1. Only Business is Chanting

    So we should be callous with all these political, social... We should simply go on. That is Caitanya Mahaprabhu. He was callous. Family affairs, wife responsibility, for mother's responsibility, for... Nothing. Simply chant Hare Krsna. Kirtaniyah sada harih [Cc. Adi 17.31]. That is Caitanya Mahaprabhu's life. Even didn't care for anything, no responsibility. "My only
  2. Dedicated life is sublime

    Everyone should be dedicated, I or you. That is the success of life. Dedicate your life for Krsna. That is the perfection. Even there are some faults, dedicated life is noble life. Maybe, due to our past habits, we may commit some faulty action, but that dedicated life is sublime. Srila Prabhupada — March 4, 1974, Mayapur

Please always remind me to chant, even You send me to hell, it doesn't matter, just so long as I can always chant Hare Krishna."
  5. Turning crows into swans

    Where do crows enjoy? In a filthy place. But white swans take pleasure in nice clear waters surrounded by gardens. So even among animals there are natural divisions. The crows will not go to the swans, and the swans will not go to the crows. Similarly, in human society there are men who are like crows and men who are like swans. The swanlike men will come to centers of Krsna consciousness, where
  6. Male/female equality: unity in variety

    You cannot surpass the nature's law. That is not possible. Prakrteh kriyamanani gunaih karmani sarvasah [Bg. 3.27]. Nature's law will go on. Best thing is, let the hand... The hand can typewrite, but if you say, "No, the leg will typewrite," that is not possible. Take hand's business, take leg's business, and combine them cooperatively. Then the body will be nice. If the leg
