So long as all Vasanas are not completely annihilated, it will not be possible for us to eschew all worldly desires. In the early stages, there is no harm in seeking fulfillment of desires from the Lord who is the father, mother, master, and all-in-all for a devotee. In the Bhagavad Gita, the one who seeks material favours from the Lord (an Artharthi) is classed as one of the four categories of His devotees (Bhaktas). By constantly taking the Lord's name and remembering Him, a day will dawn when the mind will get purified and the Sadhaka will get rid of all the desires including that of liberation.
