Hare Kṛṣṇa. Hare is the energy of the Lord, God. God's energy is called Hare, and God is called Kṛṣṇa. So we are addressing both God and His energy because this..., there are varieties of energies of God. They have been summarized into three: the spiritual energy, the material energy and the marginal energy.
Arrival Speech -- Stockholm, September 5, 1973:

Guest (Swedish man): ...request Your Highness with a few word, what is Hare Kṛṣṇa?

Haṁsadūta: "What is Hare Kṛṣṇa?"

Prabhupāda: Hare Kṛṣṇa. Hare is the energy of the Lord, God. God's energy is called Hare, and God is called Kṛṣṇa. So we are addressing both God and His energy because this..., there are varieties of energies of God. They have been summarized into three: the spiritual energy, the material energy and the marginal energy. The marginal energy..., the marginal energy is we, living beings, and the material energy, this material world. So similarly, there is another world, which is made of spiritual energy. So this Hara means the spiritual energy. Now we are in the material energy. We have got this material body. But if we can please the Supreme Lord and His spiritual energy, we shall get next a spiritual body, and that is eternal, blissful, full of knowledge.

Guest: Do you have lots of members?

Prabhupāda: Yes, certainly. Don't you see?

Guest: How many?

Prabhupāda: Thousands.

Haṁsadūta: About five thousand all over the world.

Prabhupāda: Those are initiated. Otherwise there are many thousands, our admirers.

Guest: In all the countries.

Prabhupāda: All over the world. Yes.

Guest: Thank you very much. (break)

Prabhupāda: It is bluff? Who is that rascal?
