you just study what was Satya-yuga, what was Dvapara, Treta-yuga, what were the different yugas, how one had to struggle to, even at that time, had to do for 1000 of years, 100 of years had to do self-realization in order to achieve liberation and how Lord Caitanya is giving us love for Krishna, which even Krishna himself didn’t give so easily, how He is simply giving it out freely. Such a mercy we cannot imagine!
Everyone is already liberated; they are already liberated by Lord Caitanya’s mercy. It’s simply now how many people we can get to chant Hare Krishna so that they get beyond liberation and actually get love for Krishna, just like here, so many… even they’re seeing Rama, which is.. may have so many offenses, so they won’t be able just by seeing that, to develop love for Krishna, but even as the namabhasa, they’re saying Rama, they are able to get so much spiritual benefit. That alone is enough to bring them up to liberation. According to Haridasa Thakura in Caitanya-Caritamrata, even a namabhasa gives one liberation in due course. But we are not interested in that. We want actually the people should develop love for Krishna. That’s possible simply by engaging them in chanting
