(Excerpts from Streams of Nectar)
By Sri Sri Sitaramdas Omkarnath

The merciful Lord has said, ‘Those who come
To me saying even once, ‘I am Thine’,
And seek refuge with their afflicted hearts —
I have an eternal pledge to make them free
From fear, I save all those who surrender themselves to me.

Surrender to Him and take
Refuge in Him! The six kinds of surrender
Are—to resolve on what is favourable, to
Avoid what is adverse, to firmly believe
That He gives protection, to welcome Him as the
Protector, to surrender egoism
At His Feet, and to be without possession.
To lay one’s helplessness before Him is
A sign of the devotee’s surrender to the Lord.
Take refuge in Him with body, mind and speech
And ever chant the Name, Sitaram, servant of the Lord.
