Causeless Mercy (#38)
Prison Preaching
by Rajsuya das

Usually we preach about the Supreme Power of Godhead (Lord Krishna) in different ways to different sections of society by our own means and way through kirtan, lectures, visiting door-to-door, etc. In this way we only preach to limited sections of society. But in reality we don't cover hundred percent of the people in general. No doubt we often succeed in emphasizing them to make them spiritualists. As we all know, the majority of people are indulged in materialist life and some time we have to face much problems to get them out from this materialistic world. Even then we don't always succeed in changing their life style. Every human being has seed of bhakti in their bodies but we only need to water it so that it starts to grow and slowly slowly it becomes a Hari-Nama shaped big tree. We only need to water it by the means of chanting mahamantra:

Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna, Hare Hare
Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare

This is all we do for so-called good citizens. But still on the other hand there are people
to whom we are still ignoring may be for one reason or the other. Here I am focusing
your attention about the people who are in prison. In reality we all are prisoners in this world. But only difference in actual prisoners and us is that the so called actual prisoners are in the inside the prison and the rest is outside the prison but in real we all are prisoners in this world. The prisoners are also a part of our society and hence we should not ignore them. Our society (International Society for Krishna Consciousness)
is making every possible effort to preach to people even in the hidden places like prison. So that when the prisoners will be set free they must be spiritual and never do the sinful activities in their life. These people deserve more to be preached. For example doctor only first attend the serious patients and rest later. In the same way we must preach first to the said people because they are actually serious. We appeal to all the devotees worldwide to start such type of preaching programs so that preaching must touch hundred percent coverage. Hare Krishna.
