"As it is stated in the Caitanya-caritamrta, the only master is Krsna, and all others are servants. The whole world is under the waves of the material spell, and beings are floating like straws in water. So their struggle for existence is continuing. But as soon as one becomes conscious that he is the eternal servant of the Supreme Personality of Godhead, this maya or illusory struggle for existence is immediately stopped."
(Krsna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Chapter 13)
