Water is polluted, air is polluted, ether is polluted. Everything is dying by pollution. A day will come when the whole ocean will be polluted with poisons, and if anyone will eat fish or any food from the sea, he will die. In the name of saving the agriculture, people are spraying poisons everywhere to kill insects, but that poison comes in the grains and thus all are polluted. You will eat those grains, you will become mad; so many diseases will come, and you will all die.
If you are abusing anyone, criticizing anyone, or quarreling with anyone, these sounds will evaporate in the air and it will go throughout the whole universe. If you are speaking any nonsense, it will not go in vain; it will go throughout the whole world by air.
If you take a stone and throw it into a pond, some waves will be created and they will touch all ends of the pond. This universe is like that pond, and air is everywhere in the universe. When one chants:
Hare Kṛṣṇa Hare Kṛṣṇa Kṛṣṇa Kṛṣṇa Hare Hare
Hare Rāma Hare Rāma Rāma Rāma Hare Hare
this will evaporate and create so many waves of air, and those waves will touch everywhere—up to the ends of the world—moving here and there and purifying the entire universe from all these pollutions.
