Everyone can become a pure devotee to chanting the holy name. (Sanskrit) “Oh my Lord out of kindness you’ve invested all your transcendental energies on these names”. Then of course there is that line: “But, I am so unfortunate that I have no attraction for them”. So that is maybe our situation.
On the one hand, the holy name can bring us all perfection without a doubt. It’s very hard to spoil it. It’s very difficult to spoil the chanting of the holy name. Only if one consciously starts to act sinful and ignore – that by thinking that chanting will make it up. Than one can chant for millions of lifetimes and not make any advancement. (Sanskrit) One can chant for millions of lifetimes and never get love of God if one makes such offences. But anybody who is trying to avoid them – success guaranteed!
