In the Shikshashtaka, Verse 3, Lord Gauranga states:
trinad api sunicena, taror api sahishnuna;
amanina manadena, kirtaniyah sada harih.
“One can chant the holy name of the Lord in a humble state of mind, thinking himself lower than the straw in the street. One should be more tolerant than the tree, devoid of all sense of false prestige and ready to offer all respects to others. ln such a state of mind one can chant the holy name of the Lord constantly.”
