People don’t know what is the actual thing to pray for. So they go and ask for some temporary thing . Just like the yogi who got the benediction of the touchstone from sanatana goswami but later he wanted to know the real valuable thing from Sanatana Goswami , and then Sanatana Goswami gave him the hare Krsna mahamantra . So when we go to someone who is powerful, we should ask something appropriate.
