“No matter what impediments there may be, you have to chant Hare Krishna. Maya, the material nature and the material modes may give someone so many imagined reasons why not to chant. But none of them are real. It’s all illusion. No matter what, we have to chant. It’s the only hope. By chanting and remembering Krishna at the end of the life then we go back to Krishna’s nature.
Sometimes there maybe some personality clash. Some authority might not deal in a way we consider to be totally fair, so that you can get a mental idea, reason, excuse to take ground. “Send somebody in Krishna Consciousness to deal with me fairly – I will chant Hare Krishna.”
Or someone’s wife may not treat one properly or one’s husband may not treat one properly or the weather may not be very good or there may be some stomach ache or any number of things that might happen – some disease or old age, or whatever it might be, someone hits you with a shoe, no matter what, we should simply realize that whatever is happening in this material world, there is no use of becoming preoccupied with that and forget about Krishna. That will be the trick of Maya.HH Jayapataka Swami From the book: Vaishnava Vani (Page 28-29)
