This consciousness is called Kṛṣṇa consciousness or God consciousness. Unless we come to that platform there is no question of peace and prosperity. Just like a madman unless he is cured from his madness he cannot be happy there is no question of peace and prosperity. The disease must be cured. Similarly, this bodily concept of life is a material disease. So, our movement, this Kṛṣṇa consciousness movement is not a new hobby or something introduced new. It is very old. It was spoken by Lord Kṛṣṇa himself in the Bhagavad-gītā 5,000 years ago and before that also this philosophy was spoken by Kṛṣṇa to the sun god and if we take that calculation it comes to some 40 millions of years ago. So it is not a new thing, it is the oldest cultural thing God consciousness. I am part and parcel of God, you are part and parcel of God. So our duty is to revive our original activity and then go back to home back to Godhead. This is the sum and substance of this Kṛṣṇa consciousness movement and anyone can perform it, it is very easy. The preliminary method is to chant the holy name of God. You can chant if you have got any name of God you can chant that. Not that you have to chant Hare Krishna if you have got any other name you can chant.
By chanting the holy name of God gradually your dirty things within the heart will be cleansed and you will see properly your constitutional position and then you will act accordingly and then your life will be happy and prosperous. This is the sum and substance of this Kṛṣṇa consciousness movement. We are trying to preach this culture all over the world not only by this chanting Hare Krishna mantra but those who are philosophers, scientists they can read our books. We have got 60 volumes of books like this to make people understand what is Kṛṣṇa.
So, don’t think that it is a sentimental movement if one is very highly educated, advanced in science and philosophy they can understand this movement by reading this book. Otherwise it is very simple, chant Hare Krishna mantra and gradually you understand the whole thing. Thank you very much.
