Guru Maharaj: Of course, overcoming the false ego is a very important thing. I don’t know if one is chanting, but they are committing offences, how effective it will be to overcome false ego. We know that by helping others to be Kṛṣṇa conscious, that makes the chanting more purified. So, Śrīla Prabhupāda encouraged us to chant 16 rounds and then preach. So just chanting more rounds without preaching is not necessarily so effective. Rather to help others advance in Kṛṣṇa consciousness while chanting is the best.
