sravanam kirtanam visnoh smaranam pada-sevanam
arcanam vandanam dasyam… [SB 7.5.23]
Out of these nine methods, all the nine, or eight, seven, six, even one. If you engage yourself. Just like Maharaja Pariksit, he engaged himself simply for hearing. He became perfect. Simply by hearing Bhagavata from Sukadeva Gosvami. And Sukadeva Gosvami also became perfect, simply by reciting Srimad-Bhagavatam. Sri visnoh smarane, sravane pariksid abhavad vaiyasakih kirtane. This is also kirtana. Abhavad vaiyasakih kirtane. Prahladah smarane. Prahlada Maharaja, he was put into so many difficulties by his father. He could not resist, he was a poor child, five years. And the rascal father was teasing him in so many ways. So what could he do? He was simply thinking of Krishna, “What can I do?” There are so many processes. If you take one of the processes your life will be successful. Simply by thinking of Krishna. ————-
