So this Krsna consciousness movement is thoroughly wholesale process of cleansing the mind. Therefore Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu has given His own version: ceto-darpana-marjanam bhava-maha-davagni-nirvapanam sreyah-kairava-candrika-vitaranam vidya-vadhu-jivanam (CC Antya 20.12). The purport is -- it is a long verse -- that by chanting, param vijayate sri-krsna-sankirtanam, if we perform this Krsna sankirtana, then immediately our core of heart, which is filled up with all dirty things, will be cleansed. For example, you can see practically all my disciples present here, they are coming from Western countries -- Europe, America, or even in India, Parsis and other, Muhammadans, they are coming. But they are now pure, cleansed of all dirty things. In this movement throughout the whole world there are at least ten to twelve thousand devotees like that. And before this life they were addicted to all kinds of sinful life. We have summarized all sinful activities into four groups, namely, illicit sex, meat-eating, intoxication and gambling. So all these ten to twelve thousand men who are now attached with this Krsna consciousness movement, they are not committing these four pillars of sinful life.
Therefore our request is that you take to this chanting method. It is very easy: Hare Krsna, Hare Krsna, Krsna Krsna, Hare Hare/ Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare, and gradually you shall become free from all sinful reaction of life. But one thing we must be very careful: that we should not commit again sinful life. If you chant Hare Krsna mantra, you become free immediately from all sinful reaction. But if you commit again sinful life, that is your responsibility. This is warned very... Amongst the ten kinds of offenses, one offense is very grievous offense: namnad balad yasya hi papa-buddhih -- if one thinks that "I am chanting Hare Krsna; therefore whatever sinful acts I am doing, it is becoming counteracted." If you keep yourself on the platform of chanting Hare Krsna mantra and do not commit willfully again sinful life, then you are liberated. So not only mukti-marga; if you keep yourself always pure, do not commit any sinful activity and chant Hare Krsna mantra, then your life is successful. Don't commit the mistake of the elephant, that take bath thoroughly and again come and throw dust on your body.
