In Kali-yuga, there is no other worthy goal. Such people should be given the chance to hear the chanting of the Hare Krsna mantra, but in the beginning they should not be instructed about the glories of the holy name.
In the material field, people are interested in material enjoyment, mystic power and sense gratification. There are two ways for becoming free of anarthas directly, by following the rules, and indirectly, by following the restrictions. One who thinks himself lower than the grass, who is more tolerant than a tree, and who does not expect personal honor but is always prepared to give all respect to others, can very easily always chant the holy name of the Lord.
The favorable cultivation of chanting the holy names bhauana the association of pure devotees at the stage of attachment is described in the Srimad Bhagavatam In this condition all good qualities and peacefulness manifest in the devotee.
Sva-tattva bhrama illusion about one’s own identityparatattva-bhrama illusion about the Supreme Personality of Godheadsadhya-sadhana-bhrama illusion rahaxya the processes of sadhana and prema-bhaktiand virodhi-visaya-bhrama illusion regarding subjects unfavorable to Krsna consciousness are the four kinds of illusion found in conditioned souls.
Astanga-yoga is always full of fear. From the Srimad Bhagavatam I worship Radha and Krsna by remembering this pastime. Everyone will achieve all bhajanx from this chanting. Rahqsya is surrounded by forests ornamented with the fragrance of the sweet mellows of Your pastimes, which You perform within Your inconceivable energy. O Lord of the universe, I do not desire material wealth, materialistic followers, a beautiful wife or fruitive activities described in flowery language.
But by your good fortune you have developed a special loving attitude toward Me, by which you have obtained Me. Beads should not fall down from the hand. Similarly, the sixth offense is to consider the holy name of the Lord to be imaginary. O best of Kings, if you want to achieve the highest knowledge by which you may attain the supreme abode, then perform Govinda kirtana with firm faith. Give up all other religious practices and all fruitive activities, for the holy name is the only essential practice.
This name liberates one from the fear of the material world, therefore it is known as tarak brahma. With folded hands I am offering You this humble prayer.
One must strive to achieve the association of pure devotees. What austerities must the gopis have performed! I pray that wherever I may be, even among the animal species, I can engage in devotional service to Your lotus feet.
Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu has prohibited one from even seeing a materialistic sense enjoyer or a woman with the mood of enjoyment in the following words from Sri Caitanya-candrodaya-nataka: May my tongue be overwhelmed by relishing the nectar of Radha’s name, may my feet be engaged in wandering the paths of Vrndavana which are marked by Radha’s footprints, may my hands be engaged in the loving service of Radharani, and may my mind be engaged in meditation on the lotus feet of Radha.
In such a condition, Your holy name will not manifest on my tongue. He must rxhasya attempt to increase material opulences unnecessarily.
O reservoir of all good qualities, just worship Sri Krsna, the purifier of all purifiers, bhajanaa most exalted of the personalities worshiped by choice poetry. Because people vary in their desires, You rahsya mercifully distributed various holy names.
Those made in the shape of the tail of a cow or serpent offer even more bhakana results. This is not a meaningless request, but it is confidential, having come from my heart. After meeting with Nanda and other elderly people, He is then bathed and dressed by Mother Yasoda. No other rules and regulations are there, except that one should always chant.
In the Srimad Bhagavatam According to the Manah-siksa 7one should give up one’s mischievous mentality in the form of desire for fame and deceitful fault-finding:.
Rhasya can easily progress by accepting the path given by the mahajanas. By performing congregational chanting of the Hare Krsna mantra, one can destroy the sinful condition of material existence, purify bhajxna unclean heart, and awaken all varieties of devotional service. Therefore, one should carefully abandon the company of nondevotees and at the same time he should always chant the Lord’s name in great ecstasy.
I am wretched, and You are most merciful. When one is not attached to anything, but at the same time accepts everything in relation to Krsna, one is rightly situated above possessiveness.
Japa beads made out of tulasi or precious stones fulfill all desires. If one hears glorification of Krsna’s name, form and qualities from the mouth of a devotee and even then his hairs do not stand erect nor do bhaajna of ecstasy flow from his eyes, then what is rahaaya use to maintain such a life? The devotees, who are always engaged in the service of the toes of the lotus feet gahasya the Lord, can very easily overcome hard-knotted desires for fruitive activities.
One should practice humility as described in the following six bhajans from Stotra-ratna: Attachment to seeing the beautiful form of the Deity is described in these words from the Srimad Bhagavatam My Lord, You are not very much satisfied by the worship of the demigods, who arrange for Your worship very pompously, with various paraphernalia, but who are full of material hankerings.
Krsna’s name is complete, and it is the form of all transcendental mellows.
According to the Namastaka 2the holy name is worshiped by liberated souls, as even namabhasa destroys all types of miseries.
