Jayapataka Swami: Hard to believe! Haridas Thakur would chant three lac names. We heard that he chanted one lac loud, one lac soft and one lac mentally. To do three lacs if you are slow it takes 24 hours. 2 hours of 16 rounds, 8 hours for one lac. Obviously he was faster, but then three lacs a day, leaves very little time for prasadam and rest. Now four lacs a day, I don’t believe it. Maybe you can tape his chanting. Bkbkbkbkbk! Bkbkbkbk! One round finishing. I heard someone chanting hare ram ram ramramram! He was stuck on Rams! I would chant 32 rounds and Srila Prabhupada said what are you doing? I was very proud and said I am chanting 32 rounds. He said if you stay here all day and chant, who will go out and preach? Chant 16 rounds and go out and preach. So that is what Srila Prabhupada told me.
