Overflooding the World with the Holy Name!

"Somehow or other if you can engage them in chanting and dancing, the whole world will be united." [Srimad-Bhägavatam lecture, Bombay, December 27, 1974]

In the Caitanya Caritamrita Adi Lila 4.39-40 the mission of Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu is explained

"Thus with two intentions the Lord appeared with His devotees and tasted the nectar of prema with the congregational chanting of the holy name. Thus He spread kirtana even among the untouchables. He wove a wreath of the holy name and prema, with which He garlanded the entire material world".

"If the surface of the globe is over-flooded with the chanting of the Hare Krsna mantra, the people of the world will be very, very happy. (Purport to SB 4.24.11)

So let us overflood the world with the holy names and weave a sankirtan wreath around it.

- HH Janananda Gosvami
