root cause of material existence

SB 10.7.1-2 Thus one’s attachment for hearing about material things, which is the root cause of material existence, vanishes, and one gradually develops devotional service to the Supreme Lord, attachment for Him, and friendship with devotees who give us the contribution of Kṛṣṇa consciousness. If you think it fit, kindly speak about those activities of the Lord.

Śrī Kṛṣṇa, the Personality of Godhead, who is the Paramātmā [Supersoul] in everyone’s heart and the benefactor of the truthful devotee, cleanses desire for material enjoyment from the heart of the devotee who has developed the urge to hear His messages, which are in themselves virtuous when properly heard and chanted. SB 1.2.17
…..So the ear is open. So therefore the Vedic mantras are called śruti. We have to hear the mantra, Vedicmantra. Just like if a man is bitten by snake,[goes into a coma] he iscaused to hear the snake charmer’s mantrastill there are—so that he can become awakened. And it is said in the Cāṇakya Paṇḍita śloka, mantrauṣadhi-vaśaḥ sarpaḥMantra is powerful still—by mantra, a snake-bittenperson can be brought into life. There are still some snake charmers in the villages. In our Māyāpura there is a Muhammadan, he can cure the snake-bitten case by mantra still. Bombay  12/74
So this snake charmers mantra is a material mantra, unlike the Maha Mantra which is the greatest of all Mantras because not only does it release us from  material bondage, liberates us, but more importantly, re awakens our original dormant God-Krsna Consciousness !!!
