Demoniac Society’s Effect on ISKCON

We are in the clutches of what is actually a demoniac society, and what they think is good is actually not at all good for human society. But unfortunately our society (ISKCON) has become compromised. Now we are promoting that we have to feed the school children so that they can get a better start in life, so they can study better. “Study better” means to study all those things which will take them away from Krishna.

Importance of Simple Life For Spiritual Advancement

Prabhupada had such an ambitious plan to change the world, because harer nam harer nama harer nama eva kevalam: "Harinama is the only way for spiritual perfection in this age." But Prabhupada saw that people don't have time, nor the inclination. This modern society makes the people into demons. So this simple life is very conducive for spiritual advancement.

People of The Olden Times

Although people in the modern age can't imagine living without electricity, the whole human race up to the present time did so. Srila Prabhupada also often discussed how "They say that previously people were backward. But look at the kind of literature that Vyasadeva has given. This is not the work of a backward person!"
