Then Krsna thought, I want to bring all living beings to the spiritual world where they can be eternally happy, but I don’t want them to wait so long, therefore I will bring the spiritual world right here to the material world. (sanskrit) In the form of this sankirtan movement all the wealth of the spiritual world is already present. Thus here, right now, we can already be free from the material world. Right now, we can be in the spiritual world – internally at least. Externally, maybe not, but internally we can be in the spiritual world, simply by always remembering Krsna. That is the purpose of all spiritual practices – to always remember Krsna and to never forget Him.
