    Pranam My Dearest Dr. Rahul Sharma Prabhu. Hare Krishna.
    May you be blessed with the shelter of the God of Gods,
    the Absolute Truth and the Primeval cause of all the causes
    of the creation, sustenance and destruction of the manifested
    universes, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Lord Krishna,
    Who is the Original seed of all existences, the Intelligence  of
    the intelligent,  the Prowess  of all powerful people, the Strength
    of  the strong devoid of  passion and ignorance.  In Krishna
    consciousness, hearing and chanting are emphasized very much.
    You have heard a lot about chanting. So why is hearing from
    authority stressed so much ? Through hearing, you begin bhakti.
    From being in  bondage, you become a seeker. Through hearing,
    you carry out your spiritual practices. Through hearing, the nine
    processes of bhakti are understood. Through hearing, bad habits
    and bad manners are changed. Through hearing, you rid yourself
    of bad company.  Through hearing, your thinking becomes clear.
    As you have to eat again and again in your daily life, so also you
    engage in hearing again and again. Through hearing, your intellect
    becomes firm. Through hearing, you will begin to reflect on your
    life, and you will attain inner contentment. Through hearing,
    detachment arises within you. Through hearing, attachment to
    sensual  pleasures are cut.  Through hearing,  pride is broken. 
    Through hearing, the sense of  "I" and  "mine" is broken. Through
    hearing,  your  doubts  are  cleared. Through  hearing,  your
    misunderstanding is dispelled. Through hearing, one gains conviction.
    Through hearing, your mind becomes controlled. Through hearing,
    you  become  aware  that  you are  more  than  this  material body.
    Through hearing, your understanding increases. Through hearing,
    your intelligence becomes developed. Through hearing, you become
    strong to turn away from worldly entanglements. Through hearing,
    your fascination with material objects are no more. Through hearing,
    you become strong in knowledge. Through hearing, you will be free
    from the miseries of material existence. Through hearing, there will
    arise in you a weariness with material pursuits. Though hearing,
    you become inspired and you become committed to regular spiritual
    practises. Through hearing, you attain peace. With love and best
    wishes, take care, bye.        
  • Further to our discussion on the topic, please find the follow excerpt from the Srimad Bhagavatam

    PURPORT: Since the creation of the material world, there have been two kinds of men--the devas and the asuras. The devas are always faithful to the Supreme Personality of Godhead, whereas the asuras are always atheists who defy the supremacy of the Lord. At the present moment, throughout the entire world, the atheists are extremely numerous. They are trying to prove that there is no God and that everything takes place due to combinations and permutations of material elements. Thus the material world is becoming more and more godless, and consequently everything is in a disturbed condition. If this continues, the Supreme personality of Godhead will certainly take action, as He did in the case of Hiranyakasipu. Within a second, Hiranyakasipu and his followers were destroyed, and similarly if this godless civilization continues, it will be destroyed in a second, simply by the movement of one finger of the Supreme Personality of Godhead. The demons should therefore be careful and curtail their godless civilization. They should take advantage of the Krsna consciousness movement and become faithful to the Supreme Personality of Godhead; otherwise they are doomed. As Hiranyakasipu was killed in a second, the godless civilization can be destroyed at any moment.

    [Srimad-Bhagavatam 7.8.31]
