| "If you go on chanting this Hare Kṛṣṇa mantra, the first installment of your gain will be that you will understand that you are not this body, you are spirit soul, which takes at least many years to understand, that 'I am not this body'. Everybody... You ask anybody, 'What you are?' He will say, 'I am this, sir, this and that'. 'I am American', 'I am this body', 'I am that body'. But nobody knows that he is not this body. But if you chant this Hare Kṛṣṇa mantra, the first installment of your gain will be that you will realize yourself, ahaṁ brahmāsmi: 'I am not this body, but I am spirit soul. I am part and parcel of the Supreme Lord'. And as soon as you come to this platform of understanding, then the next stage will be you will be jolly. "
