Aqui Srila Prabhupada responde a uma devota que estava preocupada pois achava que não deveria pensar nos passatempos de Krsna enquanto cantasse Japa. De facto, por cantar Hare Krsna, o devoto(a) irá recordar os passatempos de Krsna e começará a almejar participar nos mesmos em uma Rasa específica.
"It is not offensive to think of Krsna's pastimes while chanting. It is required.
One must try for the point when he simply hears Krsna, and immediately all of Krsna" His pastimes, His form and His qualities are in his thoughts.
So to be always immersed in thoughts of Krsna, this is our process. So this is our duty to remember Krsna's pastimes.
One who cannot remember Krsna, let him always hear Hare Krsna and then when he has perfected this art then always he will remember Krsna, His activities, His qualities, etc." (SPL 12/12/68)
