Bigotry of non-chanters

    Posted on September 6, 2014

We have to give up this body. But if at the time of death if we can think of Krsna... It is very difficult, but if we practice it... Sada tad-bhava-bhavitah. Sada means always. If we practice this simple method: Hare Krsna, Hare Krsna, Krsna Krsna, Hare Hare/ Hare Rama, Hare Rama..., then it is possible. So where is the difficulty? Where is the loss? If we ask you to do something, if you think there will be loss, you may reject it. But if there is no loss and the gain is that you get Krsna, then why don't you do it? Such is our bigotry: "No, we shall not chant. We shall not do this." This is our misfortune.

From Srila Prabhupada's lecture on Srimad-Bhagavatam 3.26.46 -- January 21, 1975, 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
