    Dandavat jopmala,

    well, karma (prescribed activity) is the activity according one's dharma (prescribed duty), the other possibilities are vikarma and akarma.
    The prescribed duty according varnashram dharma system is called naimittk (occasional) dharma, that one has to fulfill in a particular life.

    Nitya Dharma is the eternal Dharma, the eternal duty of the soul, when one realizes one's spiritual body and the loving relation with the Lord of one's heart.
    To attain this level one has to get to the meditational type of bhakti, which in the case of Gaudiya Vaishnavas is called Raganuga sadhan bhakti.

    sevA sAdhaka-rUpeNa siddha-rUpeNa cAtra hi |
    tad-bhAva-lipsunA kAryA vraja-lokAnusArataH ||

    Bhakti-rasamrita-sindhu 1.2.295

    The devotional service should be done -sevA atra hi
    in the body of practitioner (externally)- sAdhaka-rUpeNa
    and in the perfect (spiritual) body (internally) - ca siddha-rUpeNa
    Desiring to obtain a particular state of love - tad-bhAva-lipsunA ,
    the most important (the essence) is to follow -sArataH kAryA anu
    the residents of Vrindavan - vraja-loka

    Krishna Das Kaviraj re-affirms Sri Rupa’s statements in Madhya 22.156-157:

    bāhya, antara, — ihāra dui ta' sādhana
    'bāhye' sādhaka-dehe kare śravaṇa-kīrtana

    'mane' nija-siddha-deha kariyā bhāvana
    rātri-dine kare vraje kṛṣṇera sevana

    This (Raganuga bhakti) is really a dual Practice - ihārata' dui sādhana
    external (and) internal - bāhya antara
    Externally in the trainee body one does hearing and chanting - bāhye sādhaka dehe kare śravaṇa kīrtana
    In the mind one does visualize (imagine) one's own perfect body - mane kariyā bhāvana nija siddha-deha
    and day and night (in the mind!)one does service for Krishna in Vraja - ratri-dine kare sevana kṛṣṇera vraje.

    nitya-siddha kṛṣṇa-prema 'sādhya' kabhu naya
    śravaṇādi-śuddha-citte karaye udaya

    The eternal perfect love for Krișna - nitya-siddha prema kṛṣṇa
    is not obtain at a particular time - naya sādhya kabhu
    Beginning with hearing (about the pastimes of the Supreme Lord) - ādi śravaṇa
    The heart is purified and it (love) awakens - citte śuddha karaye udaya

    Caitanya Caritamrita 2.22.107-108

    ei ta sādhana-bhakti — dui ta' prakāra
    eka 'vaidhī bhakti', 'rāgānugā-bhakti' āra

    This bhakti practice is of two kinds - ei ta sādhana-bhakti dui ta prakāra
    One bhakti follows the general vaishnava regulative principles - eka bhakti vaidhī
    the other bhakti follows the attachment (or the feelings of the residents of Vrindavan for Krishna) - āra bhakti rāgānugā

    rāga-hīna jana bhaje śāstrera ājńāya
    'vaidhī bhakti' bali' tāre sarva-śāstre gāya

    The persons without attachment (to follow the feelings of the residents of Vrindavan for Krishna) - jana hīna rāga
    do worship according the general knowledge of vaishnava writings - bhaje śāstrera ājńāya
    saying that vaidhī bhakti - bali vaidhī bhakti
    it is glorified in all spiritual writings - tāre gāya sarva-śāstre

    Re: Sri Krishna's instructions to Sanatan

    Madhya 22.85-90

    ata ātyantikaḿ kṣemaḿ
    pṛcchāmo bhavato 'naghāḥ
    saḿsāre 'smin kṣaṇārdho 'pi
    sat-sańgaḥ sevadhir nṛṇām

    Therefore, o sinless one, I ask you - ataḥ anaghāḥ bhavataḥ pṛcchāmaḥ
    About the supreme auspiciousness - ātyantikam kṣemam
    (Answer): association with the spiritual realized person - sańgaḥ sat
    Even for a half a second - api ardhaḥ kṣaṇa
    Is the treasure of mankind - sevadhiḥ nṛṇām
    In this perishable world - asmin saḿsāre

    Tika:
    This is a quote from Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam (11.2.30).

    satāḿ prasańgān mama vīrya-saḿvido
    bhavanti hṛt-karṇa-rasāyanāḥ kathāḥ
    taj-joṣaṇād āśv apavarga-vartmani
    śraddhā ratir bhaktir anukramiṣyati

    In the association of the saints – prasańgāt satām
    Through discussion about My wonderful activities - saḿvidaḥ mama vīrya
    Is possible to taste the flavor -bhavanti rasa-ayanāḥ
    Of those narrations in the heart in the ears –kathāḥ hṛt karṇa
    By these activities (one steps) quickly - tat joṣaṇāt āśu
    On the road of liberation (from the material world) -apavarga vartmani-
    And one after another (one gets) -anukramiṣyati-
    Faith (in the Lord), -śraddhā
    Divine attraction (for Him) -ratiḥ-
    (and finlly) devotional service (for the Lord) (in one owns spiritual body - siddha deha) -bhaktiḥ.

    Tika:
    This is a quote from Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam (3.25.25).

    asat-sańga tyāga ei vaiṣṇava-ācāra
    strī-sańgī eka asādhu kṛṣṇābhakta āra

    Renounce the association with those devoid of spirituality -tyāga sańga asat
    Take to the vaishnava behavior - ei ācāra vaiṣṇava
    One devoid of spirituality associate with women - eka asādhu strī-sańgī
    Another is not a devote of Krișna - āra abhakta kṛṣṇa

    satyaḿ śaucaḿ dayā maunaḿ
    buddhir hrīḥ śrīr yaśaḥ kṣamā
    śamo damo bhagaś ceti
    yat-sańgād yāti sańkṣayam

    teṣv aśānteṣu mūḍheṣu
    khaṇḍitātmasv asādhuṣu
    sańgaḿ na kuryāc chocyeṣu
    yoṣit-krīḍā-mṛgeṣu ca

    na tathāsya bhaven moho
    bandhaś cānya-prasańgataḥ
    yoṣit-sańgād yathā puḿso
    yathā tat-sańgi-sańgataḥ

    By that association (with those devoid of spirituality) - yat-sańgād (asadbhiḥ)
    truthfulness, cleanliness, mercy, silence - satyaḿ śaucaḿ dayā maunaḿ
    intelligence, modesty, beauty, fame , forgiveness - buddhir hrīḥ śrīr yaśaḥ kṣamā
    internal equilibrium , controlling the senses and opulence - ca śamo damo bhagaś
    are thus destroyed, by that association - yāti iti sańkṣayam yat sańgāt

    Among those you don’t have to associate are - teṣu na kuryāt sańgam
    The one devoid of peacefulness, the ignorant devoid of knowledge about the soul - aśānteṣu mūḍheṣu khaṇḍita-ātmasu
    The one devoid of spirituality, the lamenting one - asādhuṣu śocyeṣu
    And the one who is like a toy animal played with by women - ca mṛgeṣu krīḍā yoṣit

    The illusion due to association with anything else - mohaḥ bhavet prasańgataḥ anya
    Doesn’t bind one (to this world) in such a measure - na bandhaḥ tathā asya
    Like association with women (opposite sex) - yoṣit-sańgāt
    As well as (the association) with people associating with people who associate with women - yathā puḿsaḥ tat-sańgi-sańgataḥ ca

    Tika:
    The quotes were given from Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam (3.31.33-35), where the Supreme Lord Kapiladeva, instructed His mother.

    Re: Sri Krishna's instructions to Sanatan

    Madhya 22.91-94

    varaḿ huta-vaha-jvālā-
    pańjarāntar-vyavasthitiḥ
    na śauri-cintā-vimukha-
    jana-saḿvāsa-vaiśasam

    It is better to be inside of a cage - varam vyavasthitiḥ antaḥ pańjara
    in the flames of a fire - jvālā huta-vaha
    instead of calamity of being associated with persons - na vaiśasam saḿvāsa jana
    lacking godly consciousness - vimukha cintā śauri

    Tika:
    This has been quoted from Kātyāyana-saḿhitā.

    mā drākṣīḥ kṣīṇa-puṇyān kvacid api bhagavad-bhakti-hīnān manuṣyān

    And even never look at - api kvacit mā drākṣīḥ
    persons lacking piety- manuṣyān kṣīṇa puṇyān
    and lacking devotion for the Supreme Lord - hīnān bhakti bhagavat

    eta saba chāḍi' āra varṇāśrama dharma
    akińcana hańā laya kṛṣṇaika-śaraṇa

    Renouncing all the occupational duties - chāḍi eta saba dharma
    (regarding) the social and sacral activities - varṇa-āśrama
    and lacking any possession - āra akińcana
    one should take Krishna as one’s only shelter - hańā laya kṛṣṇa-eka-śaraṇa

    Than Șri Cetania gave a famous quote from Bhagavad-gītā (18.66)

    sarva-dharmān parityajya
    mām ekaḿ śaraṇaḿ vraja
    ahaḿ tvāḿ sarva-pāpebhyo
    mokṣayiṣyāmi mā śucaḥ

    Renounce all occupation duties- parityajya sarva-dharman
    Take Me as the only shelter- vraja mam ekam saranam
    I will free you from any sinful reactions- aham tvam mokshayishyami sarva-papebhyah
    Do not worry - ma sucah.
