Srila Prabhupada's Quote Of The Day

June 26

Innocent men, women, they are kept in that factory simply for livelihood. A little work will provide his needs. Nature has given so much facility. They can grow little food anywhere. The cows are there in the pasturing ground. Take milk and live peacefully. Why you open factories?

New Vrindavana, June 26, 1976

As soon as you offer yourself to be enjoyed by Krishna as servant, according to His order you serve, then immediately you are in the spiritual world. If you want to remain in the spiritual world, this temple is the spiritual world. We are not living in Melbourne. This temple is not Melbourne. It is Vaikuntha. It is Vrindavana. So if you stick to this temple service, Krishna's service, then you are not in this material world.

If the wife is helpful in the spiritual progress of life, she is the best friend and philosopher. So in Krishna Consciousness the wife is never a burden, but she is completely a counterpart.

In the Vedic conception of Grhastha, householder, it is recommended that a householder shall see that even a lizard living in the room or even a snake living in that house should not starve. They should be also given food. And what to speak of others?

A Spiritual Master is always liberated. In any condition of His life He should not be mistaken as ordinary human being. This position of a Spiritual Master is achieved by three processes: Sadhana siddha - one who is liberated by executing the regulative principle of devotional service; Krpa siddha - one who is liberated by the mercy of Krsna or His devotee; Nitya siddha - one who is never forgetful of Krsna throughout his whole life. These are the three features of the perfection of life.

In Vrindavana, when we walk on the street, the cartsmen, the milkmen carrying milk, immediately they'll offer namaskar, "Swamiji". The other day we were walking and we entered one field, just for walking. So the villagers, the cultivators, they came to congratulate us and receive us. "Swamiji, it is our great fortune that you have come to our field". But in your country if I would have entered in another's place, perhaps they would have brought charge of trespass or might have shot us down. So that is the different system. That by birthright they are Krishna conscious in Vrinvadan.

You are mine and I am Krishna's, therefore you are also Krishna's.

Horse is controlled by the mouth. Therefore you have seen the harnesses are fixed in the mouth, the driver controls the mouth and the horse goes. So Krishna was a boy. How did He know that "This demon Kesi has come in the shape of a horse. If I have to control him, I will have to control his mouth". So He pushed His hand within the mouth of the horse, and the horse felt it was just like a hot iron bar, so he died. Similarly, when Krishna fought with Aristasura, He knew that to control the bull you have to control the horns, so He took up the horns and killed him. This is svabhaviki, natural. He knows everything.
