Question: Worship and Pure Devotional Service

Thank you for the answer to my previous query. I want to know what is the difference between worship and pure devotional service.

Ruchika


Answer: Worship is One of the Items

There are nine ways to render pure devotional service to the Lord:

1. Hearing about the Lord
2. Chanting the glories of the Lord
3. Remembering the Lord
4. Serving the Lord
5. Worshiping the Lord
6. Praying to the Lord
7. Obeying the Lord
8. Maintaining friendship with the Lord
9. Surrendering everything to the Lord

So as you can see, worshiping is one of the nine different ways to render pure devotional service to the Lord. If we can perfect any one of the nine items, our spiritual lives will be successful. In this age, the first two items, hearing and chanting, are the most essential.
