1. Shedding three tons of blood

    They have forgotten Krsna, they have forgotten God, and I am trying to make them Krsna conscious. It is a very difficult job. I have to shed my blood three tons before I make one convinced in Krsna consciousness. That is my experience. I have to talk with him, especially these Europeans and Americans. They do not accept anything so blindly.
