Just work

Русский перевод

You cannot see Krsna. You may have your eyes, big, big eyes, but you cannot see Krsna. You have to please Him. That pleasing activity is bhakti. Bhakti. And bhakti means the activities which will please Krsna. Without that bhakti, means sitting down silently... No. "No, no. I am chanting. I do not want to go out. I am busy." Means excuse. What you will chant? You will think of money and woman, that's all. Just work. Go to sell books and work hard. That is wanted. Therefore we do not give that opportunity. My Guru Maharaja did not give this opportunity, and we are following the same principle: no opportunity of sitting idly. No. You must work. That will rectify.

From Srila Prabhupada's lecture on Srimad-Bhagavatam 7.9.53 — April 8, 1976, Vrndavana
