Radhanath Swami on the Fruits of Illusion

To do any good to the world, we must arm ourselves with the power that can destroy illusion - the illusion which nourishes lust, greed, pride, anger, and illusion itself. By slashing away the root of a tree, the entire tree dies. Similarly, constant remembrance and chanting of the Holy Names of the Lord slashes away the roots of illusion, and consequently kills all bad qualities – the fruits of illusion.

    Constant remembrance of the Holy Names of the Lord would improve our consciousness, and thus our desires would be spiritualized.

  6. Its so important to understand that bad qualities are the result of the illusion that we are these material bodies and independent of God. The link is not necessarily evident always, but if we hear about it, there is no doubt about it - we can see the connection clearly.
