Nama Article 15th July 2015
तत्कर्म यन्न बन्धाय सा विद्या या विमुक्तये
आयासायापरं कर्म विद्याऽन्या शिल्पनैपुणम्
That is action, which doesn't lead to binding; that is knowledge, which leads to liberation. All other actions are mere chores of arduousness; all other sciences are plain craftsmanship.

Namakirtan is definitely the easiest way. But our illusion (maya) would not allow us to do even that. Hence we should not get caught in the illusion. One should always catch hold of the Divine Name with out indulging in any pomp and show.
