    In material existence one is subjected
    to the influence of the mind and the senses.
    In fact, the pure soul is entangled in the material world
    because the mind is involved with the false ego,
    which desires to lord it over material nature.
    Therefore, the mind should be trained so that
    it will not be attracted by the glitter of material nature,
    and in this way the conditioned soul may be saved.
    One should not degrade oneself by attraction to sense objects.
    The more one is attracted by sense objects,
    the more one becomes entangled in material existence.
    The best way to disentangle oneself is to
    always engage the mind in Krsna consciousness.

    The material body consists of the senses, and consequently
    the body`s activities are sensual activities.
    However, above the senses is the mind,
    and above the mind is the intelligence,
    and above the intelligence is the spirit soul.
    If one is on the spiritual platform, one`s intelligence,
    mind and senses are all spiritualized.
    The purpose of the Krsna consciousness process is to actualize
    the spiritualization of the senses, mind, and intelligence.
    The spirit soul is superior to all, but because the soul is sleeping,
    the soul has given power of attorney to the fickle mind.
    However, when the soul is awakened, the soul is once again master,
    and the servile mind cannot act improperly.
    Once we are awakened in Krsna consciousness,
    the intelligence, mind and and senses cannot act nonsensically.
    They must act in accordance with the dictations of the spirit soul.
    That is spiritualization and purification.

    Without Krsna consciousness, one must be always
    seeking self-centered or extended selfish activities.
    But a Krsna conscious person can do everything
    for the satisfaction of Krsna and thereby
    be perfectly detached from sense-gratification.

CHANTING THE HOLY NAME OF LORD KRISHNA. Part 3.

Mantra: "man" means "mind" and "tra" means "to deliver".Thus a mantra is a transcendental sound vibration with potency to liberate the mind from material conditioning."Hare" is the vocative case (addressing form) of "Hari". This is another name for Krsna. Also, another name for Srimati Radharani is Hara, and "Hare" is again the vocative case of this name. Thus, "Hare" refers either to Lord Hari or to Srimati Radharani.

CHANTING THE HOLY NAME OF LORD KRISHNA. Part 2.

'eka' kṛṣṇa-nāme kare sarva-pāpa nāśapremera kāraṇa bhakti karena prakāśaSimply chanting the Hare Kṛṣṇa mahā-mantra without offenses vanquishes all sinful activities. Thus pure devotional service, which is the cause of love of Godhead, becomes manifest. (CC- 1:8:26).One cannot be situated in the devotional service of the Lord unless one is free from sinful life. This is confirmed in the Bhagavad-gītā (7:28):yeṣāḿ tv anta-gataḿ pāpaḿ janānāḿ puṇya-karmanāmte dvandva-moha-nirmuktā bhajante māḿ…
