Unless one is
completely disappointed in every relationship of love, friendship and
society, it is impossible to be completely surrendered to the will of
the Lord, without which it is impossible to chant His HOLY NAME, and
without actually chanting the Holy Name purely, it is impossible to
preach Krishna consciousness, which depends primarily on the
offenceless chanting of the Holy Name. One who does not have the Name
certainly cannot initiate others into the chanting of the Holy Name.
In the name of
religion, people are hopelessly lost in rituals and ceremonies.
Chanting the Holy Name is all that is necessary. Other things will come
as a natural consequence.
The prayer to
Krishna and the answer to the prayer are the same. As soon as one
sincerely prays to Krishna, that act of sincerely approaching Krishna
is the answer.
