Actually, in this age of Kali, the only way to get to our real home, to get our real benefit is chanting of the Holy Name properly. Chanting the Holy Name (the Hare Krishna maha-mantra) without offence is our main practice, but for some more intimate service, like cooking and puja (worship of Deities), it is necessary to have the second initiation. Also, you can chant the Holy Name everywhere and loudly, but there are some rules and regulations concerning the Gayatri mantra.

To recite this mantra, you must take bath and wear clean clothes. It is recited in the morning, at noon and in the evening—if you work outside and cannot recite it three times a day, then you must recite it minimum two times a day (in the morning and in the evening). You should not say this Gayatri mantra loudly, it is only recited silently. You also need a clean asan (a seat mat, or rug). Take a mat/rug and sprinkle some Ganges water onto it to purify it. If you do not have Ganges water, you can take some water in a glass, or some other clean vessel, and turn it into Ganges water with this mantra:

gange cha yamune chaiva godavari sarasvati
narmade sindho kaveri jale 'smin sannidhim kuru

So, you need a clean asan and clean clothes. When reciting Gayatri, you should not wear the clothes which, for example, you took prasadam in. Then, you should recite the Gayatri mantra facing east side in the morning and north side in the evening. If you have a problem facing (or determining) east and north sides, then you have Deities' photograph in your house, you can recite the Gayatri mantra in front of the Deities.

To recite Gayatri mantra, you should put your right hand a little above your navel, and as you recite the mantra you should keep count on the fingers of your right hand (they will show you how). Men first recite the Brahma-gayatri, but ladies start from the guru-mantra, they do not recite the Brahma-gayatri... Each of the mantras is recited ten times counting on your fingers as I have shown you.

Maharaj will give you a papper where all the mantras are written, and if you recite these mantras every day, you can get connection with Srimati Radharani's zone.

My dandavat to everybody.

'Bhajahu Re Mana'
'This song was written by Govinda Das. There were two brothers who used to always fight: one brother, Govinda, worshipped Mother Kali, and the other brother worshipped Lord Krishna...'


Thakura vaisnava-gana
'Lust, anger, greed, illusion, pride, and ego all pull me in their own directions. Thus my mind wanders like a blind man who does not know the right way from the wrong way.'
ঠাকুর বৈষ্ণবগণ

Strong desire is necessary: if you have desire, mercy will come.
