Purification: Purification of the Senses

                                                                  Q. In this Kali-yuga is chanting the best way to get spiritually elevated? And is chanting alone sufficient?

                                                                  Yes, that is the recommendation of the Vedic literatures. Harer nama harer nama harer nama eva kevalam / kalu nasty eva nasty eva nasty eva gatir anyatha: "There is no other way, no other way, no other way of spiritual progress in this age of Kali than the chanting of the holy names of Lord Hari, Krishna."

                                                                  Q: I am an initiated devotee and stay away from my shiksha guru as well as diksha guru. I attend local chapter of the ISKCON temple thrice a week and participate in the activities of the temple. My (including my wife) daily routine of activities are as per ISKCON guidance. We get up at 3.30am, mangala arti at 4.30am, chant 16 rounds by 8am and listen bhagavatam lectures, take prasadam etc in the house for 4 days, 3 days in the temple. I chant 32 rounds of japa daily and my wife 20 rounds.

                                                                  The Problem is: even after practising this for many years, i am tempted to see famous movies and mythological serials. Can you please explain why this happens and suggest remedial measures for avoiding these attractions.
