(Kadamba Kanana Swami, 7 January 2017, Brisbane, Australia, House Program Lecture)
Kadamba Kanana Swami: What happens when you chant Hare Krsna? There is a change if you chant Hare Krsna. You look at me, everyone looking? Okay, look now, “Hare Krsna!” Did you see any change?
Kadamba Kanana Swami: Okay, what did you see?
Devotees: “Happy!” “Lots of energy!” “Enthusiasm!” “Blissful!” “Positivity!” “You made us all chant!”
Kadamba Kanana Swami: No, you got it all wrong, sorry. No, what really happened is that the subtle body has changed. Yes I may smile, but I don’t always smile when I chant Hare Krsna. But the subtle body has changed! And if we keep on chanting, then the subtle body will change very fast! And if we keep on chanting, we don’t have to wait until the next life to change, because already we have now changed. Hare Krsna, Hare Krsna, Krsna Krsna, Hare Hare, Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare. The subtle body is changing and becoming purified. And just like that, we lose all that contamination from past births which gave us a low birth, a compromised birth.
