| "This chanting and hearing is so pious that it will gradually cleanse your heart, and you will understand what is God—what is God, what is your relationship with Him, what is His function, what is your function. All these things will come automatically, gradually. It will take some… Just like to cure a disease it takes some time, not that immediately you give the medicine and immediately he becomes cured. Immediately he becomes cured, of course, by hearing, provided one hears properly. But it is not possible, because we are associated with this material contamination. It requires little time. But this is the only process of this age. Simply you hear this chanting, Hare Kṛṣṇa, and hear, and if you have got time you can read books. That is also hearing."
