“This is a sincere and just prayer by the devotee to the Lord to, ‘Kindly in spite of my unqualified nature, if You will have mercy and be present in my heart so that I can simply serve You without any impediments.’ This is only possible by the mercy of the spiritual master that the Lord will reside in one’s heart.”
