There is always more to do to help in the missionary efforts of our beloved Srila Prabhupada. “Every town and village” means there is plenty still to do. We do not have to wait for others to give us an OK to do something important to spread this movement. Srila Prabhupada once said “this Sankirtan movement is man’s last chance in Kali Yuga for God consciousness”. We can individually open a small center anywhere in the world single handedly and if we are sincere, Krsna will help.

Prabhupada: “if a sincere soul goes out and opens a center in any part of the world, Krishna will help him in all respects. Without being empowered by Krishna, nobody can preach Krishna consciousness. It is not academic qualification or financial strength that helps in these matters, but it is sincerity of purpose which helps us always.

In this way you will follow my example as I did in the beginning at 26 Second Ave. That is preaching, cooking, writing, talking, chanting, everything one man’s show. I never thought about the audience. I was prepared to chant if there was no man to hear me. The principle of chanting is to glorify the Lord and not to attract a crowd.

If Krishna hears nicely then He will ask some sincere devotees to gather in such place. Therefore, be advised that thousands of centers may be started if we find out a sincere soul for each and every center. We do not require more men to start. If there is one sincere soul that is sufficient to start a new center. Let us remain sincere to Krishna and His bona fide representative and we are sure to carry out our mission successfully. Hope you are well.”

Your ever well-wisher,

A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami
