Jayapataka Swami: Many people asked Srila Prabhupada this question. And he would answer in different ways. But most common answer was, if the disciple develops love of Krsna. We want the devotees to use their abilities to preach. One day in Kolkata temple, I was chanting 32 rounds and thought Srila Prabhupada would be very happy! But Srila Prabhupada said, that chant 16 rounds, and go outside and preach. If you stay here and chant all day, who will preach? So he wanted us to preach. Some devotees, in the month of Damodara or Bhisma Pancaka, chant 32 or 64 rounds. And they want permission to chant 300,000 times a day. But actually Srila Prabhupada wanted us to preach. We are ghosti anandis. And we want to see the number of devotees expand.
