Request: Kindly Save Me From Danger

I'm not able to chant properly. To tell You openly I have lost interest in chanting. I do not know why this kind of sudden aversion towards the holy name has developed within me. For the past 3 months or so, I have not chanted properly. Although I try hard to chant nicely I have not succeeded. I feel like some force is dragging me away from chanting, but I'm not able to figure it out what it is. Even for days together I have not touched my beads. I can feel that something bad is happening inside me.

Nowadays I'm watching television programs a lot. Before I never used to watch TV, but now most of the time I'm sitting in front of the TV. It seems I have become an addict of it.

I do not know how to solve my problems, hence I humbly seek your protection. Kindly save me from danger, Maharaja.

Thank You,

Yours servants' servant,
K.G.
India


Answer: Here's Your Prescription

Even if you have no interest or taste for chanting, you should chant anyway because this is the only way that you can be saved at the time of death from being forced to take birth again in this material existence. The good news is that if you will chant regularly on adaily basis as a matter of duty, even if you have no taste, the natural, sweet and original taste of the holy name will in due course of time become fully manifested within your consciousness. You should always remember to put your faith in the process of chanting and keep chanting even when you don't feel like it. By this simple and sublime chanting process you will gradually conquer over your materialistic mind and become solidly fixed in ecstatic Krishna consciousness. Just as you make sure that your body is well fed every day, you should be at least equally if not more sure to feed your actual self, the spirit-soul within by regularly chanting the Hare Krishna mahamantra.

So the formula to totally free yourself from your difficulties is very simple. Get rid of your television, and don't even touch a morsel of food until you have finished chanting your quota of rounds on the japa mala beads. If you will rise early and chant your rounds before sunrise, you will find that it is easy, sweet, and enjoyable to fully absorb your consciousness in deep daily meditation on the holy names of God.
