This is concerning Quote 112.† How does all the family members benefit just by one member of the family chanting?† Please explaine little more to me.
†Thank You.† Miten Patel
(112) Just like the loud ringing of the mobile phone awakens everyone in the room, similarly the chanting of even one member in the family benefits the souls of all members in that family.

Nityananda! Gauranga! Hare Krishna! Jaya Guru Parampara! Pranams! :pranams: and Blessings! :bless:Miten. We have many obligations to our family for giving us birth and most kindly maintaining us as explained in the Shrimad Bhagavatam. So there is a relationship of give and take with our family members. Thus, by chanting the Holy Names of Nityananda, Gauranga, and Hare Krishna, we give them lots of spiritual credits even if they dont know them or dont want to have them. Because they gave us birth and they maintained and cared for us (acted as instruments of Lord) without which we would not have been able to chant, so they will get a spiritual share of our chanting and spiritual practices and advancement.
