Four different ages have four different ways of achieving spiritual perfection. In the age of Satya Yuga it was meditation; in Treta Yuga - fire sacrifice; in Dvapara Yuga - worshiping the Lord in the temple; in Kali Yuga - congregational chanting of the holy name of the Lord. Kali Yuga is the most degraded of all the ages. In the Vedic scriptures it has been described as the age that is submerged in the ocean of sinful activities. However, this age has one great advantage -- just by chanting the holy name of the Lord one can become completely free from all sinful reactions and achieve highest spiritual perfection, that enables one to develop the most intimate loving relationship with the Supreme Personality of Godhead. 

     In order to bestow this mercy upon the most degraded living entities the Supreme Personality of Godhead Sri Krishna came as Sri Krishna Chaitanya Mahaprabhu and inaugurated the congregational chanting of the holy name of the Lord -- the Sankirtan movement. Although He distributed His most magnanimous mercy throughout the holy land of India He predicted that this movement would spread all over the world in every town and village. In order to fulfill that prediction, He sent one of his most intimate associates -- His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada to this world. It is due to his mercy that this Krishna Consciousness movement has miraculously spread all over the world within the short span of 10 years and it is continuing to spread all over the world.

     One such loyal follower of Srila Prabhupada, Rama Raya Das Brahmachari has dedicated himself continue Srila Prabhupada's legacy in the city of New York where Srila Prabhupada started the Sankirtan Movement about 51 years ago. New York city has gone through various turmoils due to the onslaught of Kali, but Rama Raya Prabhu was completely determined to push this Krishna consciousness movement in this city. For many years he single-handedly continued to perform this most sacred spiritual activity which known as Sankirtan Yagya. I am so happy to see that now Lord is awarding him so nicely by sending so many sincere devotees to support him to execute his mission and he is being appreciated worldwide by the sincere followers of Srila Prabhupada. As one of his sincere admirers, I wish him all the best in his very sincere endeavors to create the most wonderful good fortune for the people of the city of New York.
