Periyavachanpillai beautifully says, "Kaval il pulanai vaithu", "il" - Kaval il. Let this pulanghazh run as they wish, don't bother. Let the mind run hither and thither, dont worry. Keep on performing namakeerthanam! Someone says, sir, my mind is not getting controlled. Yes, the mind will not. But you still do namakeerthanam. As you chant namakeerthanam more and more, all your sins will start to decrease rapidly and then automatically the mind will come to control. Kaval il pulanai vaithu - If at all you have the intelligence to be able to control the mind and perform namakeerthanam, the fruit will be got in an instant. Let the "pulanghazh" go on their own ways, you are unable to control them, due to its habit over the years it keeps running on its own but for this reason don't say you wont perform bhagavath bhakthi. Let the "pulanghazh" run as they used to, but you perform namakeerthanam and they will subside..
Likewise, just keep the desire that the bhagavan should come to you, that's enough. The yogyatha will come automatically from the bhagavan to you. The desire should not be an act or a drama it should be truthful. Keep on saying, "Ranganatha, please come to my heart, again and again keep calling!". Bhagavan will come to the pure heart. The bhagavan knowing the devotee's desire wants to take a place at the heart of the devotee but he knows that if the devotee's chittam is not clean, how can he go and occupy the place. So the devotee is throbbing with the desire in his heart and its genuine so Lord Ranganathar himself gives chitta suddhi, Jnanam, Bhakthi, Vairagyam and then will come and occupy the place in his heart.
