1. Humble slap in face/kick out everything except Caitanya’s teachings

    One day on a morning walk, Prabhupada was explaining Prabodananda Sarasvati’s verse where he states, “I take a straw in my teeth and bow before you and ask you to hear about Lord Caitanya.” One of Prabhupada’s sannyasi disciples said, “That is a very humble statement.” Prabhupada replied, “A humble statement for giving you a slap in the face.” Prabhupada went on to explain that the devotee is only humble so that he can ask you to kick out everything except Lord Caitanya’s teachings.
