You can forget all your worries, be peaceful in your mind, no one is allowed to bother you with anything. Just be cozy with Krishna. And Krishna is not different from His name. Does that not sound wonderful? Maybe it should become a Union claim. It would have to be a claim of the Krishna Union. It is our claim. Please chant two hours of Hare Krishna Maha Mantra every day and just see what will happen in your life! This is self-development. This is self-realization.

To get best results, of course, one also has to follow the four regulative principles of yoga discipline.

1 ) No illicit sex. Sex is allowed, but illicit sex is not allowed.

2 ) No gambling

3 ) No intoxication, including cigarettes, coffee and tea

4 ) no eating of meat, fish or eggs

Seriously, in these dangerous times, two hours of daily peace and tranquility represent a real asset in life. Why not take advantage of the opportunity? When I go on preaching tour, I find that one of the greatest assets of the Australian people is their absolute courtesy. It is really a delight to deal with them, even though our personal views and philosophies may differ. That is just astounding! And when I ask them to please chant the Maha Mantra Hare Krishna they mostly comply. I lead them through the chanting half after half.  The other day at Bunnings, when I asked him to chant, the young gentleman mentioned that he came in contact with Hare Krishna previously in school. He did not at all hesitate to chant. Others mention “My sweet Lord” by George Harrison. Sometimes it is played on the radio, just on the right time.  The CUA lady chanted Hare Krishna Maha Mantra on the phone. And the ANZ phone employee mostly visit the Hare Krishna temple in Melbourne, Albert Park.

There is an important shastra passage in this respect:

Madhya 7.102

TEXT

yäre dekhe, täre kahe,—kaha krishna-näma
ei-mata ’vaishnava’ kaila saba nija-gräma

WORD FOR WORD RENDITION

yäre dekhe—whomever he meets; täre—to him; kahe—he says; kaha krishna-näma—kindly chant the Hare Krishna mantra; ei-mata—in this way; vaishnava—devotees of the Supreme Personality of Godhead; kaila—made; saba—all; nija-gräma—his own village.

TRANSLATION

Such an empowered person would request everyone and anyone—whomever he saw—to chant the holy name of Krishna. In this way, all the villagers would also become devotees of the Supreme Personality of Godhead.

PURPORT

In order to become an empowered preacher, one must be favored by Lord Sri Caitanya Mahäprabhu or His devotee, the spiritual master. One must also request everyone to chant the mahä-mantra. In this way, such a person can convert others to Vaishnavism, showing them how to become pure devotees of the Supreme Personality of Godhead.

My point is that Australian society is already saturated with Hare Krishna. If we keep on saturating it more and more with Hare Krishna, at some point there will be a Hare Krishna explosion, as there was Hare Krishna explosion in USA in the seventies under the incentive of Srila Prabhupada. Better be present and ready to take part in the Australian Hare Krishna explosion fun.
