We do not require any qualification. If you want to be a karmi — karmi means pious action — then you will have to perform so many sacrifices, for which money is required and energy is required. That is very difficult in this age. If you want to be great philosopher, and if you want to realize yourself by the philosophical method, then you have to learn so many books of knowledge, philosophy, and speculate. That is also very difficult in this age. Similarly, if you want to perform yoga system, that is also very difficult in this age. You require so many quali…, previous qualifications. For becoming a learned philosopher you require so much previous qualification. For becoming a great pious actor, you require so much money for offering sacrifice. If you want to become a great yogi, then you have to learn this yama, niyama, asana, pranayama then pratyahara. That is also very difficult. But for coming to Krsna consciousness you don’t require any previous qualifications. That is the special advantage. Whatever you may be, that is all right. Our process you are seeing practically: we are inviting all friends and guests to come here. What is that process? The process is, “Please come here. Chant with us, dance with us, take a little prasadam and go home.” That’s all. We don’t ask you that you require this qualification or that qualification, that… No. Simply bhakti. Bhakti, this devotional service is so strong.
