1. You must be very, very busy

    We do not allow any lazy man. He must be engaged. That is Krsna consciousness movement. That is Krsna’s order. Niyatam kuru karma. Arjuna was refusing to fight. He was trying to be a nonviolent gentleman. Krsna did not allow him. “No, no, you cannot do that. That is your weakness.” Kutas tva kasmalam idam visame sam…: “You are proving yourself rascal. It is anarya-justam. This kind of proposal is for the anarya, uncivilized man. Don’t do that.” That is Krsna’s… So don’t think that Krsna consciousness movement, those who are Krsna conscious, they’ll become lazy and imitate Haridasa Thakura. That is not Krsna consciousness. Krsna consciousness means, as Krsna instructs, you must be very, very busy, twenty-four hours. That is Krsna consciousness. Not to become a lazy fellow, eat and sleep. No.
