06 By chanting, one develops forbearance
By chanting the Hare Krsna mantra, the quality of forbearance automatically develops:
A devotee engaged in chanting the holy name of the Lord should practice forbearance like that of a tree. Even if rebuked or chastised, he should not say anything to others to retaliate.For even if one cuts a tree, it never protests, nor even if it is drying up and dying does it ask anyone for water.
This practice of forbearance (trnad api sunicena) is very difficult, but when one actually engages in chanting the Hare Krsna mantra, the quality of forbearance automatically develops. A person advanced in spiritual consciousness through the chanting of the Hare Krsna mantra need not practice to develop it separately, for a devotee develops all good qualities simply by chanting the Hare Krsna mantra regularly.
