The word is explicitly said, kāma. Kāma means desire. That is also sense gratification. To become one with God, it is also sense gratification. When he fails to become the greatest personality, he then desires, "Now let me become one with God." "One with God" means he thinks that he will be equally expert as the supreme enjoyer. Because God is supreme enjoyer, bhoktā. So he could not enjoy life separately; now he wants to mix with the body of God. Therefore . . . that enjoyment is there. The propensity for enjoying is there. He failed to enjoy keeping himself separate, so he wants to mix with God. Just like the politicians.
Whenever there is some political movement, they take some part. Their idea is that, "If I become somehow or other a little prominent, important, I'll have a minister's post." That's all. It is a fact. They do not care for country's welfare. No. There is no such question. Their only ambition is, "Let me mix with this political party. It's growing." Just like in our country, there are so many parties. Recently, Indira Gandhi's party became powerful. So all other men, giving resignation from other party, they took into the party of Indira Gandhi.
So it is like that, merging into the existence of the power. So the frustrated karmīs, frustrated karmīs, when they do not find any happiness even by becoming the greatest or the topmost person, he wants to become one with God. Therefore it is said, brahma-varcasa-kāmas tu. Brahmā-varcasa means effulgence. But it is kāma. That is not akāma. But a devotee is akāma. There is no kāma. He has no personal desire. His desire is only to remain eternal servant of God. That's all. That is his position. That is not desire; that is his actual position.
Just like Caitanya Mahāprabhu says, na dhanaṁ na janaṁ na sundarīṁ kavitāṁ vā jagadīśa kāmaye (Cc. Antya 20.29, Śikṣāṣṭaka 4). Kāmaye, this kāma. "I have no more desire for riches." Karmīs, they want money. Na dhanaṁ na janam, or they want many men to follow, followers. They create party by political agitation. So na dhanaṁ na janam. And another desire is to have very nice, beautiful wife. These are the material desires: to have enough money, enough followers, nice wife. "Bās. My life is now fulfilled." But Kṛṣṇa . . . Caitanya Mahāprabhu denies all these nonsense. Na dhanaṁ na janaṁ na sundarīṁ kavitāṁ vā jagadīśa kāmaye: "I don't want all these things."
So just try to understand the position of Kṛṣṇa conscious person. They have nothing to do with all this nonsense. Then what is our position? Void? Because, "No, no. Not this, not this, not this," then it come to zero? No. Mama janmani janmanīśvare bhavatād bhaktir ahaitukī tvayi (CC Antya 20.29, Śikṣāṣṭaka 4). The positive, bhakti. Not zero. We make all this nonsense zero, but we come to the positive fact. The fact is, "I am eternal servant of God." So that is fact. I have forgotten now, therefore I am desiring so many things. So come to the fact. Come to the fact.
