Essence: “In this Kali Yuga anyone and everyone can be delivered by the mercy of the Holy Name, but if one offends the all merciful Holy Name of the Lord, there is no hope for deliverance.”

“We have to take proper advantage by chanting Hare Krsna as our Spiritual master instructs us and trains us and inspires us. And we have to be very attentive to avoiding any offenses to the Holy Name, which may slow our progress down or in some cases take away all the benefits that we have gained through chanting Hare Krishna.”

“So we should hear attentively everyday, meditate on this and try to free ourselves of all these offenses.”
