1. Better activity

    Krsna consciousness movement is that you get better activity. Therefore you can give up the inferior activities. Otherwise, simply by negation it is not possible. We must work. We must work for Krsna’s sake. We shall go to Krsna’s temple, or we shall go for selling Krsna’s books or meeting some Krsna devotee. That is […]
  2. Kali will not be able to touch you

    Krsna, although left this planet, and if He is everything, how Krsna can go away? Krsna can remain with you eternally. And even if you say that “Because Krsna went away, therefore Kali got the chance of entering,” but if you keep yourself with Krsna, where is the chance of Kali to enter? Where is […]
  3. We have to educate people gradually

    Devotee: It seems that people are so attached to sense gratification, if we tell them we want to stop all these facilities for drinking, cinema, women, like that, they become angry. Prabhupada: That is natural. If you give good instruction to a rascal, he’ll be angry. Murkhayopadeso hi prakopayati na santayi. Murkha, a rascal, if […]
  4. Don’t sit idly, rascal

    Jayadvaita: Prabhupada, if Krsna had already done all the work at Kuruksetra, why was He so eager to have Arjuna work? Prabhupada: Just to show example, that “Don’t sit idly, rascal. Work.” Krsna has already done, but you must work. This is the example. Srila Prabhupada; Morning Walk — March 15, 1974, Vrndavana
  5. The mercy of Prahlada & Nrsimha

    Krsna is the Supreme Lord, the original Lord [SB 1.3.28]. Prahlada Maharaja is our guru, and Krsna is our worshipable God. As advised by Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, guru-krsna-prasade paya bhakti-lata-bija [Cc 2.19.151]. If we can be successful in getting the mercy of Prahlada Maharaja and also that of Nrsimhadeva, then our Krsna consciousness movement will […]
  6. Prahlada Maharaja said:

    “My dear friends, O sons of the demons, it is certain that no one bereft of knowledge of the Supreme Personality of Godhead has been able to liberate himself from material bondage at any time or in any country. Rather, those bereft of knowledge of the Lord are bound by the material laws. They are […]
  7. Believe Krsna, go to Him

    Devotee (2): Prabhupada, how can one know whether he’ll be going back home to Godhead in this lifetime? Prabhupada: Yes, believe in Krsna. He gives His word. Janma karma me divyam yo janati tattvatah [Bg 4.9]. Krsna says, “Anyone who understands Me in truth,” tyaktva deham punar janma naiti, “he doesn’t accept any more material […]
  8. Fault-finding like flies

    The flies are finding out where is sore, and the bees are finding out where there is honey. So two animals, they have got two business: fault-finding and collecting the good things. Similarly, there are many rascals who are simply fault-finding. Blasphemy means you have good qualities, but still, I am defaming you. Srila Prabhupada […]
