“Prabhupada revealed that there is a great secret to becoming advanced in Krishna consciousness. There is a great secret, that secret is one should constantly pray for the mercy of the spiritual master and the previous acaryas to advance in pure devotional service. One should pray.  He should desire the mercy of the great vaishnavas. This is the open secret. Srila Prabhupada, He always showed this, he always was trying to satisfy the desires of the previous acaryas.”
