Question: At the time of initiation we take vow of chanting minimum 16 rounds. But due to different circumstances I sometimes just somehow or other finish the 16 rounds. is it really pleasing to you? Because Hare Krsna Mahamantra is not different from Krsna Himself. Should we every time be very attentive, whenever we chant, no matter how busy we may be? I often remember my initiation vows and think how you will be pleased.

Jayapataka Swami: We vow to chant 16 rounds that we should do. Sometimes we may be more attentive than other times, but one of the ten offenses is inattentive chanting. So if we chant inattentively, then it may be offensive chanting. But offensive chanting is better than not chanting at all and if we try to concentrate then it is better. So first is just chanting and then we try to chant with better quality. Hare Krsna.
