Belly-filling modern civilization

    Posted on November 19, 2016

Brahmana means spiritual guidance, ksatriya means material guidance. So these things are necessity. But where are those brahmanas and ksatriyas? They are training everyone sudra. Work hard like hogs and dogs and fill up your hungry belly. That's all. This is the modern civilization. Kali-yuga's symptoms: daksyam udaram bharitah. One man is supposed to be very expert who has learned how to fill up his belly. That's all. No other knowledge is required. Whether you have sumptuously put foodstuff within your belly.

Srila Prabhupada — April 12, 1974, Bombay

The poet Allen Ginsberg praised Srila Prabhupada thus:
Krsna comes, feeling pain for us
The Lord's form
Why Krsna is called Paramesvara
All-knowing, all-powerful Krsna
Devotees who go away
Temporary relief work: a misleading deviation from our real duty
Srila Prabhupada came to give culture, including dress style
Akrura sees Krsna and Balarama
Read Brahma Samhita very carefully
Vedic religion means varnasrama-dharma
We cannot live under a tree as did Srila Rupa Gosvami
Following in the footsteps of Srila Rupa Gosvami
If sincere, a "bad" devotee is not bad
Purely chanting
