During this month of Kārtika, everyone was engaged in listening to hari-kathā four or five times a day. Bhajana and kathā would begin from three in the morning and continue until ten in the night. We went to the best places on the whole planet. These places we went to are the highest places even in Goloka Vṛndāvana. All of you have heard so much hari-kathā. We cannot satisfy you all with my management. We cannot give you the mahā-prasādaṁ that you take in your countries. We cannot satisfy you all by adequate accommodation. We cannot satisfy you all in any respect. But, there is one thing that we can give you and that is hari-kathā. Śrīla Svāmī Mahārāja used to give you all this hari-kathā before. The hari-kathā we speak is what we have heard from the disciplic ācāryas. We have only explained their kathā.
