If one obtains and relishes the nectar of the Lord’s feet, the charan-amrita, the mind can be conquered. This means that the mind will no longer hold sway over us; its mastery imposed on us from childhood will no longer oppress us. But how can such a state be attained? Only if one totally accepts the knowledge ‘I am’ as oneself with full conviction and faith and firmly believes in the dictum I am that by I know ‘I am’. This knowledge ‘I am’ is the charan-amrita. Why is it called amrita - the nectar? Because by drinking nectar, one becomes immortal. Thus, a true devotee, by abiding in the knowledge ‘I am’ transcends the experience of death and attains immortality.
