The jivas (souls) natural condition is to be a servant of Krsna. The jiva is the marginal potency of Krsna, and a manifestation which is both one with and different from Krsna. (Sri Caitanya-caritamrta, Madhya 20.108)
The author has based Jaiva-Dharm on this sloka, which is the bija-mantra (fundamental aphorism) of all instructions for Gaudiya Vaisnavas. Therefore, this book is beneficial and acceptable for all human beings, beyond distinctions of race, caste, stage of life, time, place or person. Not only that, it is beneficial even for jivas who take birth in other species, whether stones, animals, birds, insects, aquatics, or other moving and non-moving entities.
