Vedic culture is a culture of very gradual progress. Srila Prabhupada was often times using the example of a goldsmith, who with a fine little hammer is shaping an ornament, he said that is Vedic culture, a very refined system of purifying its members of society, very gradually little by little and then trying to bring a proper shape of conduct and character within a person. Unlike the Age of Kali, where such preliminary pre-requisites were not fulfilled and everyone is totally out of shape but the Sankirtan movement, Srila prabhupada compared it to the hammer of a blacksmith who with one blow,(one basic boff), kind of reshapes anything, irregardless where it is at. So that’s a little bit our process; it’s not gradual it is very revolutionary, it’s quite strong, its drastic, the way we are undergoing reformation…
