1. Converting brahmanas into sudras

    Now there should be examination whether so-called brahmanas, they are actually following the brahmana regulative principle and chanting the mantra regularly. Otherwise they should be converted again sudra. If we become safe simply by having a thread and do not do properly, then what is this? This should be examined. Every individual should
  2. Stop this fighting, tolerate

    You have dedicated your life for Krsna and therefore you should be ideal. We are introducing Krsna Consciousness movement for the harmony and good will of humanity. But if you yourselves are suffering from the very ills we are trying to remove, how can the people be influenced favorably? Stop this fighting, tolerate.
  3. Modern man: royal animal

    Real religion means to know God, our relation with Him and our duties in relation with Him and to know ultimately our destination after leaving this material body. The conditioned souls, who are entrapped by the material energy, hardly know all these principles of life. Most of them are like animals engaged in eating, sleeping, fearing and mating. They are mostly engaged in sense enjoyment under the pretension of religiosity, knowledge or salvation. They are
  4. Family life is not condemned, but don’t become lost

    According to the Vedic system, one has to forcibly give up family life at the age of fifty. One must go. There is no alternative. The first twenty-five years are for student life. From age five to age twenty-five, one should be educated very nicely in Krsna consciousness. The basic principle of one's education should be Krsna consciousness, nothing else. Then life will be pleasing and successful, both in this world and in the next. A Krsna conscious education...
  5. You will see Krsna, in the way that He advises

    Don't try to see Krsna in your own way; then you will never find Him. Why do you say, "We have not seen God," when God is represented in so many ways? You take God's advice and try to see Him as He advises, and then you'll see God. That's a fact. I do not understand — why do they say, "We have not seen God"? You are always seeing God. You are seeing the sunlight, you are seeing...
  6. Fully equipped with knowledge

    You must be fully equipped with knowledge. The Bhagavad-gita is there, the Srimad-Bhagavatam is there. Now we are publishing other books also, Teachings of Lord Caitanya. So read them...if you read, you become fully qualified with knowledge. And vijnanam: apply them in your practical life. And astikyam, in full faith of the procedures and in Krsna. That will make you successful.

  8. Difference between Srila Prabhupada’s book and ordinary book

    Yes, if they read. Even if they touch. That is the difference between this book and ordinary book. Even if they touch and they read one line and say, "Oh, it is very nice," they make a step forward. Therefore I am trying to push. They have paid some money. They will then say, "What these nonsense have written. Let me see." And if they see and say, "Oh, it is very nice," then that is immediately the beginning...
  9. Personal instruction to Asura-kula-nasana Dasa

    Prabhupada: Hare Krsna. Come on. [japa] What are the rules? Devotee: No meat-eating, no intoxication, no illicit sex, no gambling. Brahmananda: Asura-kula-nasana. Prabhupada: Ohh. Very big name. [laughter] Asura-kula-nasana. Asura-kula means demons. You have to massacre all these demons. [laughter] Come on. You will do it? You will do it? Thank you. [laughter] You know who is demon? You know who
  10. Take shelter of Nrsimha to kill the demons

    Whenever there are references to the avataras, religious principles are established, and demons who are against Krsna are killed. The Krsna consciousness movement is spreading all over the world with two aims — to establish Krsna as the Supreme Personality of Godhead and to kill all the pretenders who falsely present themselves as avataras. The preachers of the Krsna consciousness movement must carry this conviction very carefully within their hearts and kill the demons who in many tactful ways...
  11. Prahlada’s ecstatic Krsna consciousness

    Because of advancement in Krsna consciousness, he [Prahlada Maharaja] sometimes cried, sometimes laughed, sometimes expressed jubilation, and sometimes sang loudly. Sometimes, upon seeing the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Prahlada Maharaja would loudly call in full anxiety. He sometimes lost his shyness in jubilation and began dancing in ecstasy, and sometimes, being fully absorbed in thoughts of Krsna, he felt oneness and
