From hell to heaven and back

    Posted on April 16, 2015

We are offering this place. Come here. Why do you not come here and live with us? The Krsna consciousness movement is... This is the movement, that you come here, live with us, and produce your food, produce your milk, be happy, healthy, and chant Hare Krsna. This is our movement. Therefore we are creating New Vrindaban and farm, and we are trying to purchase...

This is our movement, that we give you sufficient food, shelter, health, philosophy, religion, character, everything purity. Come here. Why don't you come? They come here on the weekdays, and then fly away, go away. We are giving such nice room, but they will not live here. They will go to the hubble-bubble of the city. They like to come here. Therefore they spend so much money for gas and come here. But because they are not accustomed, they go back again. Return ticket. From hell to heaven, and again hell. [laughter] Return ticket -- coming back to hell again, not going back to God.

(Srila Prabhupada, Morning Walk  -- April 3, 1975 , Mayapur)
