“To awaken conditioned souls to their eternal position as a servitor of the Lord, preachers meet with many adventures and challenges. Five hundred years ago, Lord Caitanya’s movement went through similar trials. To become an ‘employee’ of ISKCON’s Nama Hatta program means to assume a role in the Lord’s transcendental pastimes. That part, however humble it may be, is directly linked to Caitanya Mahaprabhu’s eternal sankirtana movement.
Participating in these activities is preparation for being transferred to the Lord’s pastimes in Goloka Vrindavana. By Caitanya Mahaprabhu’s mercy, we do not have to wait until we reach the spiritual world before getting the sublime nectar of the sankirtana movement. We can taste the nectar even while living in this world, simply by following the principles given by Lord Caitanya and thoroughly explained by Srila Prabhupada. The marketplace of the Holy Name is there as a service for everyone.”
