That is the false ego. And then the mind acts as the agent of the false ego. That is why the mind is so difficult to control — because it is the false ego’s agent to make sure we don’t surrender to Krishna. So we really need mercy. And we need association — the association of each other.”

Prahlada Maharaja prays, “I offer my respectful obeisances unto Lord Nrsimhadeva, the source of all power. O my Lord who possess nails and teeth just like thunderbolts, kindly vanquish our demonlike desires for fruitive activity in this material world. Please appear in our hearts and drive away our ignorance so that by Your mercy we may become fearless in the struggle for existence in this material world. . . . By associating with persons for whom the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Mukunda, is the all in all, one can hear of His powerful activities and soon come to understand them. The activities of Mukunda are so potent that simply by hearing of them one immediately associates with the Lord. For a person who constantly and very eagerly hears narrations of the Lord’s powerful activities, the Absolute Truth, the Personality of Godhead in the form of sound vibrations, enters within his heart and cleanses it of all contamination.” (Srimad-Bhagavatam 5.18.8, 11)
