Create Vrndavana amid the raksasa civilization

    Posted on November 21, 2015

Vanam: we should go to the forest and take shelter of the lotus feet of Hari. So Vrndavana is also forest. So create Vrndavana. Keep Krsna here, cows here, calves here; produce your own food. It will become Vrndavana.

This is Vrndavana. Where there is Krsna, where there are cows, where there is agriculture, that is Vrndavana. See the life of Krsna. He advised His father to worship Govardhana Hill. He said, "My dear father, Govardhana Hill is giving grass to our cows. Why you are arranging for the demigod worship, Indra? There is Govardhana-puja."

So you should produce enough food grains, enough fodder for the cows, and live peacefully, chant Hare Krsna, make this life. At least one life we should do like that. It is very happy life.

So you have got this land; develop it. Don't go away. Develop it. That is my instruction. Keep cows, as many cows as possible. You don't require practice. Produce your own food, own milk -- save time; chant Hare Krsna. This is perfect. You don't require technical education and this education, that education, wine, meat. This is raksasa civilization. This is not human civilization. Human civilization: peacefully living, saving time for Krsna consciousness, and then at the time of death you remember Krsna.

(Srila Prabhupada -- May 25, 1975, Honolulu)
