Chanting for ulterior motives

    Posted on August 31, 2015

[Srila Prabhupada said:]

We should not chant for ulterior motives such as mundane peace. We should ask only for Krishna's causeless devotional service birth after birth.

(From "THe Hare Krishna Explosion" by Hayagrive Prabhu; Chapter 3: Who Is Crazy?)

The poet Allen Ginsberg praised Srila Prabhupada thus:
Krsna comes, feeling pain for us
The Lord's form
Why Krsna is called Paramesvara
All-knowing, all-powerful Krsna
Devotees who go away
Temporary relief work: a misleading deviation from our real duty
Srila Prabhupada came to give culture, including dress style
Akrura sees Krsna and Balarama
Read Brahma Samhita very carefully
Vedic religion means varnasrama-dharma
We cannot live under a tree as did Srila Rupa Gosvami
Following in the footsteps of Srila Rupa Gosvami
If sincere, a "bad" devotee is not bad
Purely chanting
