  2. Mahaprabhu’s advice: “Be a guru”

    Krsna Caitanya Mahaprabhu has advised that because all these rascals are filled up all over the world, "Each one of you become a guru." Yes. So many gurus required.

  3. Dancing like jubilant peacocks

    In the rainy season, when the clouds appear for the first time, the peacocks dance with joy upon seeing them. The peacocks can be compared to persons who are very much harassed in the materialistic way of life.

  8. Cut the head of the Mayavadi

    Harikesa: [name of Mayavadi guru], when he lectures, he only lectures on the verses that are important. He says all the other ones, they're not really important. He picks out the ones that count.
