• Krishna consciousness movement is not a passive movement. It is active. We are trying to wake up dormant humankind so that their forgotten Krishna consciousness is revived.

    The residents of the spiritual world are happy to be with Krishna and the cows. They don’t need cars or skyscrapers. Now humanity is only engaged in sense gratification. This is illusion. Real life is the service to the Supreme Lord. We are not bodies but spirit souls. We are eternal living beings blessed with full knowledge and perfect bliss. We have forgotten about our relationship to God, that’s why we are suffering.

  • We distribute books and establish farms all over the world. Books and farms. These are our steady programmes because they can change the world. Simple living and thinking gorgeous – this is our motto. Krishna says, ’krsi-go-raksya-vanijyam vaisya-karma svabhava-jam’ (Bg.18.44.). Farming, cow protection – with this economic problem is solved. If there are educated people, brahmanas the problem of leadership is solved, with great warriors, ksatriyas the problem of defence and with skilful workers the problem of work is solved.’

  • This is what Srila Prabhupada asked his followers to do: ’Grow crops, make the whole land green, introduce the varnasrama system based on spiritual advancement and division of labour according to abilities and live peacefully and satisfied.’
