Vachanamrut Gadhada I - 24: “ [Such a devotee feels,] ‘I am extremely fortunate and completely fulfilled, whereas others in the world are constantly being troubled by lust, anger, avarice, infatuation, arrogance, matsar, desires and cravings. They are subject to the three types of sufferings day and night. As for me, the incarnate form of Purushottam has compassionately revealed his own form to me. He has also freed me from lust, anger, and all of the other vicious natures. He has also placed me in the company of sadhus similar to Naran and the Sanakadik. Indeed I am very fortunate.”
