Quotes Of The Day

Niranjana Swami
May 1, 2001, Moscow, “Our progress in life is gauged by our chanting”

Certainly, in these first stages in chanting the Holy Name, we have to listen, listen, listen. Prabhupāda says it is very, very important – just listen to the Holy Name. By attentive listening to the Holy Name, the mind is supposed to gradually become controlled and cleared, and when the mind is actually controlled and cleared, then what begins to manifest is a particular form of one’s worshipable Lord. That form may not always be manifested in the mind, but it begins to manifest in a clear mind. Or we may meditate on a particular form of the Deity. We may meditate on Dayal-Nitāi--Śacī-Suta, and meditate on Their form. Or we can chant in front of the Deity and look at Their form.

Srila Prabhupada
Letter to Hamsaduta, June 21, 1968

I think Krishna is giving you the required intelligence how to spread our transcendental movement. This is the right way, as you have adopted. To chant Hare Krishna, very nicely, with musical instruments and mrdanga, speak the philosophy of Bhagavad-gita, and sell our literatures like books and magazines. That process will make our mission successful. Please try to do it very nicely.
