Bhagavad Gita As It Is -
Chapter 13 Text 26
anye tv evam ajanantah
te 'pi catitaranty eva
anye--others; tu--but; evam--thus; ajanantah--without spiritual knowledge; srutva--by hearing; anyebhyah--from others; upasate--begin to worship; te--they; api--also; ca--and; atitaranti--transcend; eva--certainly; mrtyum--the path of death; sruti-parayanah--inclined to the process of hearing.
Again there are those who, although not conversant in spiritual knowledge, begin to worship the Supreme Person upon hearing about Him from others. Because of their tendency to hear from authorities, they also transcend the path of birth and death.
Srila Prabhupada writes in his purport; This hearing process is very important. Lord Caitanya, who preached Krsna consciousness in the modern world, gave great stress to hearing because if the common man simply hears from authoritative sources he can progress, especially, according to Lord Caitanya, if he hears the transcendental vibration Hare Krsna, Hare Krsna, Krsna Krsna, Hare Hare/ Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare.
