One devotee said, “Srila Prabhupada, is it true that only the devotees who are doing sankirtan are the pure devotees of Krsna?” And Prabhupada said, “ Who is not doing sankirtan?” This whole movement is based on sankirtan, who is not doing sankirtan?
Everyone is combining together to co-operate with the one, single purpose of spreading sankirtan. If one person does not cook the prasadam how will the devotees go out to distribute the prasadam?
Every person is combining, may be one person is taking greater risk than another. Whoever puts themselves out the most to do devotional service, taking shelter of guru and Krsna, he gets the best. He can get more mercy. But who isn’t doing sankirtan in this movement?
The whole movement is based upon spreading sankirtan and everyone should have that preaching mood. How can I cooperate with the desire of Srila Prabhupada, to work as a gear, as a nut, as a bolt, as a wheel in the huge machinery of ISKCON for the purpose of preaching the sankirtan movement? The whole machine is going to that destination only. To spread Krsna Caitanya Mahaprabhu’s message everywhere.HH Jayapataka Swami Lecture – Srimad Bhagavatam
