Srila Prabhupada's Quote Of The Day

April 17

In this material world, we are trying to be happy in society, friendship and love. But the happiness we are getting, that is compared with a drop of water in the desert. Our heart desires real pleasure, transcendental bliss. We are hankering after Krishna. That is our inner desire. We are trying to get eternal happiness.

By prasadam distribution you will do service to the Lord, and the public will be pleased upon you as well. Gradually increase the number of guests, and don't deny anyone. Continue in this way: whatever is there, distribute equally-it may not be very sumptuous, but no one should be denied equal portion.

If they insist on touching your feet and there is no other way to avoid, it you can simply remember your predecessor Acharyas and Spiritual Masters and accept them and return namaskara with folded hands. That is the Vaisnava etiquette.

Hearing the vibration of Hare Krishna automatically reminds one of Krishna's Pastimes. Both of them arise simultaneously in the mind when one is sincerely chanting. You cannot make any distinction between listening to the sound and thinking of the Pastimes. But the process is to hear, and then Krishna's Pastimes, Form, Qualities, etc. will automatically come to mind: that is very nice.

I can only suggest, and wherever possible that can be applied, but I do not force anyone. After all, you are working hard to please Krisna only out of love for me, so there can be no question of force if love is here. We should not ever try to force anyone or reduce our Society to an impersonal business exchange. This will kill everything. Our only purpose in every endeavor is simply to make advancement in spiritual life or in pleasing Krisna.

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 Jagannatha has expanded His jurisdiction over the whole world why the so-called servants of Jagannatha should not allow them to see the Lord of the Universe?
