The 10 Offenses Pt.9


It is an offense to preach the glories of the holy name of the Lord to the faithless.

To glorify the importance of the holy name, or elevated information of Krishna to persons who have no interest; who are not ready to hear, or who may as a result of hearing become more antagonistic.

  • Pseudo-spiritualists selling the holy name to unqualified persons.
  • When you make this offence, you run the risk of diminishing your own faith.

What about public chanting and preaching?

  • You can get people to chant; by chanting they will be purified and appreciate the holy name. Srila Prabhupada encouraged everyone to chant, but he didn't immediately tell them all the details.

How to counter-act the offence: No recommendation given for counteracting this offense. Just don't do it!
