iti mamadbhutam stavam nishamya bhanu-nandini
karotu santatam janam kripa-kataksha-bhajanam
bhavet tadaiva sancita-trirupa-karma-nashanam
bhavet tada vrajendra-sunu-mandala-praveshanam

Upon hearing this most astonishing prayer of mine being recited by a devotee, may Sri Vrishhabhanu-nandini constantly make him the object of Her most merciful sidelong glance. At that time all his karmic reactions – whether mature, fructifying, or lying in seed – will be completely destroyed, and then he will gain entrance into the assembly of Nandanandana’s eternal loving associates.


PHALA SRUTI (THE BENEFIT OF RECITING THIS PRAYER)

The aspirant who recites this hymn on the full-moon day, on the eighth day of the waxing moon, and on the tenth, eleventh and thirteenth days of the waxing and waning moons, achieves the fruition of his desires and, by the grace of Sri Radhika’scompassionate sidelong glance, bhakti characterized by prema sprouts in his heart.

The aspirant who recites this hymn one hundred times, while immersed in the waters of Sri Radha-kunda, either up to his waist, up to his navel, up to his chest, or up to his neck, achieves the perfection of his desired ends and whatever he speaks comes true, he is endowed with full spiritual opulence and gets the direct, personal darshan of Srimati Radharani.

Being pleased with him, Srimati Radhika immediately grants him the greatest benediction and he gets to see with his own eyes Her darling sweet Lord, Sri Syamasundara. The Lord of Vraja, in His turn, grants that devotee an entrance into His eternal sports. For the Vaisnavas there is no greater goal to be achieved than this.

About Gopi

A closer look at any activity will reveal the truth that one's own contribution to it is negligible compared to the things provided by nature & the role of the unseen hand in facilitating it.
