Shikshapatri Shlock 52


All my followers shall wake up early in the morning before sun rise; meditate Lord Krishna for a while; attend to the call of nature and brush the teeth sitting in a clean place, take bath with clean water; put on two washed clean clothes. Then sitting on a separate mat spread on a cleanly sanctified floor, facing the east or the north. They shall perform Achaman (sipping a few drops of water thrice. This is a purifying act and shall be performed at the beginning of every religious ceremony.) Then the males shall make 'U' shaped mark on the forehead (as stated before) with a round dot in it. And women with their husbands alive, shall make red dot on the forehead with Kumkum (red powder). A widow shall make neither 'U' mark nor red dot (with Kumkum) on her forehead. Then all males or females shall offer mental worship to Shree Krishna. They shall bow down with devotion before the idol or the picture of Radha-Krishna; and chant the Krishna Mantra as far as their time allow. Then they may go to attend to their secular duties.

અને પછી સત્‍સંગી પુરુષમાત્રને ચાંદલો સહીત ઉધર્વપુંડ્ર તિલક કરવું, અને સુવાસિની જે સ્‍ત્રીઓ તેમણે તો પોતાના ભાલને વિષે કુંકુમનો ચાંદલો કરવો.
