1. Day and night, think of Krsna

    We have to work according to our capacity; at the same time chant Hare Krsna mantra. Krsna has given you the tongue, and there is no difficulty. Kurvana yatra karmani. And always think of Krsna, man-mana bhava mad-bhaktah. “How I can think of Krsna constantly? It becomes hackneyed.” No. The varieties. Krsna says that you […]
  2. The only remedy

    Krsna says in Bhagavad-gita (13.9) that the real sufferings of the material world are four-janma-mrtyu jara-vyadhi (birth, death, old age and disease).

Because there is no such culture, therefore the result is the abortion and killing and bombing, making the whole atmosphere abominable. This is your culture. Fighting between Protestant and Catholics, and bombing… People are terrified. They […]

Prabhupada: That is already explained. They will read. They will see the picture of Krsna. Immediate profit is, they will ask, “What is this picture?” […]
  6. Not chanting sixteen rounds?

    Pancadravida: What if the person cannot chant sixteen rounds a day. He says, “I can’t…” Prabhupada: Then he is not even a human being. He is a rascal, that’s all. He is not a human being. What to consider of talking about…? Don’t talk about him if he cannot chant sixteen rounds. He is not […]
