1. Stick to the lotus feet of Krsna

    Lampata husband goes to so many other women, but the chaste wife still loves the husband: “Never mind.” So similarly we have to become so chaste, so honorable, just to stick to the lotus feet of Krsna. That is Krsna consciousness movement. From Srila Prabhupada’s lecture on Srimad-Bhagavatam 1.2.27 — Vrndavana, November 7, 1972
  2. This should not be the standard of civilization

    The productive energy of the laborer is misused when he is occupied by industrial enterprises. Industry of various types cannot produce the essential needs of man, namely rice, wheat, grains, milk, fruits and vegetables. The production of machines and machine tools increases the artificial living fashion of a class of vested interests and keeps thousands of men in starvation and […]

Take it! Take it!’ Even you are unwilling, I give it in your pocket, push it. That is krpa.” […]
  5. Why we are printing books

    Yes, we are fighting impersonalism and voidism with pure devotional service. Impersonalism and voidism kills the natural aptitude of devotion which is lying dormant in everyone’s heart. Therefore we are printing books like our KRISHNA book so that people may know it that the supreme absolute truth is a person. The perfection of every living creature is to render […]
  6. Abortionists cannot avoid punishment

    We are in the womb of the mother, and all of a sudden we come out, we see light, begin to cry, and the relatives take care of us and we forget everything, in how much precarious condition I was before my birth. Those who are ordinarily sinful can at least see the light once, but those who […]
  7. Who is a follower of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu?

    CC Antya 3.51 purport: Those who are following in the footsteps of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu should take the Lord’s mission most seriously. … One who identifies himself as a follower of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu should feel like Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, who said, iha-sabara kon mate ha-ibe nistara: “How will all these yavanas be delivered?” CC Adi 9.39 purport: Therefore […]
