10 easy steps to become a better Hare Krishna

Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu’s chanting of the Hare Krsna mantra must be understood to be devoid of all offenses. The ten offenses against the holy name are as follows:

  1. To blaspheme a devotee of the Lord
  2. To consider the Lord and the demigods to be on the same level or to think that there are many gods
  3. To neglect the orders of the spiritual master
  4. To minimize the authority of scriptures (Vedas)
  5. To interpret the holy name of God
  6. To commit sins on the strength of chanting
  7. To instruct the glories of the Lord’s name to the unfaithful
  8. To compare the chanting of the holy name with material piety
  9. To be inattentive while chanting the holy name
  10. To be attached to material things in spite of chanting the holy name.
