"One should worship dhātrī trees, banyan trees, cows, brāhmaṇas and devotees of Lord Viṣṇu. One should avoid offenses against devotional service and the holy name.


There are ten items in the beginning of devotional service, up to the point of worshiping the dhātrī tree, banyan tree, cow, brāhmaṇa and devotee of Lord Viṣṇu. The eleventh item is to avoid offenses when rendering devotional service and chanting the holy names.
