04 March 2020 Sarvatra prachara haibe mora nama Today we have participants from 460 places. On one day in how many places chanting will take place? It is because of Caitanya Mahaprabhu. pṛthivīte āche yata nagarādi grāma sarvatra pracāra haibe mora nāma Translation In every town and village, the chanting of My name will be heard. [Caitanya Bhagvat] There will come a time when chanting will be taking place in all the places of the world. This is the prediction for this world. This was started 500 years ago. The Golden period started with the appearance of Caitanya Mahaprabhu and it will last for 10000 years. My name doesn’t mean My name, but it means the names of Caitanya Mahaprabhu. But we chant Hare Krishna. Lord Caitanya said that His name will spread all over the world then how this is possible? śrī-kṛṣṇa-caitanya, rādhā-kṛṣṇa nahe anya Translation Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu, being a combination of Kṛṣṇa and Rādhā, is non different from Rādhā-Kṛṣṇa combined. [Caitanya Bhagvat] He is not only Krsna, but He is Radha also. These are names of Radha and Krsna and Ra-dha’s name is first in that. Harinama has reached millions of places . This seems to be a little impossible. How is this possible in the Middle East, China where there is Atheism and Communism? The answer to that is that Srila Prabhupada went to a foreign county in 1965 as instructed by his spiritual master. Who would have believed it if in 1964 or ’65 someone have said that in the next 40-50 years this Harinama will reach various towns and villages. In 2020 there will be a Gaura Purnima festival and there will be 10000 devotees on Parikrama. Many devotees will chant on the zoom conference. There will be Ratha-yatra not only in New York, but many other places. All these things are happening. As the zoom conference is going on, devotees are walking on Parikrama and there are 700 Ratha-yatras. So many books are be-ing distributed. All such people will follow four regulative principles and Chinese people will also eat prasada. If only all such news would have been told to you in 1964 before Srila Prabhupada left for overseas, then would you have believed it ? What if we were told a few years back that in future on mataji from Noida will go to Ma-yapur and participate in Parikrama. Would you have believed it? When we go for preach-ing many youths say that they will join this Krishna Consciousness movement once they get old. But the Lord is attracting youths only and they have a bead bag in their hand. Ratha-yatra will take place in New York and how uncivilised the people of New York were? They were saying that the Lord is impersonal and so on. But now worship of Radha Krsna is taking place over there. Some Parikrama devotees are also attending zoom con-ference and hearing the japa talk. When Srila Prabhupada reached New York and was preaching over there, then a few peo-ple would gather around him and ask to show the image of Krsna as God. They would en-quire about the girl standing next to Krsna. They did not know about Radha Krsna and Si-ta Rama. They were so degraded that they were eating cow flesh, but after worshipping Radha Krsna, cow eaters have become cow protectors. Cow worshipping is taking place. Instead of drinking cow blood, now they are drinking cow urine. This all seems to be beyond our imagination. But by the mercy of Caitanya Mahāprabhu all these things are going on. So we have firm faith that in every village and town Harina-ma will spread out as the Lord earlier predicted. Harinama will spread in all towns and vil-lages and people will come from various places to Mayapur. Nama se Dhama tak Translation Name takes us to the Lord’s abode. We are transported back to Godhead and the Lord in the form of the holy name takes us back. Has it all come true? Yes, because it is the prediction of Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu. The impossible is already made possible. Impossible is a word in a fool’s dictionary. Therefore the Lord is making some prediction and He only make everything possible. We just gave a seminar at Mayapur ILS and the topic was the Bright Future of ISKCON and it was guaranteed. This is possible because it is the Lord’s prediction and it will sure-ly happen. This is the golden period. We need to take benefit of it. We need to jump in the street of Krishna Consciousness or Bhakti. jyot se jyot jaalatey chalo prem ki ganga bahatey chalo Light many lamps with the lamps you have and let this love of Ganga flow everywhere. Yesterday the heart surgery of Yasomatinandan Prabhu took place. Yesterday we had asked you to chant and pray so by your prayers the Lord has made his operation success-ful. Today is the first day of Gaura Bhagavat Katha. You can follow on ISCKON Pune.com , Facebook, YouTube. Many devotees are coming to Pune. Jay Panchali Mataji is reporting that her home is filled with guests. Many keep on doing something and don’t leave their homes. They don’t leave their comfort zone. There will be Katha in the morning and even-ing. Japa Zoom sessions will continue to take place. Instead of Japa talk Katha will take place at 8:00 AM. Prepare your consciousness to welcome Caitanya Mahaprabhu in the courtyard of your heart. Gaur Premanande Hari Haribol
