We cannot realize the presence of Krishna while chanting the holy names, only because our chanting is not at the level of ‘shuddha nama’ i.e. offense less chanting.
The Krishna consciousness movement is therefore distributing sublime information to the entire human society to the effect that by simply chanting the Hare Krishna mantra one can become perfect in this life and go back home, back to Godhead.
Bhagavad Gita 9.25,
Lord Krishna's beauty is unequaled and unsurpassed.
Sri Chaitanya Caritamrta,
Madhya Lila, 9.144
All expressions of love in this world are a manifestation’s of the soul’s need to find and express Divine Love.
This is why things do not satisfy us.
The purpose of going to a place of pilgrimage is to get the chance to glorify the Lord.
Srimad Bhagavatam 3.1.45,
The Lord’s gentleness, His smile, His character and everything related to Him are all transcendental.
Srimad Bhagavatam 3.3.20,
The Supreme Lord is eternal, perennially young, and so are His immortal words: they are ever-fresh.
Religion is the science of the soul, the science of consciousness, the science which reveals to us who we are, what is our nature, who is God and our relationship with Him.
