(Kadamba Kanana Swami, 30 June 2013, Vrndavana, India, Srimad Bhagavatam 6.16.34)
The nice thing about the 24-hour kirtan is that you guys are not alone. First of all, these days cameras are on your face and it is obvious that you are not alone! They (cameramen) block the views sometimes, don’t they? They sit there, in front of Krsna-Balarama. It is a bit intense with them blocking all the darshan. With these cameras here now, you are really chanting for the camera. You are sitting there, smiling into the camera. “Who’s playing? Tune in…” provide a schedule so fans can click in and you can see how many fans you have.
That is an interesting part about Aindra Dasa; he never wanted that because if he wanted, he could have travelled. Everyone would have paid his ticket to anywhere and his fame as a kirtan star would have reached great heights. But no, he wanted to be here and chant for the pleasure of the deities. Of course, he became a kirtan star anyway but that is another matter. That was not his interest, his interest was to chant for Krsna’s pleasure!
