Japa Seminar: Symptoms of Inattention

  • Indifference to chanting. This will lead to indifference to devotees and consequently indifference to Krishna.
  • Boredom of routine. Variety is the mother of enjoyment. Hence seeking variety is simply sense gratification.
  • After initial 4-5 years of enthusiasm devotees lose interest to chant because there is no determination. Srila Prabhupada says that without determination we are like animals.
When we fall down from our regular 16 rounds routine of chanting we should repent for it.

Srila Prabhupada says 'Repentance should lead to increase in devotional service.' "If you are fallen, get up and fight'

'The secret of Japa is STRUGGLE, STRUGGLE and STRUGGLE!'. Jaya Srila Prabhupada!!!
