(Back Cover -- First Collier Paperbacks Edition 1972)
"Simply by chanting the holy names of God -- Hare Krsna, Hare Krsna, Krsna Krsna, Hare Hare/ Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare -- one cleanses the dirt from his heart and gains understanding that he is part and parcel of the Supreme Lord and that it is his duty to serve Him. This process is very pleasant: we chant the Hare Krsna mantra, we dance rythmically, and we eat nice prasadam. While enjoying this life, we are preparing to enter into the kingdom of God in our next life. This is not a fabrication -- it is all factual. Although to a layman this appears to be a fabrication, Krsna reveals Himself within to one who is serious about God realization. Both Krsna and the spiritual master help the sincere soul. The spiritual master is the external manifestation of God, who is situated in everyone's heart as Supersoul. For one who is very serious about understanding the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Supersoul immediately renders assistance by directing him to a bona fide spiritual master. In this way the spiritual candidate is helped from within and without."
