Indradyumna Swami: Yesterday, the first stop on our Himalayan journey was Haridwar. ‘Haridwar’ means the gate to Hari, or Krsna. There we participated in the famous daily puja and arotika of the sacred Mother Ganges. Afterwards we did kirtan on the banks of the river with my good friend Raghunath das and his group of pilgrims from the USA.

Srila Prabhupada: Chanting involves the activities of the upper and lower lips as well as the tongue. All three must be engaged in chanting the Hare Krishna maha-mantra. The words “Hare Krishna” should be very distinctly pronounced and heard. (Sri Caitanya-caritamrta, Adi-lila, 17.3 Purport)

The safe boat of devotee association

The safe boat of devotee association.
Sacinandana Swami: The influence of maya is very difficult to overcome. In our scriptures, the material energy is therefore compared to an ocean. When you sail the ocean you never know when the weather will become stormy and high waves will make it impossible for you to continue your journey. Material life is similar – you never know when difficulties will shake you. Krishna explains this fact to Uddhava and then says: “Devotees are like a strong boat that comes to rescue those persons who are repeatedly rising and falling in the fearful ocean of material life. Thus, they are the ultimate shelter.” (Srimad-Bhagavatam, 11.26.32)“
