One can be free from all sinful reactions after reaching a place of pilgrimage, but one can have the same benefit at home or at any place simply by chanting the holy name of the Lord.
Srimad Bhagavatam 2.7.15,
We come to Vrindavan not to enjoy a vacation, but we come here to serve. We come here to surrender and to get purified by chanting and performing any type of seva in the association of devotees.
Victory is always with the Supreme Personality of Godhead.
Srimad Bhagavatam 6.12.7,
We have no freedom not to serve Krishna; we have choice.
Chanting Hare Krishna With Mridangas and Kartals…. this is also Kirtan; when you Distribute books, that is also Kirtana.
The Lord has provided food for both the elephant and the ant. All living beings are living at the cost of the supreme Lord.
Whenever I ger report of my books selling, I feel strength. Regarding book sales figures, please endeavor in this way. This is the only solace of my life. When I hear that my books are selling so nicely, I become energetic like a young man. – Srila Prabhupada, Sep 1974.
The ultimate goal of Bhakti is to get Krishna and we get it by taking shelter of the holy name.
