Unserious men, useless initiation, preaching failure

    Posted on July 29, 2017

Siddha-svarupa: But if that seriousness is not there, then it makes a mockery of initiation.

Prabhupada: No, there is no question of mockery.

Siddha-svarupa: No, but if the seriousness is not there...

Prabhupada: That means your preaching is not good, because you are not preaching seriously. That means your preaching is failure. You should go on, but you should know also that "These men are not becoming serious. Then what is the use of initiation?"
