The Krishna consciousness movement is presenting a scientific program for the respiritualisation of all of human society. Although man has made rapid material progress, there is a need for a spiritual method by which all men can become one in peace, friendship and prosperity through a common cause. The greatest cause for all men is devotional service to the Supreme Personality of Godhead, and this is being introduced all over the world by the disciples of His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada in a simple, practical and universal way that can be accepted by men of any race, religion or nationality.
Simply we ask one thing: chant Hare Krishna two hours per day! Just by doing this one thing, all your desires, both material and spiritual, will be fulfilled. There is no charge, and it is not illegal. You can chant anywhere. Nothing to lose, all to gain!
Become a two-hour link in the chain to circle the globe by performance of Nam Hatta World Sankirtan. Make your home, office or business a chain link in the 24-hour, seven days a week Nam Hatta Sankirtan concert. Engage your friends, workers and devotees to chant two hours daily and distribute prasadam.
We envision three- to four-hour concerts, beginning and ending interlinked so that kirtan is going on uninterruptedly around the world, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year, till it becomes a part of the life of this world.
Traveling World Sankirtan Party does not mean we as physical bodies must necessarily travel, but that the sound vibration must travel around the world 24 hours a day, every day of the year.
His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada had a great desire to see the World Sankirtan Party take shape. And it was due to the chanting in the streets and other public venues that people all over the world got to hear the Hare Krishna maha-mantra, for which the International Society for Krishna Consciousness became known as the Hare Krishna movement. The following words of Srila Prabhupada were written to myself in letters:
Regarding ‘World Sankirtan Party’, now the best of my students interested in Sankirtan, namely Mukunda, Tamal and yourself, are now in Europe, so I hope in the very near future you shall organize a very grand World Sankirtan Party and make a tour the world over and if you like I can also go with you.
Personally I still maintain the idea of a World Sankirtan Party, but such things, at the present moment, are a dream only. But one day maybe it will come out successful.
The purpose of ‘World Sankirtan Party’ will be to establish a center in each and every city and village of the world. I do not mean a concert party or a musical party that may go to a city, have some performances and collect some money without any permanent effect. For this purpose the ‘World Sankirtan Party’ should consist of members who can impress spiritual ecstasy in the hearts of the people so that some of them may come forward and agree to establish a center where the Sankirtan may go on continually.
