Vaishnava Samhita - Aashudheera Charitam. Vol II Book V Chp 13 Shlokas 39 - 40
कृष्णो भक्तपराधीनः प्रेमभक्तिवशीकृतः
ददात्यात्मानमेवास्य किमन्यैः सुखसाधनैः

तमेव शरणं याति तत्कृपामेव याचते

Greatness of path of Bhakthi lays on fact that Lord is so pleased with the path of devotion than any other sadhanas.

I am aware of every effort – small or big that is being put forth towards Mahamantra kirtan and am deeply moved by your love for me and commitment towards Nama
I chant the Mahamantra always. I like to serve my Guru. I do serve Him mentally as I cannot go out any where. Will my service reach Him?
Bhakti is all about showing gratitude. A Guru shows us how to show our gratitude to the Lord. Showing gratitude to the Guru for showing us how to show gratitude to the Lord is Guru Bhakti.
In gratitude to the Grace bestowed on me by Bhagavaan I intensified my japa and dhyaana. But, I realized that here again Bhagavaan bestowed their 'phala' (fruits) on me!
