Glory of the Holy Name and Ten Offences
(The book that a disciple receives from the lotus hands of Sri Guru at the
time of initiation into the chanting of the Holy Name)
"Take this book also, the ten offences of the Holy Name are written in it.
Many people chant the Holy Name, but they do not get the result because they
make offences. Mainly there are ten offences, they are written in this book.
Read what they are, memorise them, and you must avoid these ten offences. If
you chant without offences, you will get the result quickly."
—Srila B.N. Acharya Maharaj
