venerable Vaisnava. O ocean of mercy, be merciful unto your servant.
Give me the shade of your lotus feet and purify me. I hold on to your
Teach me to control my six passions; rectify my six
faults, bestow upon me the six qualities, and offer unto me the six
kinds of holy association.
I do not find the strength to carry
on alone the sankirtana of the holy nameof Hari. Please bless me by
giving me just one drop of faith with which to obtain the great treasure
of the holy name of Krsna.
Krsna is yours; you have the power
to give Him to me. I am simply running behind you shouting, "Krsna!
Krsna!" *The six passions are those pertaining to speach, the mind,
anger, the tongue, the stomach and the genitals. The six faults are
overeating, attachment to material things, inability to follow vaisnava
etiquit, sense gratification, useless idle talk, and impure habits. The
six positive qualities are enthusiasm in practicing devotion, firm faith
in the devotional process, a strong desire to attain prema-bhakti, a
favorable service attitude, avoidance of non-devotees, and a real
appreciation of genuine devotees. The six methods of association are to
go to an assembly of sadhus, to invite saintly persons into one's home,
to discuss and hear devotional topics, to take the maha-prasada of great
realized souls and to offer maha-prasada to sadhus.
