“You try to preach to someone about Krishna consciousness – but unless they chant Hare Krishna, it is impossible for them to actually understand what you’re talking about. Theoretically some people may be more adept at getting the idea, and others, they just completely bypass… but actually understanding comes when they chant Hare Krishna and taste even a drop of the spiritual intoxication, or happiness you get from experiencing a fraction of love for Godhead.”
