The 10 Offenses Pt.8


To consider the chanting of the Hare Krsna maha-mantra to be one of the auspicious ritualistic mantras mentioned in the Vedas as fruitive activity.

  • Karma-kanda: performing religious ceremonies, following austere vows, practicing renunciation, penances and austerities, fire sacrifices in order to gain material benedictions from the demigods.
  • To equate chanting to other spiritual activities, such as meditation, austerity, penance or sacrifice.
  • One should not try to utilise the holy name for one's personal service.
  • Chanting the holy name is meant for attaining love of God.

How to counter-act the offence: Approach the devotees and attain sambandha-jnana from them.
