Factories

The temples of modern India are the factories – they say so. No one is happy in the factories. No one feels peace of mind in the factories. "Factory," as Prabhupada states, is another name of hell. But modern India is very eagerly creating hell more and more. So this we should understand, and preach also. Generally now in our Krishna consciousness movement we don't discuss these things; somehow or other it has become unwanted to discuss these things. But Prabhupada discussed these things all the time.

Organizing The Society

Unless we organize society in a manner that is conducive for Krishna consciousness, we will be forced to become part of this modern society.

Modern Krishna Consciousness Movement

In the modern Krishna consciousness movement we don't hear much being said about Prabhupada's desire to have alternative societies; rather, we are very busy becoming part of the modern society, because we are dictated to by the economics of the modern society, in that we rely on the donations of people who are dedicated to the misguided concept of life, so we may be afraid to tell them clearly that this way of life is not good for you.

Importance of Having Devotee Varnasrama Communities

We may think, "Well, we don't really need to have our own way of life (devotee varnasrama communities). We can just go on as we are. Temples are there, people give donations, and people can become devotees living at home." That's true, but people becoming devotees living at home [means that] mostly their situation is not at all favorable for Krishna consciousness – working such long hours, associating with nondevotees, and then they have to send their children to the schools, where they are educated how to become a demon.
