Radhanath Swami on Maintaining Spiritual Strength

Just as we regularly eat to maintain physical strength, similarly, we should regularly associate and chant for spiritual strength. The supreme most important responsibility for every human being is to come together to hear the glories of the Lord and to chant His holy name. But it should be done under the direction of genuine saintly persons who are humble servants of God and of previous saintly persons. If we do not regularly have the association of saintly people, if we do not hear and chant the glories of the Lord regularly then we will not be able to maintain our spiritual strength.

    To come together and hear about the glories of the lord is the supreme most responsibility of a human being. How true it is, but unfortunately this is the very aspect totally neglected by modern man.
