Innocent men, women, they are kept in that factory simply for livelihood. A little work will provide his needs. Nature has given so much facility. They can grow little food anywhere. The cows are there in the pasturing ground. Take milk and live peacefully. Why you open factories?
Srila Prabhupada, 26 June 26, 1976
You cannot stop war and go on killing animals. That is not possible. There will be so many accidents for killing. The wholesale kill. When Krsna kills, He kills wholesale. When I kill — one after another. But when Krsna kills, they assemble all the killers and kill.
From Srila Prabhupada's lecture on Srimad-Bhagavatam 6.1.8-13 — 24 July, 1971
We have no stock except chanting. But why do we talk of philosophy? Because the fools want to talk of philosophy. Otherwise, there is no need of talking philosophy. Simply by chanting, everything is complete.
From Srila Prabhupada's lecture on Sri Caitanya-caritamrta, Adi-lila 7.39-47 — San Francisco, February 1, 1967
If one can chant the holy name of God that will purify the whole situation as it is being proved by the Krishna consciousness movement all over the world. Therefore my suggestion is especially in India we should organize the chanting of the Hare Krishna Maha-mantra village to village, town to town. In Europe and America I am doing this regularly by sending our men by buses and cars and it is appreciated all over the world.
From Srila Prabhupada's letter to G.L. Nanda, 19 April, 1975
Countless eons ago, when men and animals could converse together and powerful brahmanas would effect miracles, the uncontrollable demon Ravana was terrorizing the universe. The Ramayana records the adventures of Rama, the Lord of righteousness, as He struggles to overcome the forces of Ravana. This absorbing narration has delighted and enlightened countless generations in India, and its timeless spiritual insights
are compellingly relevant in today’s confused world.
