So Prahlāda Mahārāja is considering that, "Although I am a child, I have no education, my parentage is not at all bona fide, still, devotional service is unconditional. Devotional service does not depend on any material qualification. Therefore I shall try to offer my prayers to the Supreme Lord according to my capacity" Bhāva-grāhī janardana.

Prayers of the devotees to the Lord does not depend on how far you are educated or . . .

What is that sound?

(break) ". . . can pick me up and fix me up on Your lotus feet."

This very much expression of feeling is sufficient, as Lord Caitanya taught us. Everyone can express this feeling. Ayi nanda-tanuja patitaṁ kiṅkaraṁ māṁ (CC Antya 20.32, Śikṣāṣṭaka 5).

Kiṅkaraṁ, I am Your eternal servant. These things have to be accepted. One has to realize his constitutional position. That is self-realization. What I am? I am not the supreme. This is wrong. I am subordinate. This is the Vedic injunction. God is one, and He is great, and all living entities are subordinate.

They are maintained by God. There are millions and trillions of, without any limit of numerical strength, living entities all over the universe, and they are being maintained by the Supreme Lord. That is admitted in every scripture of the world, recognized religious scripture.

It is causing disturb. You can stop. (break) (end)
