"At the time of kiirtan, so many peoples, so many devotees assemble, and all their collective physical energies function unitedly. But more than that, their collective psychic energies are flowing in the same channel under the inspiration of Parama Purusa (Cosmic Consciousness). So many minds are being loved by Parama Purusa, so many minds are being guided and inspired by that Supra-Celestial Entity. So at the place of kiirtan, not only will there be a huge concentration of physical energies, but also of psychic energy which will remove collective accumulated miseries of this material, quinquelemental world (composed of 5 fundamental factors - ether, aerial, luminous, liquid, solid)."
