TEXT 254
ei papa yaya mora, kemana upaye?
nistara karaha more, padon tomara paye"
ei—this; papa yaya mora—sinful reaction of my life can be washed off; kemana upaye—by what means; nistara karaha more—kindly deliver me; padon—I fall down; tomara paye—at your lotus feet.
"The hunter continued, 'My dear sir, please tell me how I can be relieved from the reactions of my sinful life. Now I fully surrender unto you and fall down at your lotus feet. Please deliver me from sinful reactions.'
By the grace of Narada Muni, the hunter came to his good senses and immediately surrendered unto the saint's lotus feet. This is the process. By associating with a saintly person, one is able to understand the reactions of his sinful life. When one voluntarily surrenders to a saintly person who is a representative of Krsna and follows his instructions, one can become freed from sinful reaction. Krsna demands the surrender of a sinful man, and Krsna's representative gives the same instructions. The representative of Krsna never tells his disciple, "Surrender unto me." Rather he says, "Surrender unto Krsna." If the disciple accepts this principle and surrenders himself through the representative of Krsna, his life is saved.
