Jayapataka Swami: I don’t know why when you preach, you don’t feel connected to Krsna? Actually, the only way to preach is by being a transparent medium of the Lord. So you should feel a very strong connection, if you are preaching the right way. Generally, by preaching, you get rid of all the offences very quickly. So preaching may be a hundred times more powerful. It is nice to meditate on the Lord by making flower garlands or making jewelry, but if you are making devotees, the Lord appreciates that most! He says in the 18th chapter of Bhagavad-gita, that His dearest devotee is that who is preaching His glories! So I don’t know why you don’t feel connected to Krsna which speaking about Krsna, but maybe you can do both the services, until you should also feel connected to Krsna, when you are carrying His message. I feel connected to Krsna while giving these classes! Ha! Ha! Haribol!
