He would inform Sanatana about the location and dimensions of the spiritual planets and about the identity and activities of their denizens as precisely as one might describe the continents and nations of this earth.
And anyone who goes to the city of Navadvipa, on the western bank of the Ganges, will surely be struck by the lack of cleanliness and organization. This was Sripada Sankaracarya, who appeared in A.
I shall personally inaugurate the religion of the age'nama sankirtana, the congregational chanting of the holy name. People begin to slaughter animals for food; they become more and more enslaved by drugs; they lose all sexual restraint.
