Being Attracted to Krishna

When our hearts are softened by being purified by devotional service, we will be naturally attracted to Krishna.

Purifying Our Consciousness

So this modern way of life — now we have electricity and TVs and people spend hours, instead of chanting Hare Krishna they are watching TV, spoiling their life, and having all these bad vibrations pumped into their brain. Day after day they are watching murder, rape and so many horrible things on TV. And how it pollutes the consciousness! If we chant Hare Krishna, it purifies the consciousness. Prabhupada wanted these [farm] communities, where people could live simply and chant Hare Krishna — in an ideal way.

Purification

The Ganges, emanating from the toe of Lord Vishnu, purifies the three worlds, the upper, middle and lower planetary systems.  Similarly, when one asks questions about the pastimes and characteristics of Lord Vasudeva, Krishna, three varieties of men are purified : the speaker or preacher, he who inquires, and the people in general who listen.
