(Kadamba Kanana Swami, 29 September 2013, Melbourne, Australia, Srimad Bhagavatam 2.2.36)
A home has to be a place which reminds us of Krsna. It has to be a place that is pure. There cannot be any degrading influences in a home – that is not very good. The home situation should be nourishing, it should be giving us spiritual strength and not draining us. There is enough draining association as soon as we step out of the door. So, we should not let it into our home, somehow or other. Not via the internet! “Not via the machines,” as Srila Prabhupada said. So like that, we situate ourselves within a positive environment and that is where we build our strength, that is where we chant, that is where we hear, that is where we worship our deities and that is where we offer everything to Krsna.
In a home situation where everything is strong and sustainable then we can have great strength. We have to build this up this environment as much as possible. The centre of all that is our chanting of the holy name of the Lord and then hearing and remembering automatically comes.
