One who Chants the Divine Name should be like a 'vivasayi' (farmer). Farmer ploughs the land and sows the seeds (effort); prays for Lord’s grace for rain, as no amount of his effort would fetch him that and waits for the ripe time for a good harvest. One who chants should also possess three things viz. effort, grace and 'kaala' (time)
