In Kaliyuga, namasankirtanam (repeated chanting  of the holy name) is the easiest and recommended way to attain the Lord. Our mind is like a matchstick and atma (God consciousness) is the surface against which we have to rub to light the fire ie attain the light of God realization. Each one of us has the potential to create the light like the match stick. We are all endowed with unlimited powers. Not a single person is without them! A wet match stick cannot light. It needs to get warmth to dry up before it can help ignite. Similarly, to gain awareness of our inner strength and power, we must join the company of the holy, strive in spiritual practice (sadhana), and steadfastly practise repetition of the Divine Name and meditation. This will lead us to the light i.e the Lord.
