Srila Prabhupada's Quote Of The Day

July 30

Child worship is more important than deity-worship. If you cannot spend time with your child, then stop the duties of pujari. These children are given to us by Krishna. They are Vaisnavas and we must be very careful to protect them. These are not ordinary children, they are Vaikuntha children, and we are very fortunate we can give them chance to advance further in Krishna Consciousness. That is very great responsibility, do not neglect it or be confused.

Letter to Arundhati, July 30,1972.

If you send the typewriter to heaven, it is to be worked as typewriter. Either in this hell or heaven, typewriter will kat, kat, kat, kat. Similarly our position is servant.
