Quotes by His Holiness Lokanath Swami

The Best Time to Chant

The morning section of the day is the foundation for the rest of the day and is considered the best time for bhakti. A businessman earns maximum profit when he runs his business during this period. Our business, as devotees, is to chant Hare Krishna and to attain Lord’s maximum mercy, thus,  we should chant in the morning.

The Bhakti Yoga

In comparison to any other yoga system, a jiva can engage in a totally reciprocal relationship with Krishna within the bhakti yoga system.
