This Kali-yuga, this age of Kali, we are condemning so much. But even the demigods, they, I mean to say, highly eulogize this Kali-yuga. Why? Why? Oh, here is a great opportunity. Simply by chanting Hare Kṛṣṇa, yatra saṅkīrtanena. Yatra means in this Kali-yuga, simply by this saṅkīrtana movement, simply by chanting, sarva-svārtho 'bhilabhyate, all interest is served. Your material interest, your spiritual interest—every interest will be served.


Sarva-svārtho 'bhilabhyate. There are nice verse. You see? Here it is said, yatra saṅkīrtanenaiva. This Kali-yuga, this age of Kali, we are condemning so much. But even the demigods, they . . . I mean to say, highly eulogize this Kali-yuga. Why? Why? Oh, here is a great opportunity. Simply by chanting Hare Kṛṣṇa, yatra saṅkīrtanena. Yatra means in this Kali-yuga, simply by this saṅkīrtana movement, simply by chanting, sarva-svārtho 'bhilabhyate, all interest is served.

Your material interest, your spiritual interest—every interest will be served. Lord Caitanya also said, ihā haite sarva-siddhi haibe tomāra. Just . . . even if you are materially desiring something, that also will be fulfilled by simply chanting Hare Kṛṣṇa. It is such a nice thing. This is . . . therefore we call mahā-mantra. All . . .

pūrvavat likhi yabe guṇāvatāra-gaṇa
asaṅkhya saṅkhyā tāṅra, nā haya gaṇana
(CC Madhya 20.348)
cāri-yugāvatāre ei ta' gaṇana
śuni' bhaṅgi kari' tāṅre puche sanātana
(CC Madhya 20.349)

Now here is a very trick. Sanātana Gosvāmī, he was politician. He was minister. Now, when Lord Caitanya was describing about the incarnations, especially of the incarnation of the Kali-yuga, now he's asking, Sanātana Gosvāmī is asking to Lord Caitanya:

rāja-mantri-sanātana-buddhye bṛhaspati
prabhura kṛpāte puche asaṅkoca-mati
(CC Madhya 20.350)

He's asking very frankly, because he's very intelligent. He was minister.

ati kṣudra jīva muñi nīca, nīcācāra
kemane jāniba kalite kon avatāra?
(CC Madhya 20.351)

"My dear Sir, Lord Caitanya, I am the lowest of the lowest. I am very fool number one. So I may enquire from You that how can I understand that this is the incarnation of this age, Kali-yuga?"

prabhu kahe—"anyāvatāra śāstra-dvāre jāni
kalite avatāra taiche śāstra-vākye māni
(CC Madhya 20.352)

"Oh, why you are in confusion? As other incarnation are to be understood from the indication of the śāstras, similarly, we will have to understand from the indication of the śāstra who is the incarnation."

Sarvajña munira vākya—śāstra-'paramāṇa'
(CC Madhya 20.353)
