material activities very perfectly?" Or, as the Christians say: "What profiteth a man if he gain the whole world yet suffers the loss of his eternal soul?"
Material activities, and the results of such actions, will end with the body. But work in Krishna consciousness will carry the person again to Krishna consciousness, even after the loss of this body. At least one is sure to have a chance in the next life of being born into human society, either in the family of a great cultured Brahmin, or else in a rich aristocratic family that will give the man a further chance for elevation. That is the unique quality of work done in Krishna consciousness.
