Vyasa Puja Offering To Srila Prabhupada

We should not waste our time with solving economic problems. Economic development is nonsense. Of course, this proposal is very revolutionary, and people may even hate me for it. "What is Swamiji saying?" they may ask. But actually it is a fact. This economic development is madness.
Srila Prabhupada; TQK 4: Approaching Krsna, the All-pervading Truth
So srimad-bhagavate maha-muni-krte. Srimad-Bhagavata is not some materialistic philosopher's or writer's as you have got... They are called gramya-vastavah. Gramya-vastavah means ordinarily these affairs. A man is meeting woman, woman is meeting man-that story, all these novels and fiction and dramas. It is not like that. Therefore it is said maha-muni-krte srimad-bhagavate. It is not ordinary persons writing whimsical, some, manufacturing some story, narration and puzzling the brain. No. Srimad-bhagavate maha-muni-krte: it is beyond all defects of human life. When an ordinary person writes, he writes with defective instruments. First of all, any man within this world, however great he may be, he must commit mistake. That's a fact. There are many instances, simply for little mistake. Just like Hitler. Hitler planned so gorgeously winning over the world. A little mistake, as soon as his attention was diverted toward Russia, he was finished. The Britishers tried to divert his attention toward Russia. Little mistake. Otherwise Hitler would have come out victorious. There are many instances, in political field, in sociological field. So however one man may be great, he must commit mistake. This is called conditional life. There is no man in this world who can say that "I never committed any mistake." Is there any man? No. That is not possible.
Srila Prabhupada; Lecture on SB 1.1.2 — London, August 16, 1971
So I am very glad that Krsna has sent so many nice boys and girls to help me. Be blessed on this auspicious day. And there is nothing mine. I am simply a postal peon. I am delivering to you what I have heard from my Guru Maharaja. Simply you also act in the same way, and you will be happy, and the world will be happy, and Krsna will be happy, and everything will be happy.
(Conclusion of Srila Prabhupada's talk on Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Gosvami Appearance Day, February 7, 1969, Los Angeles)
Countless eons ago, when men and animals could converse together and powerful brahmanas would effect miracles, the uncontrollable demon Ravana was terrorizing the universe. The Ramayana records the adventures of Rama, the Lord of righteousness, as He struggles to overcome the forces of Ravana. This absorbing narration has delighted and enlightened countless generations in India, and its timeless spiritual insights
are compellingly relevant in today’s confused world.
