Everyone is originally Kṛṣṇa conscious. But this Kṛṣṇa consciousness has been covered, just as the sun is sometimes becomes covered by the clouds. But still the sun is there, in the same way we are originally God conscious or Kṛṣṇa consciousness. But we have forgotten that original consciousness. So Caitanya Mahāprabhu's instructions are for everyone.


By the grace of our Guru Mahārāja we have somehow been able to hear this message of Bhagavad-gītā and Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam. Before meeting Śrīla Prabhupāda our lives were very much enveloped in materialism and we were simply calculating how we could become advanced materially, thinking that we could become happy in life. But anyone who has tried simply to become happy through materialistic means knows that it is a very difficult path. In fact it is impossible to become happy materially alone. So by the grace of our Guru Mahārāja somehow we have been fortunate enough to hear this message of Kṛṣṇa consciousness.

Śrīla Prabhupāda came just in the nick of time because for many of us we had become very much frustrated in our materialistic endeavours and Prabhupāda delivered this message of Śrī Kṛṣṇa Caitanya Mahāprabhu. Caitanya Mahāprabhu's message is for everyone and it does not matter whether he is from India, or whether he is from the United States, whether he is from the Soviet Union. Caitanya Mahāprabhu's message is that everyone has a relationship with God, with Kṛṣṇa.

But that relationship has become forgotten and so it must be reawakened. Just like everyone, everyone is originally Kṛṣṇa conscious. But this Kṛṣṇa consciousness has been covered, just as the sun is sometimes becomes covered by the clouds. But still the sun is there, in the same way we are originally God conscious or Kṛṣṇa consciousness. But we have forgotten that original consciousness.
