The World Health Organization said that the trauma that we are going through now is worse that the Second World War. And more people have died. Śrīla Prabhupāda said that there would be a third World War and after that the preaching would be very good. But this pandemic is like the World War. And we should try to get the people to chant Hare Kṛṣṇa. But we do not ask Kṛṣṇa for any material favor. But people in general, they will do whatever they do. And even if they chant offensively, it is better than no chanting.
