We should always remember that, that to attain to the spiritual life, it is a great penance. But although it is very difficult, in the Puranas, in the Vedic literature, we have got information that there are sages who underwent penance for so many, many years. You can see from the examples of Lord Buddha, Lord Jesus Christ, Lord Chaitanya, Shankaracharya, who were recently within the limit of our historical knowledge. They attained spiritual perfection after undergoing penances for many, many years. 

So spiritual perfection is not very easy thing, that simply by attending in either of the so many groups and hearing something, nice lectures from a person. No. It is practical. If we are actually serious about attaining, so we must be in a spirit of sacrifice. In this age, by the grace of Lord Chaitanya, the matter has been simplified. Matter has been simplified. What is that? 

He prescribed that:

harer nama harer nama harer namaiva kevalam
kalau nasty eva nasty eva nasty eva gatir anyatha

Simply by chanting the holy name of God - either this Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna, Hare Hare/ Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare, or any name of God in any language, that doesn't matter... 

But this is recommended because Lord Chaitanya, Krishna Himself chanted this holy name.
