Niranjana Swami's Quote Of The Day

July 1

It is not only distributing Prabhupada’s books that will spread love of Godhead, but it is by distributing them and preaching with love. Prabhupada wanted us to kick out all other motivations. He wanted us to be free from the desire for profit, fame, and followers. He wanted us to make our hearts one with the spiritual master’s order. He wanted us to manifest symptoms of love. This behavior will change the course of the world.
