A Bouquet of Woeful Entreaties
by Bhaktabandhav

Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu offered Raghunatha dasa Gosvami to Svarupa Damodara. Under the shelter and guidance of Svarupa Damodara, Dasa Gosvami followed the process of service in Vraja.

Caitanya Mahaprabhu instructed Dasa Gosvami:

amani Manada hana krsna-nama sada la'be
vraje radha-krsna-seva manase karibe
Caitanya-caritamrta, Madhya-lila 6.237

Do not expect honor, but offer all respect to others. Always chant the holy name of Lord Krsna, and within your mind render service to Radha and Krsna in Vrndavana.

By sincerely chanting the holy names, while respecting all according to their position, and not being eager for respect from others, the tendency to serve Radha- Krsna in Vraja shall arise. As a result of pure chanting, the Lord's form shall appear in the heart, followed by His qualities and pastimes. At that stage, absorption of the mind in Radha-Krsna's pastimes will be natural, not artificial. Krsna and His names are non- different. When one purely chants these, He will come in the heart and perform His loving pastimes with all His associates. His lila-sakti, pastime potency, is always with Him. She gives the tendency and qualification to serve Krsna.
