“Kṛṣṇa Caitanya Mahāprabhu wanted that the people, the living entities should be awakened, should be brought to that plane, platform of Kṛṣṇa consciousness that Kṛṣṇa personally gave when He was present, when God was walking on this Earth. The Supreme Person was glancing over the trees, was walking on the grass, everything that came in contact with the Lord, immediately became ecstatic, became evolved to the highest level irregardless of the body they were in, whether it was a plant body or a beast body, or aboriginal body, or whether it was a most highly civilized human body.”
