“The Complete Science of Bhakti-Yoga #10”
2304) Whether I know the power of devotional service! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!
————————–The example is this Ajamila. Ajamila, he was the greatest sinful man. Similarly, Jagai-Madhai. So Krsna consciousness is so nice that from the life of Ajamila we understand, simply by uttering the name of Narayana at the time of his death, he became eligible to be promoted to the Vaikunthaloka. Go on.
Pradyumna: “Sukadeva points out that austerity, charity and the performance of ritualistic ceremonies for counteracting sinful activities are recommended processes, but that by performing them one cannot remove the sin desire-seed from the heart, as was the case with Ajamila in his youth. This sinful desire-seed can be accomplished very easily by chanting the maha-mantra, or Hare Krsna mantra, as recommended by Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu. In other words, unless one adopts the path of devotional service, he cannot be one hundred percent clean from all the reactions of sinful activities.” ——————————-——————————-
