What if Muslims or Christians deny to chant the name of Krishna?

Letters of His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedānta Swami Prabhupāda

Srila Prabhupada on a morning walk with Father Emmanuel Jungclaussen

For all practical purposes if we systematically preach to chant the holy name of Godhead, I think nobody, including even the religious fanatics, will take objection to it. Every human being has a conception of the Supreme Truth. That conception is presented in some concrete shape. If therefore the Mussulman or the Christian denies to chant the name of Rama or Krishna we may ask him to chant the name of Allah or God respectively and I think therefore there will be no objection even by the Buddhists if we simply ask them to chant the name of Lord Buddha in the systematic way.

The systematic way means to avoid the ten different offences in the process of chanting, which are all philosophical truths.

If by such propaganda of chanting the holy name, the filthy atmosphere of jealousy, bickerings, selfishness, falsehood and so many other affairs of the modern age—can be avoided, and if by such chanting the complete process of self-realization can be achieved—is it not our duty to do this service by combined force.

[An excerpt from a letter to Padampat Singhania, Kanpur, 7 May 1957]
