Constantly poke the rascals

    Posted on August 28, 2017

Kurusrestha: Sometimes, Srila Prabhupada, even we explain that, and they can seem to understand, still they won't do anything about it.

Prabhupada: So you have to constantly poke them, these rascals. Just like one man is sleeping. You have to call him constantly, "Mr. Such, Mr. Such, wake up, rascal. You are sleeping. Why?" This is our business. Uttisthata jagrata prapya varan nibodhata. That is sung by Bhaktivinoda Thakura. Kota nidra jao maya-pisacira kole: "How long you will sleep? You have got this opportunity, human form of life. Now get up." Jiv jago, jiv jago, gauracanda bole. This is our mantra: "You rascal, get up. Take to this Krsna consciousness and solve all your problems."
