Srila Prabhupada's Quote Of The Day

March 31, 2010

We take a newspaper and we read what the politician says, so many nonsense things. We waste our time. Srama eva hi kevalam. We should increase our taste for hearing and chanting about Vishnu, Krishna.

I am aware that you are feeling my absence just as I am feeling the absence from you. But in the meantime this must be so and Krishna will provide for you as long as you keep chanting Hare Krishna.

Krishna is gopika-kanta. Radha-kanta. That is Krishna`s real identification. He is gopika-kanta and He is Radha-kanta. This relationship with Krishna and gopis, that is the highest perfectional realization of the Absolute Truth.

You should not keep your trust on so-called gentlemen of the world however nicely dressed he may be.In the matter of discharging our mission of Krishna consciousness we have to meet so many so-called gentlemen, but we must be very cautious for dealing with them as we are cautious in dealing with serpants.

Ramchandra`s life, God's activities, pastimes, if we hear, that means we are associating with Ramchandra. There is no difference between His form, His name, His pastimes and Himself. He is absolute. Therefore either you chant the holy name of Rama or you see the statue of Rama or you talk of His transcendental pastimes, everything, that means you are associating with Supreme Personality of Godhead. We take advantage of these days when the incarnation of God appears or disappears, and we try to associate with Him.

Krishna and Balarama, They are Absolute Truth. There is no difference between killing and loving. Those who were killed, you know they were also delivered from this material bondage. Now these same two brothers have again descended as Sri Krishna Chaitanya-Nityananda.

When the soul leaves this body, then what it is? It has no value, a lump of matter, just like a motorcar. So long it is moving, it is worth one lakh and so long it does not move, it is simply lump of iron and cooper and something. Who cares for it? It is thrown away. Same things. The body has no value. It has value so long the soul is there.

Radha-Krishna. Radha`s name is first. Why? Nobody can be better devotee than Radharani. As soon as Radha`s name is there, Krishna is more pleased. That is the way. If we glorify the devotee, the character of the devotees, before the Lord, He is more pleased than to glorify Himself, He directly.

The tortoise as soon as he likes to disclose his senses, and when he likes he pulls them within. That is the position of a pure devotee. He can wind up the senses whenever he likes and he can exhibit the senses whenever he likes. The senses are under his control. He is not under the control of the senses as are the ordinary persons. That is the meaning of Goswami.

Letter to Himavati, March 23, 1969

We can ask favour from anyone, but we must know that nobody can favour us unless sanctioned by the Supreme Person. Suppose we approach rich man to favour us with some contribution. Krishna is there within, and if he says, "You give him this money", the man will give us. If he is not so fortunate now therefore Krishna did not dictate him. So there is nothing to be sorry. This should be our principle.
