May our words ever expound your pastimes, may our ears ever engage in listening to your glories, may our arms and feet be engaged in your service; may our minds ever be fixed on your Holy Feet, may our heads bow down to the whole world which is your manifestation and may our eyes ever behold the Sadhus who are not different from you. …Srimad Bhagavatam: 10:10:38
