|Again, as a
practical sadhana,Sankaradeva adopted Sravana (listening) and Kirtana (chanting),
Sravana-Kirtana is necessary for the purification of the mind, which in turn leads to
supreme devotion. In Bhakti - pradip, he says: -
"Oh friend, rely upon my words, I do my deeds in the shape of Sravana-Kirtana
disregarding all other Deva-dharmas; certainly you will attain salvation with ease'."
Further he says: -
"At the beginning Prajapati brought the four Vedas and searched them thrice turning
the pages.The Creator at last found this truth in the Vedas that Harikirtan is the only
essence and the way by whichpeople attain salvation out of this trouble some world.
Especially in this age of Kali, this is the only great religion. So give up all other
religions and follow this."
