(Kadamba Kanana Swami, 27 February 2013, Vrndavan, India, Caitanya Caritamrta Seminar 2)
Now look at ourselves, at our own miserable, miserly condition. We know everything – that which was unknown before, we know it. We know so much about it! Krsna prema, sure we can explain it to you. And we want it, oh yes, want some Krsna prema? Alright, chant Hare Krsna.
“Oh, do I have to? Really? Aaahhh, okay.’
And then, all that we offer are broken names.
We want love of God but we don’t want to pay the price! We want it for free. “Can I get it for free? Do I have to pay?”
You have to pay by chanting? It’s almost free, but chanting is required. So this chanting, it is the key!
