Kadamba Kanana Swami and a group of devotees performed Kirtan in an African township. The Nama Hatta programme was held in a small house full of enthused devotees including young children who really loved dancing! After the wild kirtan, Maharaja gave a small talk (below) which was translated in Zulu Language for the Nama Hatta members.
So in this world there are so many different people and they all speak different languages. So I’m in a country very far away and therefore I don’t speak your language but all the people of the world speak one language and that is the Hare Krishna Mahamantra – because it doesn’t matter: the people from America, the people from Africa or the people from China – they all like the chanting of the Hare Krishna Mahamantra.
We cannot speak to each other because we don’t know each other’s names and languages but still we can have a nice time together and become friends together when we chant Hare Krishna – because this chanting of Hare Krishna touches the soul.
It comes from the heart –this chanting of Hare Krishna brings love out of our heart: so therefore by chanting Hare Krishna everyone becomes happy.
It was nice to be here and do some Kirtana together, we will come again for more Kirtana.
(Crowd applauds and chant “Haribol!”)
