  2. War by sankirtana

    Preach as much as possible, by sankirtana, big sankirtana. Big sankirtana is book distribution, and small sankirtana is with mrdanga. Big sankirtana is going on all over the world; small sankirtana locally. Overflood the demons’ godless civilization. Our declaration of war against this godless civilization. Srila Prabhupada — December 31, 1976, Bombay
  3. What is the use of ornamental language?

    Mundane books are written by imperfect persons. Everyone has his own theory, which means he is imperfect. The Srimad-Bhagavatam says if there is a real presentation of spiritual understanding, then even if it is presented i broken language, it is accepted by high, saintly persons, because it glorifies the Supreme Person. On the other hand, if literature is […]
  4. Sri Rama, the Personality of Godhead

    In the eighteenth incarnation, the Lord appeared as King Rama.

  5. Lord Ramacandra, a responsible husband

    Lord Ramacandra, He is God. He could create thousands and millions of Sitas, but not for one Sita He killed the whole family. That is husband. That is the duty of the husband.

  6. Lord Ramacandra blesses the sages

    This development of conjugal love for Krsna is not manifested in women only. The material body has nothing to do with spiritual loving affairs. A woman may develop an attitude for becoming a friend of Krsna, and, similarly, a man may develop the feature of becoming a gopi in Vrndavana. How a devotee in the form of a man […]
  7. Let God elect the prime minister

    If you depend on God, then why do you keep election? You are opportunist. Sometimes you take shelter of God and sometimes of your election power. If you are so firm believer in God, then why election? Let God elect. Why you take part in election? Huh? Let God elect the prime minister. Why you are busy in giving […]
  8. Writing by following the superior authorities

    Anu means not whimsically; following the superior authorities. You cannot write anything which is not approved by the superior authorities. Therefore, we have to give examples, quotations from the sastra, that “What I am speaking, it is supported by the sastra.” Not that “I have inventive power. I have…, I can do, I can write anything I like.” That […]
  9. Don’t hear from any rascal

    There is a big Mayavadi sannyasi in India. His name is Akhandananda Swami. Perhaps you know.  Did you know? No. Anyone? Anyway, he is a Mayavadi sannyasi. So Acyutananda Swami went to sell some books in their camp. So his disciple requested him, “Why don’t you ask some question from Swamiji?” So he said, “What I have to ask […]
  10. Why Srila Prabhupada goes to every country

    Prabhupada: I am going to every country, because everywhere the same mistake is going on: bodily concept of life. So I am trying to bring them to the real life, and then make their plan. They will be happy. It is not for South Africa. For any Africa, or any country, South America or South India or anywhere, the […]
  11. Leaders are rogues, not to be trusted

    Brahmananda: We do not really understand how demoniac, how calculating, our leaders are. We have the impression, because we are taught from the very beginning in the schools, that the leaders are to be worshiped, that their birthdays are to be celebrated. It is difficult to come to that understanding, that actually, those who are the leaders are not […]
