While listening to any lectures by His Holiness Tamal Krishna Goswami, please keep in mind that these lectures were given over three decades. The times changed and therefore some of the comments are obviously relevant to that point in time only. However, at the same time, most of the content is inspired from the eternal teachings of the Vedic Literatures and Gaudiya Vaisnava sampradaya (disciplic succession). In that light, the messages on these lectures have eternal instructions that can benefit listeners regardless of time, place, and circumstances.

Description: Several Question & Answer sessions which spontaneously evolved during one of His Holiness's recent visits, first to the Philippines and then to Hong Kong. His Holiness himself found these sessions so meaningful that he requested that a book be made out of them to use as a preaching tool. In the Manila gatherings he requests the devotees to voice the most asked questions by the local people (mostly Christians) and then he answers them very nicely. On the Hong Kong tapes a Vaisnava forum of three stalwart preachers and unique personalities, namely His Holiness, H.H. Umapati Swami and H.H. Narasimha Maharaja, answers various questions from the audience. After a question is raised each of them give their response to it. In this way a thorough understanding is gained and the mood becomes increasingly blissful. But the highlight of this series comes when suddenly a die-hard impersonalist pops up his head and tries to create a stir by his challenge: "Why look for Krishna? We are all Krishna!" For a moment the devotees hold their breaths. It somewhat reminds one of a demon entering the scene to disturb Krishna's lila. But being well-versed in Srila Prabhupada's teachings and equipped with a great sense of humor, His Holiness and the other Vaisnavas effortlessly, methodically, unquestionably and yet politely tear apart all of his arguments and soundly defeat his philosophy. Hear the tapes and learn how the great souls preach.
