In this age of Kaliyuga nobody understands philosophy much. But everyone understands chanting dancing & prasadam

One time our Guru Maharaj His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada was at a sadhu sammelan here in India where so many big big gurus and sadhus and acharayas of different lines, they were all on a stage giving talks and there were thousands of people in the audience. Everyone was assigned 5 minutes. But you know what happens when you give sadhu 5 minutes. Their 5 minutes is not according to clocks. They all feel that we have the best philosophy so what is use of anyone else speaks except me. So each one was speaking long long philosophy and the people and audience were becoming like some of you tonight -very sleepy, sleepy and bored. And then one sadhu then another then next, another next another next and the people were thinking when will this end. It is also not polite to get up and walk out. So Srila Prabhupada was the most famous of all sadhus that was to speak. He had travelled all around the world and spread sanathan dharma what nobody else had done and he had so many of his disciples so when it came to Srila Prabhupada’s turn to speak, so then he told everyone to get up and dance and chant. He told everyone ‘I am sure you are all tired of hearing philosophy just get up and start dancing and chanting. Everyone began to chant the holy name Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna Hare Hare/Hare Rama Hare Rama, Rama Rama Hare Hare. Srila Prabhupada explained to everyone very quickly ‘in this age of Kaliyuga nobody understands philosophy much. But everyone understands chanting dancing & prasadam’. So after the Kirtana that was end of the program and there were dozens of great great yogis, gurus and sadhus on the stage and everyone was coming to take the dust from the Prabhupada’s lotus feet because he gave them Krishna.
