(Kadamba Kanana Swami, 15 March 2009, Introduction before Kirtan)
The holy name of Krsna is descending directly from the spiritual world. It is out of Krsna’s unlimited kindness that he appears amidst of us. However, due to the influence of false ego we are not able to fully relate to his name. Thus we relate to the name on the mental platform and the result is that our mind wanders in the midst of transcendental sound. We become restless and we cannot concentrate. But actually, we must surrender – surrender to the sound of kirtan and simply appreciate the name of Krsna as being Krsna, non-different from Krsna, that means the unlimited Supreme Lord, full of unlimited opulences, the all-merciful Supreme Lord, who has kindly come to us!
