Jayapataka Swami: Seeing a picture of Krsna or Prabhupada or chanting in front of the deity of Prabhupada is considered attentive chanting. In fact, if we chant in front of the deities, we are using our eyes to see Krsna, we are using our tongue and lips to say Krsna and our ears to hear Krsna. We are using all our senses. If we have incense, you can be smelling the prasadam of Krsna. And when we use our beads, all our senses are absorbed in mantra meditation.
