My thought today was based on how I sometimes feel about Japa – we feel like we just don't want to spend the time and effort to chant rounds – there are so many other things in life to be done and the mind tends to latch onto that excuse – "You can finish them later, you have all day….now you need to do more important things before it's too late".
Srila Prabhupada established the regular morning program for this very reason – so that we can become regulated in our sadhana and stick to it every day. Even if we can't attend the morning program at the temple, we can have our own morning program of chanting Japa and reading etc.
We must stay strong in our determination to carry on with good quality sadhana….chanting is our life and soul.
We Must Stay Strong In Our Determination
