2338) Whether I know Krsna Consciousness is already there in every one’s heart! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!
—————– Prabhupada: …stated in the Caitanya-caritamrta:
nitya-siddha krsna-bhakti sadhya kabhu naya
sravanadi-suddha-citte karaye udaya
The Krsna consciousness is a fact in everyone’s heart. It is already there. Otherwise how these Europeans and Americans, they’re taking to Krsna consciousness very seriously? So it is to be understood that Krsna consciousness was there already. By the process of hearing, sravanadi-suddha-citte, process of hearing... As Caitanya Mahaprabhu has recommended: ceto-darpana-marjanam param vijayate sri-krsna-sankirtanam [Cc. Antya 20.12]. Sri-krsna-sankirtanam is so auspicious that the chanting of this mantra awakens the dormant Krsna consciousness. —–————
