Everyone must rise early, take bath and attend mangala-arati, chant at least sixteen good rounds, attend class, and follow the four regulative principles strictly. If these things are lax, then there is no question of spiritual life. Anyone who does not accept these things staunchly will have to fall down.
- Srila Prabhupada's letter to Abhirama dasa, 16th January, 1975
Please continue your work, and most of all try to rigidly follow all of the rules and regulations and chant at least sixteen good rounds daily without fail."
- Srila Prabhupada's letter to Gupta dasa, 8th April, 1975
"Please try and render devotional service very carefully following all of the rules and regulations mentioned in our books. Always chant at least sixteen good rounds daily. If you try very sincerely to do these things Krsna will help you and you will become spiritually perfect in this life."
- Srila Prabhupada's letter to Gokularani dasi, 15th March, 1975

These things you must do without fail otherwise, there is no question of spiritual life."
