Radhanath Swami: It begins by regular chanting, like treatment begins with regular intake of medicines. And then we try to go deeper into the holy name by living according to the qualities of a true devotee, i.e. to live our life with humility, with tolerance and forgiveness, offering honor and respect to others, while demanding no respect for ourselves. We should live by the principles of morality, we should live with integrity, and we should live in the mood of servitude to others. Then the holy name will bring our consciousness deeper and deeper and deeper to understand our own spiritual essence and our relationship with God, the all beautiful.
When you actually experience the beauty of Krishna within your heart, it’s paraà dåñövä nivartate, it’s such a higher taste and experience that whatever happens in this world, you may deal with it, but nothing can take away that unlimited love, that unlimited satisfaction of your relationship with Krishna; and you just want to share it with everyone. That is the result of chanting properly.
