Devotional service unto Lord Kṛṣṇa is attained by charity (Dāna: donations given to Lord Viṣṇu and His devotees), strict vows (Vrata: observing vows such as Ekādaśī), austerities (Tapas: renunciation of sense gratification for Kṛṣṇa’s sake) and fire sacrifices (Homa: fire sacrifices dedicated to Viṣṇu), by japa (privately chanting the holy names of the Lord), study of Vedic texts (Svādhyāya: study and recitation of Vedic texts such as the Gopāla-tāpanī Upaniṣad), observance of regulative principles and, indeed, by the performance of many other auspicious practices.
