Jayapataka Swami: Chant Hare Krsna and get many people to chant. Get people to participate in online chanting and also broadcast the message of the Srimad Bhagavatam. In the Kali Santarana Upanisad, it says Hare Krsna Hare Krsna Krsna Krsna Hare Hare, Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare. iti sodasakam nam nam kali kalmasa nasanam, natah parataropayah sarva vedesu drsyate. By chanting these 16 names all the evils, all the problems of Kali yuga, contaminations are destroyed. Somehow the chanting of the Lord’s names is the best thing. Also I was saying how this virus came from the animals, so we should give up eating amish, at least for some time, give up eating meat, fish eggs, especially meat. And then by doing this and chanting Hare Krsna, chanting the name of God, we can see a significant change. Other than that, remind devotees to keep clean and observe the rules. That slows down the pandemic, but it doesn’t in itself cure it. But chanting Hare Krsna can change the karma of the whole world. If we have bad karma then some people are going to perish, if we change the karma, by chanting the holy names, then we will have auspicious results.
