Quotes Of The Day

Niranjana Swami
Collected Letters Written to Friends and Disciples, Vol. 3, September 25, 1993

You are anxious to develop genuine devotional qualities, and such "anxiety" for Krsna is the only price we must pay if we want to obtain His mercy. Don't be disappointed when you see that the bad qualities don't immediately go away. Patience is also an essential quality, and you have every reason to believe that if you remain patient, your real desires for pure devotional service will be obtained.

Srila Prabhupada
Lecture on Srimad-Bhagavatam 7.6.1, Montreal, 12 June, 1968

The mistake of modern civilization is that we are, I mean to say, bringing up spoiled children. So when they are grown up, if they become hippies or Communists, it is not their fault; it is the fault of the guardians. It is the fault of the guardians. When the people become just something against the social convention, it is not the fault of the youngsters, but it is the fault of the education system, it is the fault of the parents, it is fault of the teachers. Because they are not teaching. Prahlada Maharaja says that from the very childhood one should be taught.
