Saranagati should be practiced in thought, word, and deed –

“By his power of speech, the surrendered soul declares, ‘I am Yours’; in his thoughts, he knows the same; and in person, he takes refuge in the Lord’s holy abode. In this way the surrendered soul passes his life, his heart filled with joy.”
“[ Vaisnava-tantra]

“Six divisions of surrender –

“Acceptance of the favorable, rejection of the unfavorable, the faith that ‘He will surely protect me,’ embracing the Lord’s guardianship, complete dependence on Him, and the perception of one’s utter helplessness without Him – these six are the essential limbs of exclusive surrender to the Lord (saranagati).”

The souls surrendered unto the lotus feet of Sri Caitanyadeva bathe in the ocean of divine love –

The matchless, unsurpassable gift of surrender unto the lotus feet of Lord Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, the Golden Avatara who enacts His pastimes as a great devotee –

“”O guardian of the surrendered, O great personality (the Supreme Personality of Godhead Himself, who enacts His divine pastimes as a pure devotee [maha-bhagavata]), You alone are the reality to be constantly meditated upon by the pure souls. You are the destroyer of the soul’s illusion, You are the divine wish-fulfilling tree, the refuge of all devotees. Worshippable by Siva and Virinci (Sadasiva in the form of Sri Advaita Acarya, and Brahma in the form of Haridasa Thakura), You are the shelter of all and everything, and You are the dispeller of Your devotee’s suffering which originates in offenses to the holy name (nama-aparadha). You are the only boat for crossing the ocean of this material world of suffering. I do worship Your holy lotus feet.””[ Bhagavatam, 11.5.33]

The recipients of the Lord’s mercy are transcendental to Vedic religiosity –

“Because of the intense love of His surrendered soul, the Supreme Lord bestows His grace upon that devotee by ushering divine inspiration into his heart. Such a devotee then abandons the preoccupation with adhering to worldly obligations and Vedic religiosity.”[Bhagavatam, 4.29.45]

[from Srila Bhakti Rakshak Sridhar, Sri Prapanna Jivanamritam 2.28]
