The five most powerful bhakti practices
- To chant the Hare Krishna mantra.
- To hear and discuss Srimad-Bhagavatam.
- To offer services to the Deity at home or in the temple.
- To associate with the Lord’s devotees.
- To live in a holy place connected to Lord Krishna.
Chaitanya Mahaprabhu emphasized the primacy of these five principles while instructing Rupa Goswami, one of His chief disciples.
