Ocassion: Wood Stock Festival, 2007 
Courtesy: Candrasekhar Acarya Das.
Essence: “I don’t think it is by chance that the weather man’s prediction has been completely devasted and it is bright and sunny out. There must be something, some higher providence involved in this. So they have done their part, they are great devotees, we have to do our part. It appears our Sankirtan party is little over 500. It includes devatas also, so it is about 30 million devotees. So it is very good. Stage is set. We are on the verge of huge maha yagna – unprecedented. You should also enjoy this yagna..A Vaishnava his/her joy is to see people experience the same bliss they are experiencing. That is going to happen in a huge scale. Through out the day, you should stop a minute, step back a little bit and think how pleased Srila Prabhupada must be seeing so many people tasting prasadam, hearing Holy Names..,seeing pure unadulterated Krishna Consciousness presented on a big stage.”
