Today's Smart Quote is from A Second Chance, Chapter 11, in the section entitled, "A Special Concession for All People."

In the present age, for all people the best path to achieve self-realization is to chant the Hare Krishna maha-mantra: Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna, Hare Hare/ Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare. The conditioned souls in this Age of Kali are so engrossed in sinful activities that it is impossible for them to follow the Vedic injunctions in a systematic way. The chanting of the Hare Krishna maha-mantra is the special concession of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu--Krishna Himself--who appeared five hundred years ago just to deliver the fallen souls by inaugurating the sankirtana movement, the movement of the congregational chanting of the Lord's holy names. . .

We can see the power of chanting the holy name of Krishna by studying the Krishna consciousness movement. In this movement all kinds of sinful activities are being given up by persons who have been addicted to bad habits ever since they were living in the wombs of their mothers. This is their good fortune.
