Srila Prabhupada's Quote Of The Day

April 8

According to sastra anyone who wears tilaka, shikha and kunti over and above the Vaisnava dress or Vaisnava sannyasi must be accepted especially while chanting Hare Krishna mantra with bead bags.

When I eat meat, mamsa, it means, "This animal also will eat me again." You cannot escape this "Life for life." That is the law everywhere. If you have murdered somebody, you must be killed also. You can escape the so-called state laws, but you cannot escape the laws of the material nature.

One of the symptoms of a devotee is that he is kind. If our Godbrother becomes ill it is our duty to help him get the proper medicine and treatment so that he can recover. There is no question of ill-treating of our own Godbrothers simply because they are sick, nor should you allow such neglect to go on. So long we have this material body there will be sickness, but we have to remain on the transceendental platform nevertheless.

So far as you working engagement is concerned, certainly you are not a karmi. Any person whose constant occupation is Krishna Consciusness, he is not a karmi, he is a devotee in all circumstances. You should accept the best source of monetary income and use it for Krishna. That is better sannyasa. Stick to your job and use it for Krishna Consciusness. You are not karmi.

If you are steady either in success or failure, that is called yoga. Don't mind for the success or failure. Do act on behalf on the Supreme Lord. And if you are steady in that position, then your working in spiritual platform is successful.

We take a newspaper and we read what the politician says, so many nonsense things. We waste our time. Srama eva hi kevalam. We should increase our taste for hearing and chanting about Vishnu, Krishna.

I am aware that you are feeling my absence just as I am feeling the absence from you. But in the meantime this must be so and Krishna will provide for you as long as you keep chanting Hare Krishna.
