Oh great soul! It is recommended that in the morning (6-8:24 a.m.), one faithfully approach and recite this sin-destroying prayer to Shri Caitanya Mahaprabhu. One who does will fill the awakening of ecstatic loving devotion unto Lord Hari - of this there is no doubt! Even if one is afflicted with an incurable disease, one becomes freed from all danger of the ailment. Even if one has committed all types of offences, one becomes freed from their effects. If one chants this great prayer with faith and transcendental devotion on Lord Caitanya`s appearance day (Gaura-Purnima), then one perpetually attains the fulfillment of their each and every pure desire. If a devotee couple wishes to have a child but are unable, then they will obtain a child without a doubt. And at the time of death, they will attain remembrance of Shri Caitanya-deva and enter His eternal pastimes.
