"Sri Krishna Himself teaches us as the instructing spiritual master from within and without. From within He teaches as Paramatma, our constant companion, and from without He teaches from Bhagavad-gita as the instructing spiritual master."

"Show yourself as an ideal Vaisnava, then you are my representative in full. We are not after titles and designations. We must teach by personal example. Do this and the future of our movement will be glorious."
"Narayana understood Dhruva's sincerity & sent Narada to initiate him. This Krishna Consciousness is a parallel process of worshiping the Supreme Lord & the Spiritual master simultaneously."
"If your parents don't receive you as their beloved son you shall live with me. I don't wish to keep you in that blazing fire. At least I shall not make your life miserable even though I am not as rich as your parents."
"Lord Caitanya has warned. Don't mix with any Swami who has no knowledge of Krsna Consciousness. Their speaking is simply maya. Anyone who listens to their philosophy is doomed, all devotion dries up."
"Our philosophy of political leadership is of the highest standard and morality. Now we shall begin to educate the politicians. Continue increasing this political activity, it is very pleasing to me".
"I am so much pleased that you are carrying on the Street Sankirtana Party even though you have sometimes only one companion. This spirit is most satisfactory so please go on and you may rest assured that Krsna will always help you in any difficulty.
"Just like the tracks of a railroad line, both must be there, Bhagavata marga and Pancaratriki marga - one side Bhagavata book, the other side Deity worship. Unless you follow both lines simultaneously you cannot make any progress in Devotional Service."
"To feel separation from the Spiritual Master is very good position. That means one who is in pure love with Krishna and His Representative, Spiritual Master, he thinks always of Them. And this thinking process is Krishna consciousness."
"You should keep everything very clean. That is the first business. The prasadam room should be immediately cleaned after taking prasadam. Every room should be as clean as a mirror otherwise you are inviting rats."
"The Ravana class want Sita without Rama and therefore havoc. We want to perfect everything with Krishna Consciousness. Our policy is without Krishna, everything is zero. But zero by the side of Krishna, then it is 10, 1,000, 1,000,000."
"I have come here on the order of my Spiritual Master, I am nonentity; there is no credit for me, all the credit goes to my Spiritual Master. He has arranged everything, and I am simply to abide by His order."
"Let us try our best to spread this Krishna Consciousness movement with sincerity and Krishna will give us all facilities. After all, it is Krishna's business. Our sincere desire is to serve Him and this is our bona fide position."
"So people might think you mad if they heard of your crazy work. So spiritual activities are like that. But Krishna can adjust opposing elements. By His inconceivable power, yes can be no, and no can be yes."
"I have noted your several complaints against the devotees but it would be better for you to set the example by your personal behavior and try to reform the others, not by criticism, but by your friendly behavior."
"All Gurukula students should be educated free of charge. We must give free education to our children. We cannot enforce that if you do not pay, then take back your child. Rather the opposite."
