This Krishna conscious movement is to… meant to take a person right from the, you know… point A right to the final, full stage of realization, you know, bypassing all these different levels of gradually getting out of bodily consciousness, already skipping over that and coming right up to the platform where one acts not as the body but as a pure spirit, as an eternal living entity and the body is simply instrumental, and in that consciousness performs transcendental service, transcendental meditation, chanting
Hare Krishna Hare Krishna
Krishna Krishna Hare Hare
Hare Rama Hare Rama
Rama Rama Hare Hare
It’s the form of that purely transcendental meditation. So, this is a great mercy that this type of shortcut has been provided.
