On the Nitaai-forum, one of the devotees asked about the importance of being engaged in various types of devotional services versus chanting the Holy Names. The response below, by Swamiji Gaurangapada, will make things very clear. This is what I would like to share with you...
"I have noticed a particular trend among many devotees i have met, which i would like to ask You about. It is concerning the seva. i see sometimes devotees engaged in various type of services during the day (quite "in stress"), having finally little amount of time to complete the chanting. Shrila Prabhupada in Shrimad-Bhagavatam 4.24.70 purport:
That is the instruction given by Lord Chaitanya Mahaprabhu in His Shikshashtaka 3. Kirtaniyah sada harih: [Cc. adi 17.31]
