. Bhakti Vedanta Prabhupad
says that engaging one selves in Kirtans of Krishna
will always get us closer to Him and engaging in material activities like newspapers, radio’s will deviate us from the love of Govinda
kīrtanera ańga śudhu nahe ḍhāka ḍhol
ādhunik dhārāya nahe kīrtaner rol
hari sevāra anukūla sakala-i mādhava
tri-jagater bhoktā hoy ekalā yādava
māyār vaibhava yata radior śabda
kīrtanera dvārā sadā koro tāhā stabdha
māyā kackaci saba saḿvādera patra
kīrtana koroho tāhe jagate sarvatra
(1) The component of kirtana is not always through drums. The sound of kirtana is not this modern system.
(2) Anything favorable for devotional service is all nondifferent from Madhava. The only enjoyer of the three worlds is Yadava.
(3) Maya’s pride and joy is in the words emanating from the radio. Destroy these words through the means of kirtana, always.
(4) Maya’s is all these newspapers. Preach that throughout the whole world.
