Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura Prabhupada

We are mere labourers; we are the peons of bhagavat-katha.

My real business is to establish temples in everyone’s heart.

Life is for the glorification of topics on Hari.
If that is stopped, then what need is there to carry on life.

Physical illness with Hari-bhajana is preferred to physical fitness sans Hari-bhajana.

Our span of life on earth is short. Our life will be crowned with success

If the body wears out with constant discourses on Hari.

We are here on earth not to work as artisans for making big buildings.

With wood and stone but to work only as messengers of the teachings of Sri Caitanya Deva.

We are put to test and trial in this world.
Only those who attend the kirtana of the devotees can succeed.

A psychopath is neither a guru or a preacher.

To transform the adverse desires of the jivas is the supreme duty of the most merciful. To rescue one person from the stronghold of Mahamaya is an act of super benevolence,far superior to opening innumerable hospitals.

Every spot on earth where discourses on God are held is a place of pilgrimage.

Possession of objects not related to Krishna is our main malady.

Let me not desire anything but the highest good for my worst enemies.

Unless we are devoted to God, secularism shall not leave us.

Those favored by God find their paths set by thorns.

There is no peace or happiness in our worldly life.
Circumstances create turmoil and annoyance.

Chant the maha-mantra loudly and with attachment.This will drive away inertia, worldly evils and pests.

Be indifferent to bazaar gossips, stick firmly to your cherished goals,no lack or impediments of the world will ever stand in your way.

Pay due respects to the extroverts of the world, but do not be appreciative of their manners and conduct.
They are to be shaken off from your mind.

A devotee feels the presence of God everywhere, but one averse to the Lord denies His existence anywhere.

You cannot appreciate transcendental matters with the reasoning of the world.
It is sheer nonsense to decry them with the measuring stick of your intellect.

To recite the name of Sri Krishna is bhakti.

Look within. Amend yourself, rather than pry into the fragilities of others.

In this world of Maya, averse to the Lord, full of trials and tribulations, only patience, humility and respect for others are our friends for Hari-bhajana.

The Lord, Gaurasundara, puts His devotees in various difficulties and associations to test their patience and strength of mind. Success depends on their good fortune.

When faults in others misguide and delude you,have patience, introspect, find faults in yourself.
Know that others cannot harm you unless you harm yourself.

I wish that every selfless, tender-hearted person of Gaudiya Math will be prepared to shed two hundred gallons of blood for the nourishment of the spiritual corpus of every individual of this world.

There has not been, there will not be, such benefactors of the highest merit as Caitanya Mahaprabhu and His devotees have been. The offer of other benefits is only a deception; it is rather a great harm, whereas the benefit done by Him and His followers
is the truest and greatest eternal benefit. This benefit is not for one particular country,
causing mischief to another; but it benefits the whole universe.
