During the day, people are gathering together in the coffee shops, in India we call it as tea stalls, or in the taverns, people gather together and they start to talk, but here, so the devotees, they gather together, bhagavata nitya sevaya, and they discuss the Bhagavata. They discuss the glories of Krishna. They discuss the Bhagavad-gita. This is very pleasing to Krishna. And this is very purifying. This allows, ones’ consciousness to be little more open and is little more effective in softening the heart.
