"The devotee should make it a regular practice to spend a little time alone in a quiet place and concentrate deeply on the Holy Name. He should utter and hear the name distinctly. It is impossible for the jiva to singlehandedly avoid and overcome the illusion of distraction. By the mercy of the Lord, however, this is accomplished with ease. Therefore it is essential to prayerfully beg for the Lord's grace with great humility, for this is the only means to salvation from this offense."
This is an interesting quote I was reading the other day...it tells us that we should make the effort to overcome distraction but also pray to Krsna to help us with that...alone we cannot overcome offenses to the Holy Name but with our own effort and the mercy of Krsna through prayer...this is possible.
