Do not adjust to present immoral activities

    Posted on July 19, 2015

Present time, everyone is fallen -- but truth is always the same, not [only] at present time. So the real truth is that ideal man of character there must be. "Because at the present moment there is no character, there is no moral education; therefore we have to adapt according to them." No. The pakka moralist, he must be moralist. It doesn't matter that "People at the present
time, they do all immoral activities; therefore we have to adjust." No. Strictly one should be moralist. There is no question of present time or past time.

(Srila Prabhupada -- Vrndavana, April 20, 1975)
