Srila Prabhupada : Your mind is so disturbed, you cannot concentrate your mind. Therefore chant, and by the sound vibration, it will forcibly enter it into your mind. Even if you don’t want Krsna, Krsna will enter within your mind. By force. (laughter) This is the easiest process. You don’t require to endeavor. Krsna is coming. (laughter) (Prabhupada laughs) It is very nice process. This is recommended therefore, for this age. And others also will be benefited. You chant loudly. Others who are not accustomed, they will also. At least… Just like on the street, in the park, they say “Hare Krsna!” How they have learned? By hearing this chanting. That’s all. Sometimes the children, as soon as they see us, they say “Oh, Hare Krsna!” In Montreal the children, when I was walking on the street, all the children, the shopkeepers, the storekeepers, they will say “Hare Krsna!” And that’s all. So we have forced Hare Krsna within the mind. If you practice yoga, meditate, it may be beneficial for you, but this is beneficial for many others. Suppose something very good, you are enjoying yourself, some sweetballs — that is one stage. But if you distribute sweetballs, that is another stage. So by chanting on the road, on the street, you are distributing sweetballs. (laughter) You are not miser, that you are eating yourself. You are so liberal that you are distributing to others. Now chant, distribute. (laughter) (kirtana) Seattle, Oct 18, 1968

A few years ago, I had the privilege to visit our Amsterdam temple for a month. One day I was invited to give a speaking engagement at Utrecht University. In Canada over the years , I was accustomed to give an “Introduction to Krishna Consciousness” or “How I came to Krsna consciousness” type lecture at colleges and universities, so this was what I did.
After it was over, one professor publicly humbled me, and simultaneously, glorified Suhotra prabhu by saying to me ” compared to Suhotra Swami, who has giventhe lecture here in the past, your lecture was not very deeply phlosophical” I appreciated from her comment that it was a challenge to “fill the shoes ” of Suhotra prabhu, and come up to his high standard of academic excellence that even the conditioned souls could appreciate.
