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.

This is called the "single idea" principle of the mind. For example, if one is reading...
