"Kirtana means both lecturing and chanting with music. The chanting with music is especially attractive for the mass of people, but talking from philosophical point of view on Krsna consciousness is also chanting. The whole Srimad-Bhägavatam is full of philosophical discussions and we are prepared to present our Krsna consciousness movement both ways, whichever is suitable in special circumstances.

If Mr. Renovich is interested only in philosophical discussions, we are prepared for that. But at the same time we are concerned mostly with the mass of people, therefore Hare Krsna kirtana is our life and soul. So there is no problem if Mr. Renovich is especially interested in scholarly philosophical discussions."

(SPL to Upendra, 14th August, 1968)
