vrīhibīja nyāyaḥ (paddy seed)

If there is a single seed of paddy left, it will grow, and produce many many more in upcoming seasons.

As already explained, all our desires lay in a dormant seed-like form in our hearts, waiting for their season to grow, and produce many more seeds. The original single seed, from which all the jungle of material desires had grown out, is the desire to lord it over Lord's energy, namely material nature. We have usurped the property of somebody else, in this case, God's. Until we surrender to the process of purely chanting hare kṛṣṇa hare kṛṣṇa kṛṣṇa kṛṣṇa hare hare / hare rāma hare rāma rāma rāma hare hare, there is no other way to get rid of unwanted garden weeds. And unless we perform it in an unalloyed way there is always a possibility for this original seed to find an opportunity to sprout in a fertile environment filled with sense objects. So this is the actual process, chanting of hare kṛṣṇa, to clean up the garden of our heart, and make it nice, and pleasant for Śrī Hari to make it His place of pleasure pastimes.
