Today's youth have lot of bad habits - be it smoking, drinking, watching obscene movies etc. Even if one is brought up in a well-cultured family, he is not able to leave such habits. Will he be fit to attain the Lord at all? Is there a way for him to get out of these bad habits and cleanse himself? What path would you prescribe for him?
Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji:
When there is a heavy rain, every one catches the viral fever. No one is spared. Isn't it?
In the same way, this is Kali Yuga. And this Yuga is characterized by such bad thoughts and qualities among people. It is common for anyone in this Yuga, especially for the youth.
But the mercy and compassion of the Lord is such that He does not impose any restrictions on us to attain Him. He is accessible for everyone.
Now, how is this possible?
In this Yuga, three activities are alone enough to attain the Lord –worship in temples, Satsang, and Nama Kirtan. Satsang here, means the reading of Srimad Bhagavatam, listening to the stories and qualities of the Lord, the lives of great Mahans etc.
Even if the first and second are not possible, I can assure you that the Divine Name alone can make you attain God.
This is certain and it is the only way!
