Jayapataka Swami: Five? Why five? (Devotee said first five and guru maharaj did Ooosssh!). See, the first five are mentioned at the time of initiation. Ha! Chanting 16 rounds of Hare Krsna maha mantra, which comes to one crore names a year! In India they say, kaun banega crorepati? We want to make you all crorepatis of the holy name! If one chants four rounds in a day, that works out to 2.5 million names a year. That is 25 lacs. Eight rounds is fifty lacs or five million. Even if one chants one round, it is six lacs. Who cannot invest seven or eight minutes a day? Raise your hand! Who can invest at least eight minutes or maybe more in a day? Raise your hand! Ha! So other four instructions, following the four regulative principles. But there is one sixth instruction which is “help me to fulfill all of Srila Prabhupada’s instructions.” It seems it is a very simple promise, but Srila Prabhupada gave me at least fifty instructions, to do book distribution – ten thousand big books every month and one hundred thousand small, to establish and expand the congregation, and to expand the Krsna consciousness preaching unlimitedly. So like that 50 instructions. So I need a LOT OF HELP! Who wants to help me? Haribol!
