Process of chanting

“A devotee tries to remain detached from material things, and by chanting, hearing, reading and associating with the devotees, he tries to allow one’s natural love for Krishna to manifest. He prays to Nitai Gaura for Their mercy and fervently asks, “When will I have pure love for You?” He begs the Lord for shelter just as Lord Caitanya prayed in Sikshastaka, ‘Please have Me fixed as a speck of dust at Your lotus feet’.”
