1. Here is Bhagavad-gita!

    Don’t remain rascals. Here is Bhagavad-gita. Learn everything very particularly, very minutely. And it is open for everyone. Krsna spoke Bhagavad-gita to Arjuna not for Arjuna. He came for everyone, because He loves everyone. From Srila Prabhupada’s lecture on Bhagavad-gita 7.4 — October 31, 1975, Nairobi
  2. Bhagavad-gita, a river of nectar

    When Krsna speaks on the Battlefield of Kuruksetra, to the materialistic person it appears that this is simply talk between two friends, but actually it is a river of nectar flowing down from the mouth of Sri Krsna. Arjuna gave aural reception to such vibrations, and thus he became freed from all the illusions of material problems. From […]
  3. Krishna’s kindness

    Krishna is very kind upon you because he has given you so many responsible tasks. So always think of the Lotus Feet of Sri Krishna and you will find no difficulties in executing the tasks allotted to you by Krishna. Bhaktivinode Thakura used to say all difficult tasks he had to execute for Krishna were […]
  4. Don’t try to cheat Krsna

    Ye yatha mam prapadyante tams tathaiva bhajamy aham [Bg. 4.11]. If you want to play tricks with Krsna, Krsna is the greater trick. You will never be able. That is our mistake, that we think that “I am so intelligent, I can do something without the knowledge of Krsna.” That is our foolishness. Krsna says, sarvasya caham […]
  5. Even a slight change will spoil it

    One who understands and appreciates the disciplic succession is certainly advanced, and we should always be very careful to give full respect to those who have so carefully handled this Divine Fruit of transcendental knowledge before us. Even a slight change will spoil it. That is why I have always been so careful to give you only […]
  6. Treat as Mother

    The common moral teachings and the Vedic civilization is to accept any woman except his own wife as mother. Matrvat para-daresu. Para-daresu. Everyone is supposed to be married. Dara means wife. Para-daresu, other’s wife. It doesn’t matter if she is younger or older, but she should be treated as mother. Therefore it is the system […]
  7. Unite the world

    We want to unite the world on the platform of Krsna Consciousness under one state, one government, one religion and one scripture. It will be successful if we work cautiously and maintain our standards. From Srila Prabhupada’s letter to Tamala Krsna — Los Angeles 13 December, 1973
  8. No “yes” or “no”

    One should not think of personal loss or gain. “Krsna desires it, so I have to do it,” that’s all. There is no personal consideration. That is real Krsna consciousness. “Krsna, You are asking me to do this. I do not like to do this. You give me some other work.” That is not Krsna consciousness. There is no […]
  9. Falsely proud

    Srila Prabhupada wrote in his purport to Srimad-Bhagavatam 3.9.29:  “Anyone who does some responsible work successfully but does not give credit to the Supreme Personality of Godhead is certainly falsely proud and cannot execute anything nicely.”
  10. A ticket back to Godhead

    One should try to purchase a ticket to go back home, back to Godhead. The price of such a ticket is one’s intense desire for it, which is not easily awakened, even if one continuously performs pious activities for thousands of lives. All mundane relationships are sure to be broken in the course of time, but […]
  11. You are suffering because you are disobeying

    In the Vedic literature we find, eko bahunam vidadhati kaman. That Supreme Lord is supplying everyone food. Why do you think of human society? What is the human society? Out of 8,400,000 forms of life there are only 400,000 и forms of human life. And 8,000,000 forms they are lower animals, birds, beasts, aquatics. Who is supplying their foodstuff? […]
