How to chant if you are too busy?

Q: How to chant if you are too busy?

A: Hare Krishna. Thank you for your question.
Srila Prabhupada gave a clue how a busy man in household life might chant 16 rounds. Chant 4 before breakfast, 4 before lunch, 4 before dinner, and 4 before taking rest for the evening.

Another point is that chanting elevates our consciousness so we do not need to sleep as much. Instead of sleeping eight hours, you can sleep six hours and chant two hours.

Q: I am really interested in Bhagavad Gita but if i read the book i can’t understand. So whom am I going to ask?

A: You can ask us online or at livehelp@krishna.com.

Q: Is it a must to chant 16 rounds?

A: Srila Prabhupada considered that if we chanted 16 rounds daily and tried to avoid the offenses in chanting that by the end of our lives we would become pure enough to be eligible to return to the spiritual world.
