  1. Understand easily, forget easily

    Guest (2): I have very many questions to ask. Prabhupada: Yes, that’s nice. But you cannot assimilate all the answers in one day. That is not possible. You have many questions, but ask in many days, not in one day. Otherwise you will get indigestion. [laughter] You will not be able to… Simply you go […]
  2. Krsna meditation

    This Deity, description of Krsna, is there in the temple, in the book. So if you always simply think of this beautiful form of Krsna, that is called perfect meditation. If you simply think of. That is very easy. If you… We are always attracted by beautiful things. So Krsna is the most beautiful. So […]
  3. No benefit by making a show

    Krsna consciousness movement means solution of all problems, teaching people not to become sinful. Because a sinful man cannot become Krsna conscious. To become Krsna conscious means that he has to give up his sinful activities: no illicit sex life, no meat-eating, no intoxication, no gambling. These are the four pillars of sinful life. So […]
  4. No comparison

    Krishna consciousness philosophy is as old as 120 million years at the least. So nothing can be compared with our philosophy either in the matter of antiquity, philosophy, ethics, science, morality, etc., all in correct vision and approved by great stalwart acaryas. So far others are concerned, they cannot be compared even. From Srila Prabhupada’s […]
  5. What we have to prove to the world

    Yes, that is our aim, to destroy the position of the mundane scholars. Mundane scholars are called adhyaksika, which means simply sense perceivers, no realization. Stick to your principles and be Krsna conscious. We have to prove to the world that anyone who is not Krsna conscious is a duskrtina and mudha. Srila Prabhupada; letter […]
  6. Killing horses and fathers

    Sukadeva: In Seattle not only do they eat cows, but they run out of cows and they start eating horses. They have stopped eating cows in Seattle. It is very famous now to buy horsemeat. They have horse steaks instead of cow steaks. They have become so degraded now that they are eating horses. Prabhupada: […]
  7. Chanting is the basis

    The Krsna consciousness movement is based upon this instruction of Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu that one must chant the Hare Krsna maha-mantra regularly and according to the prescribed principles. We simply ask our Western students to chant at least sixteen rounds a day, but sometimes we find that they fail to chant even these sixteen rounds, […]
  8. Our morality

    We should not accept this karma-vada or the bauddha-vada or Mayavada — there are so many vadas. We shall simply take krsna-vada. Simply, simply accept Krsna. And whatever He orders, whatever He likes, for His satisfaction, we shall do anything and everything. That is our morality. From Srila Prabhupada’s lecture on Bhagavad-gita 2.26-27 — August […]
  9. 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 […]
