(Kadamba Kanana Swami, 15 July 2009, Japa Talks)

In many years of chanting, not every day was an optimal one. I have chanted when I was tired, when I was ill and injured; I have chanted in cars, planes and boats. Once I also chanted on a horse racing track! The quality of my rounds has varied due to my own physical condition and the external circumstances and to the state of my consciousness. But the Holy Name has stayed as an integral part of my life, the Holy Name is like a friend – always there, soothing my mind, creating stability in the turbulence of life in the material world, making me detached from the ongoing affairs by making me remember the eternal perspective that what really matters is my service to Krsna
