Question: Most of our activities are personal like books, kirtan and studying. With government limiting association, how do we keep preaching? Should we instead use this for self-studying?

Jayapataka Swami:  In one sense, we can also use this time for studying, for chanting. But also we can use this opportunity to preach through the internet. Now, there are like 3 million people at any time on Skype. So you can preach to those people. You can use Facebook or Instagram and preach. BBT should actually come up with a system, how people can download books, as this is a good time to study spiritual books. And, Vaisesika had sent out some people to distribute books, and he said that all the people were very anxious, and they said, we don’t know what to do with our time! But some people said, leave the book at the porch, because they didn’t want any personal interaction. They left a donation in an envelope. But Vaisesika prabhu said that maybe it is too dangerous for the devotees. But people want books, they want something to do! So you can figure out how to do it in a safe way. People, they need to understand, that this material world will always have problems. If they engage in bhakti yoga, they can solve the problems. In the Kali Santarana Upanisad, there is a verse which says the Maha Mantra – Hare Krsna Hare Krsna Krsna Krsna Hare Hare, Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare. Iti sodasakam nam nam, these 16 names Kali kalmasa nasanam, they destroy all the evil effects of Kali yuga. Natah parataropayah sarva vedesu drsyate. There is no better alternative in all the Vedas! So give people something to do! Have them chant! Listen to the kirtan yoga! That way, purify the atmosphere. This is an air borne disease, so purify the air! Chant Hare Krsna! Haribol!
