So how much by nature the sex life is condemned in so many ways. Therefore we say, "No illicit sex." It will save you from so many encumbrances. Sex life is not denied, but this unrestricted sex life is very, very abominable in human society. But they are encouraging unrestricted sex life. They are distributing tablet, encouraging others to have sex life, never mind. Unmarried girls, they are keeping dogs
- (Prahladananda Swami, 2003 Vyasa-puja offering) Srila Prabhupada came to give the world Krsna consciousness. What precisely does Krsna consciousness mean? Srila Prabhupada has explained the importance of understanding this: Therefore, one has to seek out such a bona fide spiritual master and, under him, learn what Krsna consciousness is, for Krsna consciousness will
- Srila Prabhupada said: "I was very persistent. All my friends, children, would help me. I was never lazy from my birth, neither dull. Neither to be defeated by anyone. Whatever I would order to my parents or friends must be obeyed. Krsna has always given me leadership. I am surprised how I, a poor Indian, have leadership of the Europeans and Americans. Only my wife
- The yogis, karmis, jnanis, they are not interested about hearing Krsna; they are trying to become Krsna. And that is another maya. Nobody can become Krsna — it is not possible.

You can play with Krsna personally. You can dance with Krsna. That is Krsna-loka. Just like we have got a picture, rasa dancing going. Here is picture, Krsna's. Everyone can get this opportunity.

In comparison to this eternal bliss, the so-called happiness of society, friendship and love is simply useless and insignificant. One should therefore not be attached to temporary things. One should take to Krsna consciousness and become eternally happy.
- Actually, the modern government, democracy... We are experiencing, especially the great democratic country, America. So the democracy, the president elected by popular vote, is now being condemned.
