Non verbatim and improved Vyasapuja 2017 extract:
There are seemingly mundane expressions of beauty that cannot fail to remind us of Krishna, as per His words in Bhagavad-Gita As It Is 10.41:
yad yad vibhuutimat sattvam
srimad uurjitam eva vaa
tat tad evaavagaccha tvam
“Everything opulent that may exist within the universe and simultaneously stirs up strong positive feelings within one’s heart , all these manifestations should be understood as only a part-fragment manifestation of Krishna ‘s opulence. Actually they are born of Krishna’s opulence.”
I have many deams. In this respect my recurring dream it to see the Canadian singer Celine Dion (and the swedish group ABBA as well) sing for Krishna, just as George Harrison sang “My sweet Lord” for Krishna. Celine has such a very dynamic personality, she is an excellent singer and has sung for Christ in the past. So why should she not sing for Krishna as well? Etymologicaly speaking, the two names Christ and Krishna are directly related. Because of her wonderful God given talents, it will be a great success. Many, many people I meet on book distribution quote the Hare-Krishna-George-Harrison episode. It has tremendous effect! In this context and just the other day (31 December 2021, in Mooloolaba, Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia) a typically Australian tall, broad-shouldered gentleman traffic controller astounded me. ( Later on I met a taller 2.02 meter gentleman of german descent, just amazing! All things and humans develop taller in Australia. It is a superior atmosphere. It is the greenhouse effect. Most of the time we live like in a greenhouse without even realizing it. Things grow well in a greenhouse. Please note: I am not talking about the polution induced greenhouse. I am talking about the greenhouse between the nothern sub-tropical regions and the southern sub-tropical regions, passing through the equator.) This gentleman traffic controller KNEW BY HEART the Hare Krishna Maha-Mantra. That means George Harrison is his initiating Guru. George initiated this gentleman into the chanting of Hare Krishna maha-mantra, as he initiated many others by his singing of My Sweet Lord. All glories to the departed George Harrison!
“Is it not possible to have a small temple in George’s house so you can engage in temple worship? That is necessary. If there is a small temple there, then you and your wife and others can be nicely engaged. I think George does not require to become my formal disciple because he is already more than my disciple. He has sympathy for my movement and I have all blessings for him. He can easily spare that chapel for developing it into a nice Krishna Consciousness temple. We do not want any proprietorship right, but we want simply to utilize the nice place into a nice temple.”

CELINE DION, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE SING FOR KRISHNA.
