Translation and purport composed by disciples of Śrīla Prabhupāda
Transcendental love for Me arises by the devotional processes of hearing about Me, seeing My Deity form, meditating on Me and faithfully chanting My glories. The same result is not achieved by mere physical proximity. So please go back to your homes.
Lord Kṛṣṇa is certainly presenting formidable arguments.
