      We feel sleepy while chanting, or we think of so many things while chanting, because we do not concentrate on hearing the Hare Krishna Maha Mantra attentively while chanting. Inattentive chanting is one of the offenses to the holy name. https://krishna.org/the-ten-offenses-in-chanting-the-hare-krishna-mantra/ Not experiencing bliss while chanting Hare Krishna is a sign of committing offenses.

      Reena Menon Thank you both Prabhujis... All glories to Srila Prabhupada.. haribol... One more question what does it mean when we are unable to read Srila Prabhupada's books...

If it is so.. how to mitigate? Thanks.. Hare Krishna..

      If you are falling asleep while chanting Hare Krishna the simple solution is to just stand up and walk around while chanting Hare Krishna, it is very difficult to fall asleep if you are walking around. If you can get a tulsi plant it is very auspicious to chant in front of Srimati Tulsi Devi and very auspicious to circumnabulate (walk around) Tulsi Devi. So yo...  more
