Jayapataka Swami: If a child called out to you, mamma,mamma, mamma. She won’t say your whole name. Will you accept? Do you think that this is your daughter – recognizes you or your son? So like that you are thinking of Krsna and calling Jagga, Jagga, Jagga, will He accept? It is all in the mind, what you are thinking of!  If you are thinking of Krsna, even if you don’t pronounce His name perfectly, He is a person, you are a person, He can understand what you are meaning!
