Why do you want to go on world tour? People everywhere are doing the same thing - eating, sleeping, mating and defending - each in some slightly different way, but same substance is there. It is better if you want travel, you can travel to preach and spread this Krishna Consciousness to the suffering humanity at large.

November 11

If you simply hear about God, then you will see God by hearing. That is... Because there is cloud of dirtiness within our heart. Unless that dirtiness is cleansed, we can't perceive God. Therefore this process of chanting Hare Krishna mantra is described by Sri Caitania Mahaprabhu, ceto-darpana marjanam (Cc. Antya 20.12) "cleansing the mirror of the heart". Just like unless you cleanse the mirror which is full of dust, you can't see your face very nicely; similarly, unless you cleanse your heart very nicely, or in other words, unless your heart is cleansed of all sinful reaction, you can't understand what is God. That is not possible.

Srimad Bhagavatam 1.2.6, Delhi, November 11, 1973

November 10

There two ways of association - by vani and by vapuh. Vani means words, and vapuh means physical presence. Physical presence is sometimes appreciable and sometimes not, but vani continues to exist eternally.

Just like a diseased person, the more he comes back to his health it becomes pleasing more and more; similarly, the more we come Krishna Consciousness, certainly it will be pleasing, because Krishna is the Reservoir of all pleasure.
