The significant aspect of a haridasu is that he never stops to ask for alms or charity. In fact, he does not speak at all, only sings eulogies of the lord. In the rural areas, people respectfully wash his feet, pay their obeisance and seek his blessings. He bends down to allow access to the Akshaya Patra on his head in which people put rice or money. As long as they are in this avatar, they eat only once a day in the night.
