Don’t Stop Chanting

Many times we just don't feel like chanting – it's common amongst devotees, despite the number of years we've been engaged in reciting the Holy names.

If we have doubts about chanting, it means we don't feel anything and it's become mechanical or ritualistic….something we do because we have to do it not necessarily because we want to.
There is hope for us all….if we simply pray to the Lord for help each day – ask the Lord to give the inspiration to continue with our chanting and to overcome obstacles like the mind or other things.
I read a very nice quote the other day in this regard.

“…even if there may be some problems, always try to remain in Krsna consciousness. Do not give up chanting the Hare Krsna mantra simply due to some external difficulties. Under all circumstances you should always chant Hare Krsna Hare Krsna Krsna Krsna Hare Hare, Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare. This will protect you from all danger of being influenced by maya or the material energy.”
