Auspiciousness - an essential subject
Rupa Gosvami says auspicity is that which spreads for everyone, in all parts of the world. That is auspicity; something which is not partial. In social sciences and humanitarian activities, there is partiality for a certain section of people in society. However, the chanting of the Hare Kṛṣṇa mantra is meant for all living entities and it awakens the dormant Kṛṣṇa consciousness in them. In relation to the topic of auspiciousness, the Srimad Bhagavatam states 'The topics of Lord Kṛṣṇa are so auspicious that they purify the speaker, the hearer and the inquirer. They are compared to the Ganges waters, which flow from the toe of Lord Kṛṣṇa. Wherever the Ganges waters go, they purify the land and the person who bathes in them. Similarly, kṛṣṇa-kathā, or the topics of Kṛṣṇa, are so pure that wherever they are spoken, the place, the hearer, the inquirer, the speaker and all concerned become purified.' That is the essence of auspiciousness.
