Radhanath Swami on Sankirtan

Sankirtan generally means the loud chanting and glorification of the Holy Names but is not restricted to this alone. It includes any other activity that we might do to assist great souls in glorifying the holy name. Thus, whether we clean toilets, or give a discourse to ten thousand people, if we do it as a sacrifice for the pleasure of Krishna, then that’s also sankirtan – the chanting of the Holy Names.

  2. This is so motivating cause not all members of the congregation are frontline preachers. So whether we are in the frontline or at the back, doing our service for the pleasure of Krishna is Sankirtan! Thank you Radhanath Swami!

  7. Real Sankirtan as stated by Radhanath Swami, is ultimately to execute devotional activities as a sacrifice for the pleasure of Lord Krishna
