Question: How to develop or be really fixed in our faith and Krsna consciousness during an unstable period situation that we are going through like now? How to better use this time that we have to purify ourselves and please you, and spread Krsna consciousness?
Guru maharaj: You see, in times of difficulty it is easier to be Krsna conscious! It says that Bhagavad-gita tells us that people approach God sometimes when there is danger, sometimes when they are curious, sometimes when they want something or sometimes for knowledge. Did you hear us? Krsna said that this world is a dukalayam. It is a place of suffering. Who doesn’t believe that? Ha! And this world is temporary, that means even the suffering is temporary, the happiness is temporary, everything is temporary. But the relationship between Krsna and His devotees is eternal. So that is why if this world was too good, we would want to stay here. So having some suffering is good, it keeps us, we would live to leave this place and go back home, back to Godhead. So I think that through the internet you can do preaching. Using internet, you can preach! Haribol!
