Be purified by hearing chanting then preach

    Posted on July 28, 2015

By hearing simply Srimad-Bhagavatam, by hearing chanting of Hare Krsna mantra, you will be purified. Nityam bhagavata-sevaya. Nasta-prayesu abhadresu nityam bhagavata-sevaya [SB 1.2.18]. We are opening centers all over the world just to give the people this opportunity, nityam bhagavata-sevaya.

Then, as soon as the heart is cleansed by hearing about Krsna... Caitanya Mahaprabhu recommends that: yare dekha, tare kaha krsna-upadesa [Cc. Madhya 7.128]. This Srimad-Bhagavatam is also krsna-upadesa because by hearing Srimad-Bhagavatam, you will be interested in Krsna: upadesa about Krsna. That is also krsna-upadesa, and the upadesa, instruction, given by Krsna, that is also krsna-upadesa.

So this is the mission of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, that you go and preach and make propaganda about krsna-upadesa. This is Krsna consciousness movement. We are teaching all our men how to spread krsna-upadesa, how to spread Krsna consciousness. Then anartha upasamam saksat. Then all the unwanted things he has contaminated will be finished. Then pure consciousness... Pure consciousness is Krsna consciousness.

(From Srila Prabhupada's class on Srimad-Bhagavatam 1.7.7 -- Vrndavana, April 24, 1975)
