āpannaḥ saḿsṛtiḿ ghorāḿyan-nāma vivaśo gṛṇantataḥ sadyo vimucyetayad bibheti svayaḿ bhayamLiving beings who are entangled in the complicated meshes of birth and death can be freed immediately by even unconsciously chanting the holy name ofKṛṣṇa, which is feared by fear personified. (S.B.1:1:14).sa vai puḿsāḿ paro dharmoyato bhaktir adhokṣajeahaituky apratihatāyayātmā suprasīdatiThe supreme occupation (dharma) for all humanity is that by which men can attain to loving devotional service unto the transcendent Lord. Such devotional service must be unmotivated and uninterrupted to completely satisfy the self.(S.B.1:2:6).vāsudeve bhagavatibhakti-yogaḥ prayojitaḥjanayaty āśu vairāgyaḿjñānaḿ ca yad ahaitukamBy rendering devotional service unto the Personality of Godhead, Śrī Kṛṣṇa, one immediately acquires causeless knowledge and detachment from the world. (S.B.1:2:7).tadā rajas-tamo-bhāvāḥkāma-lobhādayaś ca yeceta etair anāviddhaḿsthitaḿ sattve prasīdatiAs soon as irrevocable loving service is established in the heart, the effects of nature's modes of passion and ignorance, such as lust, desire and hankering, disappear from the heart. Then the devotee is established in goodness, and he becomes completely happy. S.B.1:2:19).ato vai kavayo nityaḿbhaktiḿ paramayā mudāvāsudeve bhagavatikurvanty ātma-prasādanīmCertainly, therefore, since time immemorial, all transcendentalists have been rendering devotional service to Lord Kṛṣṇa, the Personality of Godhead, with great delight, because such devotional service is enlivening to the self. (S.B.1:2:22).
