PHULA SRUTI

The aspirant who recites this hymn on the full moon day, on the eighth day of the waxing moon, and on the tenth, eleventh and thirteenth days of the waxing and waning moons, achieves the fruition of his desires and, by the grace of Shri Radhika's compassionate sidelong glance, bhakti characterized by prema sprouts in his heart.

The aspirant who recites this hymn one hundred times, while immersed in the waters of Shri Radha kunda, either up to his waist, up to his navel, up to his chest, or up to his neck, achieves the perfection of his desired ends and whatever he speaks comes true, he is endowed with full spiritual opulence and gets the direct, personal darshan of Shrimati Radharani.

Being pleased with him, Shrimati Radhika immediately grants him the greatest benediction and he gets to see with his own eyes Her darling sweet Lord, Shri Syamasundara. The Lord of Vraja, in His turn, grants that devotee an entrance into His eternal sports. For the Vaishnavas there is no greater goal to be achieved than this.
