"My opinion is that it is not necessary for us to utilize these different musical talents for spreading Krishna Consciousness. I would rather see people follow strictly the path of Lord Chaitanya and His Sankirtana devotees. We are using mridanga, karatala, that is enough. We are not musicians. We are Krishna bhaktas. Therefore we do not stress so much importance on these different musical talents. Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu is God Himself. Had He thought it would have been better to spread Krishna Consciousness by another way He would have done so. But no, simply with mridanga and karatala, traveling and chanting Hare Krishna, asking everyone to chant Hare Krishna, preaching simply Srimad-Bhagavatam philosophy, this is the process. There is no need for us to try and add anything to this simple method. It will only be a distraction. Therefore I request you to follow the simple path of Lord Chaitanya Mahaprabhu and help me spread this wonderful mission all over the world. Keep yourself pure and fixed up in Krishna Consciousness by following the basic principles that I have given; chanting 16 rounds daily, following the four regulative principles, rising early, attending mangala arati and classes etc. This is of the utmost importance."
