common platform for the universal religion of mankind

Chanting of the holy names of the Lord is the common platform for the universal religion of mankind in the Kali-yuga:
In this present  age quarrels  take place even over trifles, and therefore  the shastras  have recommended  for this age a common platform for realization, namely chanting  the holy names  of the  Lord.  People  can  hold  meetings  to  glorify the  Lord  in  their  respective languages  and  with  melodious  songs,  and  if  such  performances  are  executed  in  an offenseless  manner,   it  is  certain  that  the  participants   will  gradually  attain  spiritual perfection without having to undergo more rigorous methods.
At such  meetings  everyone,  the  learned  and  the  foolish,  the  rich  and  the  poor,  the Hindus  and  the  Muslims, the  Englishmen  and  the  Indians,  and  the  chandalas  and  the brahmanas,  can all hear the transcendental sounds and thus cleanse the dust of material association from the mirror of the heart. To confirm the Lord's mission, all the people of the world will accept the holy name of the Lord as the common platform for the universal religion of mankind.
