————- Then, inattention while chanting the Holy Name. You should chant this Hare Krsna and you should hear also. If your mind is acting, the mind is somewhere else, and you are chanting, that is an offence. You should hear, this is called, Samadhi. If you chant and hear then your mind is interlocked by hearing and chanting, this is samadhi. Samadhi means trance, trance means completely absorbed. So by hearing and chanting act in both ways you’ll be in trance, and that trance will keep you in that transcendental stage, that is called samadhi. So if we become inattentive, that is offence. ————————-
