One new devotee was saying that when I hear Shrila Prabhupada Chanting on tape, I can hear very deep focus but when I chant I can’t focus. So instead of chanting on beads What if we just hear Shrila Prabhupada chanting?
I remember story given by Shrila Bhakti Siddhanta Sarasvati Goswami Maharaja.
By chance a person slipped and fell into a deep well and could not get out in spite of all his efforts; therefore he began shouting for help.
Being merciful, a very kind-hearted passer-by brought a piece of long rope which was lowered down in the well so that the man could get out by grabbing the rope. The passer-by asked the man to catch hold of the rope and try to climb up so that he could pull him up.
In response, the person started shouting, O my friend, please help me so that I can put my fingers around the rope.
Shrila Prabhupada gave us everything now the only thing we have to do is chant attentively but if we don’t do that also then what to say? …Hare Krishna.
