  2. The cause of all troubles in present society

    Not only is the cow with her calf beautiful to look at, but the calf also gives satisfaction to the cow, and so she happily delivers as much milk as possible. But in the Kali-yuga, the calves are separated from the cows as early as possible for purposes which may not be mentioned in these pages of Srimad-Bhagavatam.

  3. Be satisfied on the farm

    The grhasthas may come here, have some small cottage, and grow your own food grains, vegetables, and have your cow's milk. Get nice foodstuff, save time. Why should you go in the city, hundred miles in car and again hundred miles come back and take unnecessary trouble?

  4. The primary qualification for assimilating transcendental knowledge

    The method by which the transcendental message is received is the method of submissive hearing.

  7. Chant and hear—don’t be inattentive

    When you will chant, you'll hear also. Then your attention will be there. And you are chanting and you are thinking something else, oh, that is also another offense. You should be careful.

  8. India’s greatest misfortune

    Among the countries of this meagre planet earth, Bharata-varsa, or India, is the best because since the dawn of creation Indian sages have exhibited the most exceptional skill in pursuing the esoteric spiritual science. In days of yore, these sages could communicate with the higher planetary systems. But today India is in such a bad condition that we are not willing
  9. Americans: show example of simple farm life

    The devotee's life should be yavad artha-prayojanam. We require material necessities as much as it is required, no artificial life. That is spiritual life. Simply increasing artificial life, even for shaving, a big machine is required. What is this? Simply wasting time. Devil's workshop. Make life very simple. And simple living, high thinking, and always conscious to
