people they think that religion has to be very dry, or some type of austere thing, no. Real spiritual life is a nitya mahotsava, it’s a daily festival. This chanting the Lord’s name. In fact Caitanya Mahaprabhu had given dharma in such a way, that you don’t think that you are doing dharma, you think that you are doing only festival. There is no austerity that you feel that there is something that I am missing in my life. The whole life you are going and you are thinking, “everything is complete, but same time you are taking, you are achieving the highest perfection of religion, highest perfection of life. This is what we need.
