"World Sankirtana Party does not mean that we have to cover immediately the whole world। The program is that everywhere this Sankirtana Movement should be introduced।"

"Krishna Consciousness is not brought to America in an altered form। It is the bonafide process. If you continue to associate with the devotees you will see practically how you are making very, very nice spiritual advancement."
"Chant Hare Krishna and read our books very carefully। Do not waste your time with this study of monkeys. What will you learn by this? Better to hear from Lord Krishna Himself in Bhagavad-gita."
"My special instruction to you all is that you practice Sankirtana very rhythmically and in a responsive way। That means one should chant first, and others should follow him. That is a very nice system."
"As I have taken this work as my life and soul on the order of my Spiritual Master, similarly if you take my desires as life and soul, then the whole thing is immediately connected with Krsna। That is the meaning of Parampara."
"When Sankirtana is in a troubled area, it is not contradictory to our principles। Rather it is a great service. Lord Nityananda Prabhu, he personally went to troubled area of Jagai and Madhai and he conquered them. He was injured also. So do it very carefully."
"You have asked, is it true that the Spiritual Master remains in the material universe until all of His disciples are transferred to the Spiritual Sky? The answer is yes, this is the rule।"
"Our process is for manufacturing sincere souls। If you are sincere, other sincere souls will come. How is it possible? Simply by following the rules and regulative principles and chanting offenselessly."
"Our mission is to reach the Supreme Planet, in the Spiritual Sky, namely the Abode of Krishna। As such, we cannot compromise that all sorts of meditation gives the same result. There is no Vedic evidence, neither any proof of the Acharya principles."
"One thing is, however, clear, that the Western people are searching after some spiritual enlightenment in the real sense of the term। Bhagavad-gita with the right presentation and the program of Krishna Consciousness is the right prescription, simply we have to administer them with cool head and solid program".
"So far remembering me and Krishna, it should be simultaneous। Those who are sincere souls, Krishna helps them to have a bonafide Spiritual Master, and the bonafide Spiritual Master helps the disciple to approach Krishna. This is the process."
"As our devotees become more devotional, the non-devotees will come to hear। To become advanced means to acquire spiritual strength, and this spiritual strength is for impressing devotional service into the hearts of the fallen souls."
"By chanting and giving prasadam you will get so many devotees। Purity is attractive. Our only asset is our purity. You cannot reach Krsna without being pure, because He is the supreme pure."
"If we can change the materialistic nature of the tongue, by changing of taste and vibration, then automatically the other senses become purified। As such we should try to chant and eat Krishna prasadam as much as possible."
"We want good preachers। Preaching shouldn't depend on me only. My disciples should all become good preachers, and that depends on studying the books nicely so that you can arrive at the right conclusion."
"We want ecstasy, it does not matter where one feels it, this church or the other। But, one who feels the ecstasy of Krishna Consciousness, he finishes his ecstasy of material enjoyment - that is the test."
"This is the sure and certain method। If we simply chant Hare Krishna with karatalas and mrdanga and if we speak from Bhagavad-Gita As It Is, then automatically the people become attracted."
"To serve the Spiritual Master's word is more important than to serve him physically। I do not feel separation from my Guru Maharaja. When I am engaged in His service His pictures give me sufficient strength."
"Live as simply as possible without any exaggeration, regularly hold Krishna Kirtana, and try to convince people about the non-sectarian nature of Krishna Consciousness। That will make you successful."
"Krishna Consciousness is so nice one forgets his material designations and tries to associate with similar Krishna consciousness persons। That means melted on the pure spiritual platform. We hope to bring everyone to such spiritual platform."
"Every second, every moment we are changing the body। Just like in a film thousands of pictures are moving imperceptibly. It looks like the body is moving, and the audience cannot understand that there are so many pictures in the spool."
"The secret of success in Krishna consciousness is to render service to Krishna to the best of our capacity। There is no other alternative to this. The more we render service therefore, the more we are able to advance."
"On the authority of Lord Caitanya and my Spiritual Master, I am requesting my disciples to always stay in the association of devotees and to propagate the Sankirtana movement all over the world, so others may get a chance to become liberated।"
"A Spiritual Master is always liberated। In any condition of His life He should not be mistaken as ordinary human being. This position of a Spiritual Master is achieved by sadhana siddha, krpa siddha, and nitya siddha."
"If somebody is dogmatic and blind follower, then avoid to discuss with them। Better spend that time for enlightening a person who is innocent. Do not enter into the details of New Testament, simply say we agree that God is great."
"The modern education is producing only the adhira class who are neither sober nor educated। Therefore the majority of the population cannot understand how the soul is transmigrating from one body to another."
"You have high intelligence, opulences, birth in the families of the rich nation। Use this opportunity for making life successful and go back to Krishna, back to Home. It is a very scientific movement authorized by the Vedas and accepted by all great acaryas".
"Rest assured this Sankirtana Movement is specifically benedicted by Lord Caitanya for achieving all kinds of success। Stick to the principles seriously and faithfully, and there will be no difficulty."
"Whatever is offered goes through the Spiritual Master। The Spiritual Master offers it to Krishna then Radha Krishna eats, then Caitanya Mahaprabhu eats, then the Spiritual Master eats, and it becomes Mahaprasadam."
"The children should always be instructed by taking advantage of their playful mood and teaching them to play Krsna games like become cowherd boys, cows, or peacocks, and always think of Krsna by playing।"
