Teachings of Prahlad Maharaj

How to make Krishna Consciousness interesting? How to make it attractive and relevant for everyone is what Prahlad Maharaj is showing us, "Look! don't waste your life!" Ultimately if we don't realize who we are and who is Krishna? What is the use of this human form of life?

Chanting Hare Krishna

In rice paddy filed sometimes the bird comes to eat the rice if we clap the hands, the birds fly away so when you clap your hands and chant Hare Krishna, our sins fly away like the birds. When we chant Hari, Krishna will take away the garbage.

Chanting The Holy Names

In other types of yoga processes one does all types of austerity, meditation and penances and finally at the end one gets the samadhi like when we are going through the meal like in Bengal system we eat the bitter first and the sweet is the last like the samadhi- the ecstacy. However Srila Prabhupada said Lord Caitanya is so merciful that He gives us the dessert first like the kids would like to have the apple pie or ice-cream first, then deal with the spinach some other time, if at all. Similarly Lord Caitanya gives us the taste first-the nectar, so that way we already get little taste of bliss then gets us into the main course which is the whole process of bhakti yoga. When we are chanting the holy name by the mercy of the Lord the bliss awakens in our heart.

Devotees

A devotee should live according to the situation that, he is put in, they have to live, some may be in a wealthy situation, some may be in poverty, some may be in middle, whatever situation we may be, we should be very responsible to be Krishna conscious. Krishna doesn't recognize us because we are poor or rich. He recognises us how we are engaging in Krishna's service.
