Sun, 29 March 2020World Pandemic: Use Your Time Wisely
"All over the world, all devotees at this moment always think and are always afraid of COVID-19, coronavirus. We cannot do anything about it—when the time comes, we will have to leave our body. However, as many days as we may have, we must not waste our time! Now that all the devotees are always in their house, it is a good time—they can read many books such as Srimad Bhagavatam, Chaitanya-charitamrita and all our good books. They can concentrate their mind on Krishna consciousness and chant more rounds of the Holy Name. They can do more service in their houses."
