Our only strength; what impresses others

    Posted on June 6, 2015

Factually this is our only strength. I have seen better orators, better scholars and better organizers but no one is becoming pure by following regulative principles. Simply because we rise early, take bath, chant sixteen rounds and strive with every activity to please Krishna--this is what impresses others.

(From Srila Prabhupada's letter to Bali-mardana - Bombay 4 November 1970)
