Question to Radhanath Swami: How exactly does this chanting of God’s holy names work?
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.
Question to Radhanath Swami : If God is omnipresent, why worship a Deity?
Radhanath Swami : If God is omnipresent is he not in the Deity too? Be honest and realistic, not to me, but to yourself. Are you able to fix your mind in love and devotion on God present everywhere and in everything? Difficult, isn’t it?
Question to Radhanath Swami : During meditation, the mind wanders here and there. What to do?
Radhanath Swami : Krishna explains in Gita, “From wherever the mind wanders due to its flickering and unsteady nature, one must certainly withdraw it and bring it back under the control of the self.”. The mind is a small child. The nature of small children is to get into trouble.
