The Krishna consciousness movement is meant to help transfer souls out of this material atmosphere into the spiritual atmosphere, where life is eternal, full of knowledge and full of pleasure. The means for this transfer is kirtan: Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna, Hare Hare/ Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare.

This sound vibration is not material, but comes down from the spiritual world like radio waves in the sky, and if we have a receiver, we shall be able to catch them and make them manifest. The transcendental sound vibration of the Lord is coming down from the spiritual sky, and as soon as we come in contact with it, we come in contact with Krishna. as soon as we chant Hare Krishna, we are elevated to the spiritual platform, and all mental, intellectual and sensual problems are immediately solved, because on the spiritual platform there is no birth, death, old age or disease.

The soul is unaffected by these changes; only our absorption in the bodily identity causes us to feel happiness and distress arising from bodily changes. A sleeping man creates mental bodies in his dreams. He may see his head being chopped off, or himself falling from a bridge, or himself embracing a beautiful woman. Sometimes the sleeping man even discharges semen, although there is no beautiful woman—he is simply dreaming. While sleeping, a dream causes us happiness and distress, although the dream has no substantial reality. Similarly, in this material condition, or bodily concept of life, we are dreaming, "I am this body; this is my wife; these are my children; these are my friends; these are my countrymen; this is my house; this is my bank balance." However, this lifetime has no substantial reality, no permanent existence. It is temporary, compared to a child's sand castle. With the rising of the tide, his work is washed away. We cannot keep back the ocean. Sometimes children try to restrain the water, but it comes closer every minute. The tide of time dissolves everything—whatever and whomever we see here today. In time—either today, tomorrow or after a hundred years—we shall cease to exist. The body will be dissolved into ashes or earth and vanish, but within the body there is the soul.

"That which pervades the entire body is indestructible. No one is able to destroy the imperishable soul."—Bhagavad-gita 2.17

The essence of Krishna consciousness is this transcendental sound vibration: Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna, Hare Hare/ Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare.

Chant Hare Krishna and experience this transcendental sound vibration. Get in touch with Krishna and be Krishna conscious. Be happy. Everyone should be happy. No one can be happy without Krishna, because everyone is part and parcel of Krishna. As my hand is part of this body, similarly, the soul is part of Krishna. By vibrating the name of Krishna, we immediately come in touch with Krishna. If we touch an electric wire, we touch the powerhouse. The powerhouse may be one thousand miles away, but if we touch the live wire, we'll be touching the powerhouse. We hear our friend on the telephone from London through sound vibration. Although he is in London and we are in Seattle, we communicate by sound, and thus we are together. We can pick up vibrations from a radio station even without wires on our receiver. These things are possible on the material platform. On the spiritual platform they are perfectly applicable. There is no barrier for the soul. Transcendental means no time, no space. Everything is possible on the spiritual platform. To chant Hare Krishna means to be in contact with Krishna, and as soon as we contact Krishna, all our problems—mental, sensual and intellectual—will be solved immediately, and we shall become free from all anxieties. One who is Krishna conscious never laments anything; nor does he desire to have anything. If we want to be actually free, independent and joyful, we must become Krishna conscious.
