That is what Prabhupada explained in his purports, that we perform our duties in this world, we take the mantra which has been given to us, we chant that mantra, obtaining the association of the Lord, and then after performing our duties in this world perfectly in Krsna consciousness, we go back to Godhead. It's how we are supposed to live in this world. It's not that we are all just going to chant and wait for the Lord to appear to deliver us. No. We must understand how to perform our duties in this world, especially those duties which have been entrusted to us and take the mantra which has been given to us.
