The short cut way

So to make our life perfect is not at all difficult. We are simply neglecting. That is our misfortune. Mandah sumanda-matayo manda-bhagyah [SB 1.1.10]. Because we are manda, manda-matah, we have accept some bogus logic, bogus "ism," and wasting our time. We should take from the sastra the real path. Then we shall become intelligent. Su-medhasah. Yajnaih sankirtana-prayair yajanti hi su-medhasah [SB 11.5.32]. The short-cut...

To understand Krishna, Chant Hare Krishna

Unless one is advanced in krsna-prema, love of Krsna, he cannot see or understand. By the blunt material senses, we cannot even understand the name of Krsna. People are always asking, "Why are these people chanting Hare Krsna?" They cannot understand, although Krsna realization begins with the name. The name of Krsna and Krsna are nondifferent, but we cannot realize this intellectually. Krsna is within the heart, and the...

We are saying ‘just chant’

Srila Prabhupada :   The simplest method is to associate with the Father, or the Absolute Truth. By association. This association can be possible. God, His name, His form, His pastimes, His abode, His paraphernalia, everything is God, because absolute. First of all you should understand this Absolute Truth.

The Mind is Like a Loud Truck

While I was chanting the other day, a truck drove by that was so loud that I couldn’t even hear myself chant. As it got further away I could again hear the mantra coming out of my mouth. As this was happening I immediately thought that the truck is exactly like the mind. Sometimes the mind is so loud that I can’t even hear myself chant. It just takes over and the maha mantra gets drowned out by the volume of my mind. When...
