“A feature of the devotee”

– Srila Prabhupada quoted by Indradyumna Swami

“Another feature of the devotee is nirihaya, simple living. Niriha means ‘gentle,’ ‘meek’ or ‘simple.’ A devotee should not live very gorgeously and imitate a materialistic person. Plain living and high thinking are recommended for a devotee. He should accept only so much as he needs to keep the material body fit for the execution of devotional service.”

[ SB 4.22.24 purport ]
