nama om visnu-padaya krsna-presthaya bhu-tale

(C) Chant Gayatri mantra: 

 (D) Purify the Bodily elements by identifying oneself as the eternal servant of the servant of Lord Krsna (Bhuta-suddhi):

  • Recite the following prayers, meditating on their meaning

I am by nature the eternal servant of Krsna. But because of my bad fortune, I have been inimical toward Him from time immemorial, and thus I have identified myself with my body and continuously wandered in the cycle of birth and death in the material world, suffering the burning threefold miseries. Now, as a result of some unimaginable good fortune, my spiritual master’s mercy has enabled me to know that I am Krsna’s eternal servant, an infinitesimal spiritual being completely apart from the gross and subtle body. And so by the order of my spiritual master I have obtained the good fortune of serving his lotus feet and, following in his footsteps, the lotus feet of Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu and Sri Sri Radha-Vrindavancandra.

Chant the following prayers:

nähaà vipro na ca nara-patir näpi vaiçyo na çüdro nähaà varëé na ca gåha-patir no vanastho yatir vä kintu prodyan-nikhila-paramänanda-pürnämåtäbdher         gopé-bhartuù pada-kamalayor däsa-däsänudäsaù

‘I am not a brahmana, I am not a ksatriya, I am not a vaisya or a sudra. Nor am I a brahmacari, a householder, a vanaprastha, or a sanyasi. I identify myself only as the servant of the servant of the servant of the lotus feet of Lord Sri Krsna, the maintainer of the gopls. He is like an ocean of nectar, and He is the cause of universal transcendental bliss. He is always existing with brilliance’.

Om apavitraù pavitro vä   sarvävasthäà gato ‘pi vä yaù smaret puëòarékäkñaà    sa   bahyäbhyantaraà çuciù

 ‘Whether pure or impure or having passed through all conditions of material life one who remembers lotus eyed Krishna becomes internally and externally clean.’

 

(E) Meditation on the form of the Spiritual Master (dhyana):

Meditate on the place where your spiritual master is situated: ‘At the yogapitha in Sri Mayapur, in the spiritual abode of Navadvipa, Lord Gaurasundara sits on a jeweled throne. On His right is Lord Nityananda, on His left Sri Gadadhara. In front, with joined palms are Sri Advaita and Srivasa Thakura, who holds an umbrella over Lord Caitanya’s head. On a jeweled platform below Lord Gauranga’s throne, my spiritual master sits.’

While chanting the  above mantra, meditate that your spiritual master is sitting by the side of Çréla Prabhupäda and the other members of the guru-paramparä.

  • While chanting the following mantra, meditate on your spiritual master’s form:

prätaù çréman-navadvépe dvi-netraà dvi-bhujaà gurum

varäbhaya-pradaà çäntaà smaret tan-näma-pürvakam

In the morning, one should remember the spiritual master as being situated in Çré Navadvépa, having two eyes and two arms, as being peaceful, and as bestowing all benediction and fearlessness upon chanting his name.

I worship Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, who is being served by all His devotees and associates, whose hair is bound with strings of pearls, and whose moonlike face bears the nectar of His gentle smile. His beautiful golden body is adorned with lovely garments, anointed with sandalwood and aguru pulp, and bedecked with garlands and various glistening ornaments. He is extremely charming, absorbed as He is in enjoying the sweet mellows of dancing, and His dress is more splendid than even Cupid’s.

(I) Meditate on offering Lord Caitanya sixteen upacaras :

Then chant the following verses:

May that Lord who is known as the son of Srimatl Sacldevi be transcendentally situated in the innermost core of your heart. Resplendent with the radiance of molten gold, He has descended in the Age of Kali by His causeless mercy to bestow what no incarnation has ever offered before: the most elevated mellow of devotional service, the mellow of conjugal love.
