1. Simple method to purify yourself

    Simple method: simply try to purify yourself by this transcendental vibration, Hare Krsna, Hare Krsna, Krsna Krsna, Hare… Try to chant always: kirtaniyah sada [Siksastaka 3]. This is the beginning of spiritual life, and this is the end of spiritual life. Not that at the end we shall have to give it up. No — the same method. It is so perfect that it is in the beginning perfect, and at the end it is also perfect. It is not that… There are so many means that you accept something in the beginning, but when you are perfect you give it up. Just like the Mayavadi philosophy, there… Just like the yoga system. When you are not perfect, you accept this yoga system of asana, astanga-yoga system; pranayama, the sitting process, controlling the breathing exercise. But when you become perfect, you need not. You give up. But this process, chanting process, is so perfect that in the beginning of the chanting and when you are completely perfect you are transferred in the spiritual sky, there also the same process will go on — chanting. Hare Krsna!
