Will charging money to do Sankirtana benefit anyone reach Krishna Prema?
Will buying your way to hear the Holy Names of Krishna do good or bad to your spiritual life?
Once money is charged, even though they sound like Krishna's Names, are they really?
Caitanya Mahaprabhu said, Nam Akshar Nam Nahi
Is that not offensive chanting?
Mahaprabhu said, you can chant offensively for a million years and you wont get Krishna Prema.
Has anyone benefited from going to Sadhu Sangha? I am not talking about whether you got a warm feeling inside or smashan viragya, the renunciation you get when you go to a funeral and forget it once you are back home.
Has your devotion to Krishna increased or decreased? Are you doing more rounds or less?
Are you chanting on the beads with more attention or less attention? I personally see that those who went to Sadhu Sangha, though excited (just in speech and continue to talk about the event that way), noticed they are really demotivated to do actual devotional service or less inclined before they went to the event.
What is your experience? Only in terms of results, of course. Are you doing more seva? Less aparadh? Please share as honestly as possible.
