1969 Conversations and Morning Walks

Yes. Why not? Chanting is the basic standing of our life.
Meeting with Devotees -- June 9, 1969, New Vrindaban:

Hayagrīva: Can one chant when working?

Prabhupāda: Yes. Why not? Chanting is the basic standing of our life.

Kīrtanānanda: I think here, as I look at it, we're spending about five hours a day in ārati and kīrtana, which, I think, is really good because I think that is the heart of Vṛndāvana.

Prabhupāda: Yes. That is the life of Vṛndāvana.

Kīrtanānanda: So I don't want to sacrifice that for anything.

Prabhupāda: Yes. That must be...

Kīrtanānanda: That must be there. That's the heart.

Prabhupāda: You can forego even reading Bhagavad-gītā, but that must be continued.
