Chanters are honored
The Gosvamis were very much fond of doing welfare activities for the general people, just like this movement. This movement is the greatest welfare activities in this world. Lokanamhita-karinau. It is beneficial for all kinds of human being. Nana-sastra-vicaranaika-nipunau sad-dharma-samsthapakaulokanamhita-karinau tri-bhuvanemanyau. So if we execute this Krsna consciousness movement, following the footsteps of the Gosvamis, then tri-bhuvanemanyau, you will be honored in the three worlds, wherever you go. Just like I am Indian, but you are honoring me. Why? Have I bribed you with my Indian money, currency? I came with forty rupees only, had no money. Why? Because you are having some message of Krsna consciousness. That is the state of being honored. Similarly, just like this time when I went to India, all my American students-forty students are still there — they're being honored very nicely everywhere. In every city — Calcutta, Bombay, Benares, Amritsar. Why? Many American tourists go there. They are not honored. But why these boys are honored? Only for this krsnot-kirtana-gana-nartana. They are chanting Hare Krsna mantra. So not only… This is the process. Any country you go, if you are strictly adhering to the rules and regulation and chanting sixteen rounds, that is your spiritual strength, and following the prohibitive rules, then you will be honored everywhere. Any part of the world you go, you'll be honored. It is not very difficult to chant sixteen rounds and following the regulative principles, but if you follow strictly, rigidly, you'll get spiritual strength and you'll be honored all over the world. Just take this secret. They'll not ask you to know how far you are educated, or that you have passed your M.A. examination or Ph.D. No. They will be charmed by this krsnot-kirtana-gana-nartana.
