A life of devotion

(This is a general rule. Individual consideration is given to each applicant’s circumstances and qualifications.)

“Absorb thy mind in Me; become My devotee; resign all things to Me; bow down to Me. Thou art dear to Me, so in truth do I promise thee: Thou shalt attain Me! Forsaking all other dharmas (duties), remember Me alone!”
