Srila Prabhupada…”Just like your radio message, television sound, they cannot go beyond this earthly planet, at most. But there is sound which can penetrate the whole universe and go to the spiritual world. Sound is all-pervading, that is a fact, scientific fact. If that sound is potent, then it can penetrate even this material sky and go to the spiritual sky and go to Kṛṣṇa directly. That sound is Hare Kṛṣṇa.
Golokera prema-dhana, hari-nāma-saṅkīrtana, rati nā janmilo kene tāya. I’ve given that. He has translated very nice, Hayagrīva. Golokera prema-dhana. This is descended from the spiritual platform, Goloka Vṛndāvana, hari-nāma-saṅkīrtana, this Hare Kṛṣṇa. Rati nā janmilo kene tāya. “I have no attachment for these things.” I have got attachment for radio sound, or television sound, so many sounds, but I have no attachment for the supreme sound which is coming down from the Goloka Vṛndāvana. Golokera prema-dhana, hari-nāma-saṅkīrtana, rati nā janmilo kene… saṁsāra-biṣānale, dibā-niśi hiyā jwale. “In this material world, I am, my heart is always burning on account of so many miseries.” Juṛāite nā koinu upāya. “But I could not find out the way how to get out of it. This sound vibration will get you out from the blazing fire of this material condition. This sound, harer nāma harer nāma harer nāmaiva kevalam [Cc. Ādi 17.21]. Chant always, everything will be perfectly done.”
