Posted on facebook by HH Indradyumna Swami Maharaj:
“During his grhastha years, Srila Prabhupada set a specific regimen to insure that he chanted at least 16 rounds every day. He would chant at least 4 rounds before eating anything in the morning, then chant another 4 rounds (minimum) before taking lunch. Before accepting dinner, he would chant at least 4 more rounds, and would not take rest at night without chanting another 4 rounds.” [ Giriraja Swami, Lecture, LA, 11.02.11 ]
Comment added by Srutakirti Das:
He told me that he chanted four rounds early in the morning and four rounds before each meal He said it was practical, and if you don’t chant your four rounds you can’t eat that meal. He laughed and said this way you will be sure to get your rounds done.
