The importance of guru has always been stated first. After taking dīkṣā and śikṣā from a sad-guru, one must render intimate service to guru. Offer whatever you have gained to guru, because he will offer the same to Kṛṣṇa. Sādhu-saṅga must surely be there and the worship of Kṛṣṇa must definitely be observed. Hari-kathā must always be respected. These are some of the instructions of Prahlāda Mahārāja.
