The Nectar of Devotion — Vrndavana, October 30, 1972
1239) Whether I know I can reach suddha-nama by gradual development! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!
————-Just like Rupa Gosvami: he was chanting. We are also chanting. But we are not in the stage of Rupa Gosvami or Sanatana Gosvami and Haridasa Thakura. Actually, if we come to that stage then there will be Krsna-prema, love of Krsna. Just like Rupa Gosvami said that “What shall I chant with one tongue and two ears? If there were millions of tongues and trillions of ears, I could chant something.” And we cannot finish even sixteen rounds, because we have not created our taste for chanting. Still we are in the namaparadha stage. But don’t be disappointed. Go on chanting. You’ll come to the right position, namabhasa, then suddha-nama. Everything requires gradual development. ————-——————————
