Transcendental loving service for the Supreme Lord is the natural inclination of everyone, but due to the living entity’s association with material nature, this tendency is covered. By the grace of the Lord and His devotees, a living being becomes fortunate. In association with the Lord’s pure devotees one gets to hear the Lord’s pure glories. Certainly then a flow of devotional service takes place like the flow of a river. As a river flows to the sea, similarly, devotional service flows until it reaches the ultimate goal, namely, love of God.
The great Rsi Narada is an empowered incarnation of the Personality of Godhead who propagates devotional service all over the universe. Great devotees of the Lord are his disciples. Srila Vyasadeva, the compiler of the Srimad-Bhagavatam, is one disciple. Narada is the author of Narada-paticaratra, an exposition of the Vedas particularly meant for teaching the devotional service of the Lord. This trains fruitive workers how to achieve liberation from the bondage of work.
