    The only way to obtain Krsna`s mercy
    is through His causeless love,
    and Krsna is most lovingly inclined
    toward those devotees who are
    most dependent on Him,
    just as ordinary mothers and fathers
    worry more about their children
    than about those who are self-sufficient.

    Loving devotional service to Krsna
    is the only process that can
    completely purify our consciousness.
    Such service produce
    waves of ecstatic love that
    completely cleanse our soul.
    Pure devotional service to Krsna
    is so powerful that
    it burns to ashes
    any obstacle encountered
    on the path of progress.

    The material world is full of
    irritating and stressful situations.
    So we should be patient,
    tolerant and forgiving,
    otherwise we will develop
    a vindictive mentality which
    will spoil our devotional life.

    EIGHT PRAYERS TO GURUDEVA.

    Sri Gurvastakam
    (Eight Prayers to the Spiritual Master)
    by Srila Vishvanatha Chakravarti Thakura

    samsara-davanala-lidha-loka
    tranaya karunya-ghanaghanatwam
    praptasya kalyana-gunarnavasya
    vande guroh sri-charanaravindam

    "The spiritual master is receiving benediction from the ocean of mercy. Just as a cloud pours water on a forest fire to extinguish it, so the spiritual master delivers the materially afflicted world by extinguishing the blazing fire of material existence. I offer my respectful obeisances unto the lotus feet of such a spiritual master, who is an ocean of auspicious qualities.

    mahapraboh kirtana-nritya-gita
    vaditra-madyan-manaso rasena
    romancha-kampashru-taranga-bhajo
    vande guroh sri-charanaravindam

    "Chanting the holy name, dancing in ecstasy, singing, and playing musical instruments, the spiritual master is always gladdened by the sankirtana movement of Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu. Because he is relishing the mellows of pure devotion within his mind, sometimes his hair stands on end, he feels quivering in his body, and tears flow from his eyes like waves. I offer my respectful obeisances unto the lotus feet of such a spiritual master.

    sri-vigraharadhana-nitya-nana
    shringara-tan-mandira-marjanadau
    yuktasya bhaktam cha niyunjato pi
    vande guroh sri-charanaravindam

    "The spiritual master is always engaged in the temple worship of Sri Sri Radha and Krsna. He also engages his disciples in such worship. They dress the Deities in beautiful clothes and ornaments, clean Their temple, and perform other similar worship of the Lord. I offer my respectful obeisances unto the lotus feet of such a spiritual master.

    chatur-vidha-sri-bhagavat-prasada
    swadv-anna-triptan hari-bhakta-sanghan
    kritwaiva triptim bhajatah sadaiva
    vande guroh sri-charanaravindam

    "The spiritual master is always offering Krsna four kinds of delicious food (analyzed as those which are licked, chewed, drunk, and swallowed). When the spiritual master sees that the devotees are satisfied by eating bhagavat-prasada, he is satisfied. I offer my respectful obeisances unto the lotus feet of such a spiritual master.

    sri-radhika-madhavayor apara
    madhurya-lila-guna-rupa-namnam
    prati-kshanaswadana-lolupasya
    vande guroh sri-charanaravindam

    "The spiritual master is always eager to hear and chant about the unlimited conjugal pastimes of Radhika and Madhava, and Their qualities, names, and forms. The spiritual master aspires to relish these at every moment. I offer my respectful obeisances unto the lotus feet of such a spiritual master.

    nikunja-yuno rati-keli-siddhyai
    ya yalibhir yuktir apekshaniya
    tatrati-dakshyad ati-vallabhasya
    vande guroh sri-charanaravindam

    "The spiritual master is very dear, because he is expert in assisting the gopis, who at different times make different tasteful arrangements for the perfection of Radha and Krsna's conjugal loving affairs within the groves of Vrndavana. I offer my most humble obeisances unto the lotus feet of such a spiritual master.

    sakshad-dharitvena samasta-shastrair
    uktas tatha bhavyata eva sadbhihi
    kintu prabhor yah priya eva tasya
    vande guroh sri-charanaravindam

    "The spiritual master is to be honored as much as the Supreme Lord, because he is the most confidential servitor of the Lord. This is acknowledged in all revealed scriptures and followed by all authorities. Therefore I offer my respectful obeisances unto the lotus feet of such a spiritual master, who is a bona fide representative of Sri Hari (Krsna).

    yasya prasadad bhagavat-prasado
    yasyaprasadan na gatih kuto 'pi
    dhyayan stuvams tasya yashas trisandhyam
    vande guroh sri-charanaravindam

    "By the mercy of the spiritual master one receives the benediction of Krsna. Without the grace of the spiritual master, one cannot make any advancement. Therefore, I should always remember and praise the spiritual master. At least three times a day I should offer my respectful obeisances unto the lotus feet of my spiritual master."
