Hearing and Chanting - an essential subject
Material subject matters become stale, and one cannot hear a certain subject for a long time; he wants change. But as far as transcendental subject matter is concerned, it is called nitya-nava-navāyamāna. This means that one can go on chanting and hearing about the Lord and never feel tired but remain fresh and eager to hear more and more. By chanting the holy name of the Lord, one is cleansed of the material conception of life. When the dirt is cleansed from the core of one's heart, one can realise the form of the Supreme Personality of Godhead. By hearing the holy name of the Lord, one comes to the platform of understanding the personal form of the Lord. If one is fortunate enough to hear from the mouth of realized devotees, he is very easily successful on the path of devotional service. Unless one attentatively hears the holy names one cannot properly chant the holy names of the lord.
