[Letter to Ramesvara 14 Nov 1975]
By all the Vedas, I am to be known. Indeed, I am the compiler of Vedanta, and I am the knower of the Vedas.
Bhagavad Gita 15.15
We are building temples and developing projects, they are not just buildings or structures. These projects are meant for helping you make spiritual advancement. These projects are meant to bring you closer to Krishna.
Play music in Krishna conciousness.
The power that we have, the knowledge and influence that we have are beautiful gifts from God to be utilized to serve each other unconditionally.
Our first duty is to satisfy the spiritual master, who can arrange for the Lord’s mercy. A common man must first begin to serve the spiritual master or the devotee. Then, through the mercy of the devotee, the Lord will be satisfied. Unless one receives the dust of a devotee’s lotus feet on one’s head, there is no possibility of advancement. Unless one approaches a pure devotee, he cannot understand the Supreme Personality of Godhead. — Sri Chaitanya caritamrita, Madhya Lila, 11.58.
People should learn the Science of God and understand what is my relationship with God.
Working for Krishna is the ultimate perfection of all our activities.
The most important aspect of preaching is to take care of the person very nicely.
