Here is more Nectar: What is your excuse?

Please accept the blessings of my  Gurudeva and Srila Prabhupada


 here is more nectar
To not chant 64 rounds daily is an act of impersonalism because Lord Gauranga asked for it, and to not do it shows one is not fully sincere in KC, because Lord Gauranga asked for it,what is your excuse for not chanting 64 rounds daily ?

I know this seems heavy, yes Srila Prabhupada set the minimum standard as 16 rounds aday. but should we not advance and come up
to the standard he asked us to get too?He tried to bring the "horse to the water" will we still refuse to take his instruction to heart,at least
after having been a devotee for so many years, to have doubled ones chanting or come to the "minimum 64 rounds" is a must,we can not stay spiritual infants our whole life?
NoI 7: The holy name, character, pastimes and activities of Kṛṣṇa are all transcendentally sweet like sugar candy. Although the tongue of one afflicted by the jaundice of avidyā [ignorance] cannot taste anything sweet, it is wonderful that simply by carefully chanting these sweet names every day, a natural relish awakens within his tongue, and his disease is gradually destroyed at the root.

NoI 8: The essence of all advice is that one should utilize one's full time — twenty-four hours a day — in nicely chanting and remembering the Lord's divine name, transcendental form, qualities and eternal pastimes, thereby gradually engaging one's tongue and mind. In this way one should reside in Vraja [Goloka Vṛndāvana dhāma] and serve Kṛṣṇa under the guidance of devotees. One should follow in the footsteps of the Lord's beloved devotees, who are deeply attached to His devotional service.

There is no intend in offending any devotee, but remind us all of the standard set by Lord Caitanya and Nityananda Prabhu, and that Srila Prabhupada tried to introduce in ISKCON

 

  "se janera nama ami bali 'lakshesvara' tatha bhiksha amara, na yai anya ghara."
"Lord Gauranga continued-I call such a person a laksheshvara. I only accept meals in such a person's house. I never go anywhere else."
Purport by Shrila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura Prabhupada:
shri chaitanya bhaktagana abhaktera sahita sambhashana karena na. jini bhaktivyatita karma, jnana o anyabhilashara kathaya pradatta tahara sahita bandhutva karibe na.
"The devotees of Lord Shri Chaitanya never talk with such non-devotees. They never do friendship with those who are engaged in the cultivation of karma, jnana or other desires which are devoid of bhakti.

pratyah laksha-nama grahana na karile patita vyaktiganera visaya-bhoga pravritti vriddhi paya, takhana ara tahara shri gaurasunderarera seva karite pare na.
"Those who don't accept this vow of chanting 100,000 names daily, fall down even more although they were fallen in the first place (due to the contamination of Kali-yuga). Thus their propensity for enjoying the senses and sense-objects continually and steadily increases and ultimately they are not able to render any kind of service even to the most merciful Lord Gaurasundera.
lakshesvara vyatita gaura-bhaktira adarsa gaudiyajana kehai svikara karena na.
"This is the precise reason why the real Gaudiya-bhaktas do not accept any other ideal (adarsa) in Gaura-bhakti or Krishna-bhakti except the process of chanting 100,000 names of the maha-mantra daily.



Best wishes
