I am ever living to help and guide all who come to me, who surrender to me and who seek refuge in me. If you look to me I look to you. If you cast your burden on me , I shall surely bear it. If you seek my advice and help, it will be given at once.
There shall be no want in the house of my devotee. Know that my soul is immortal. My eye is ever on those who love me. I stay by his side always. In whatever faith one worships me, even so I render to them.
If one perpetually thinks of me, and makes me his sole refuge, I become his debtor and will give my life to save him. I am the bond slave of my devotee. He who withdraws his heart from the world and loves me is my true lover and he merges in Me like a river in the sea. Look up to me and I will look after you. Not vain is my promise that I shall ever lighten your burden. Though I be no more in flesh and blood, I shall ever protect my devotees. I shall be with you the moment you think of me.
