Aatish: Hare Krishna Maharaja, you were saying about excuses that different people come up with to why they can’t do their sixteen rounds and I was just wondering if there are any valid excuses for not doing sixteen rounds?

Kadamba Kanana Swami:
No! When you are in a coma it gets a little difficult, like that…..if you really can’t move your tongue then maybe. But even disease is not a good excuse, one should still try to chant sixteen rounds. Can’t say:
‘Oh I’ve got a sniffle so I can’t chant today’ No

Aatish:So apart from diseases and comas is it just insincerity that is the reason why they don’t do their sixteen rounds, is it just their conditioning?

Kadamba Kanana Swami:
Yeah, sincerity, illusion, yeah, forgetting the importance, just forgetting the importance, forgetting how much we depend on………Thinking that happinesss is somewhere else than Krishna, that’s it. Some doubts sets in. Chanting- still unhappy?:
‘Maybe there is something else after all’
There you go; ‘it looks good’
Illusion, maya
