TRANSLATION
When the Lord loudly chanted "Hari bol!" the trees and creepers became jubilant to hear Him.
PURPORT
The loud chanting of the Hare Krsna mantra is so powerful that it can even penetrate the ears of trees and creepers-what to speak of animals and human beings. Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu once asked Haridasa Thakura how trees and plants could be delivered, and Haridasa Thakura replied that the loud chanting of the Hare Krsna maha-mantra would benefit not only trees and plants but insects and all other living beings. One should therefore not be disturbed by the loud chanting of Hare Krsna, for it is beneficial not only to the chanter but to everyone who gets an opportunity to hear.
