The great opportunity

We shouldn’t lose, we should have rather our full faith in the power of this chanting of Hare Krishna. That simply by hearing the Bhagavatam, simply by hearing the chanting, simply by taking prasadam, chanting, dancing, people will completely be awakened to their original consciousness. We should have this faith in the process of Krishna Consciousness and simply engage people in chanting, in hearing, in dancing, and feasting on prasadam and reading Srila Prabupad’s books. This process has nothing to do with the time and place that we are in. That time and place will mean that we have to present it in a particular way just to suit the mentality of that time and place. But the process goes beyond any material circumstances. Anyone who can come in association with this chanting, with the Krishna Conscious… with devotional service, they will be purified. There is nothing more powerful than the mercy of Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu. This is a great opportunity.
