Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 1.2.18
bhaktir bhavati naiṣṭhikī
By regular attendance in classes on the Bhāgavatam and by rendering of service to the pure devotee, all that is troublesome to the heart is almost completely destroyed, and loving service unto the Personality of Godhead, who is praised with transcendental songs, is established as an irrevocable fact.
Here is the remedy for eliminating all inauspicious things within the heart which are considered to be obstacles in the path of self-realization. The remedy is the association of the Bhāgavatas. There are two types of Bhāgavatas, namely the book Bhāgavata and the devotee Bhāgavata. Both the Bhāgavatas are competent remedies, and both of them or either of them can be good enough to eliminate the obstacles. A devotee Bhāgavata is as good as the book Bhāgavata because the devotee Bhāgavata leads his life in terms of the book Bhāgavata and the book Bhāgavata is full of information about the Personality of Godhead and His pure devotees, who are also Bhāgavatas. Bhāgavata book and person are identical.
The devotee Bhāgavata is a direct representative of Bhagavān, the Personality of Godhead. So by pleasing the devotee Bhāgavata one can receive the benefit of the book Bhāgavata. Human reason fails to understand how by serving the devotee Bhāgavata or the book Bhāgavata one gets gradual promotion on the path of devotion. But actually these are facts explained by Śrīla Nāradadeva, who happened to be a maidservant's son in his previous life. The maidservant was engaged in the menial service of the sages, and thus he also came into contact with them. And simply by associating with them and accepting the remnants of foodstuff left by the sages, the son of the maidservant got the chance to become the great devotee and personality Śrīla Nāradadeva. These are the miraculous effects of the association of Bhāgavatas. And to understand these effects practically, it should be noted that by such sincere association of the Bhāgavatas one is sure to receive transcendental knowledge very easily, with the result that he becomes fixed in the devotional service of the Lord. The more progress is made in devotional service under the guidance of the Bhāgavatas, the more one becomes fixed in the transcendental loving service of the Lord. The messages of the book Bhāgavata, therefore, have to be received from the devotee Bhāgavata, and the combination of these two Bhāgavatas will help the neophyte devotee to make progress on and on.
Hare Krishna Bhanu prabhuji . thank you very much devotees like you can solve my problems . thank you very much for your comment.
Dont worry just keep on chanting krishna will always help you engage yourself in krishna service and ask him to help you he is so merciful he will help you.
try to make plans to serve to others.
Try to share some of Your valuable things with others.
And if chanting brings peace then do it always.
If you have really understood the Gita and implemented it in your life, then there is no way that you are dragged into the material illusion. Because the knowledge is so strong. You may not get enough time for chanting. But if you truly follow what the Lord said in Gita, then you will be freed from the material bondage. This is guaranteed.
So, chant the mahamantra while you can. And during the remaining time, apply the principles of Gita to your life.
I am sure, by God's grace, you will come out of the material bondage in due course.
first tell me what you mean? one step further? like stopping a bad habbit?
Usually when we try to go a step further. I asked just for a more....focused answer. But say I have a bad habit. When I try with all my will and might to stop it, it sometimes gets stronger. And also when we are attached to something, whenever we stop it there is a withdrawal process. Craving and longing, when we learn to sit with that feeling it subsides. Simply starting something new usually causes fear or if not successful causes lamentation. But that is set up by your own ideals, your mind. If at this point something is hard to do and you "fail" at it, just keep trying. I am curious as to what is binding you? Don't let your ideals set you up for disappointment, just let them be something to push you further. Do not be upset with yourself, no matter what you have to forgive yourself. God has already done that. Simply shining a light on that which you do not like will make you notice it whenever it takes place. And with faith in the process it will slowly dissipate. Do not force, just recognize. hopefully i was of some help. I meditate personally. But the chanting quiets the mind as well. This is my opinion.
