1. By chanting, hearing, directly contact Krsna

    You can get the same benefit by chanting Krsna's name as you get personally talking with Krsna.

    [Srila Prabhupada; Lecture, Bhagavad-gita As It Is 7.1, Uppsala University, 8 September, 1973]


    By hearing the narration of the pastimes of the Lord, one contacts directly the Personality of Godhead.

    [Srila Prabhupada; Srimad-Bhagavatam 1.5.26, purport]
