Quotes Of The Day

Niranjana Swami
Taking Care of Krishna’s Devotees, p. 75

Prabhupada once said to his disciples: “If you love me, I’ll love you. It’s not very difficult to get my love. Just love me and I’ll love you; it won’t be very difficult for you.” Prabhupada showed his love in a very special way: he loved us first. Then he said, “If you love me, I’ll love you.” But there were no illusions in our hearts. We knew that the only way we could love Prabhupada so much was because he loved us first. Therefore it wasn’t so difficult to love Prabhupada. Prabhupada was just radiating his love for us and love for Krishna.

Srila Prabhupada
Lecture on Bhagavad-gita 4.27, Bombay, April 16, 1974

Everyone becomes a servant of the senses just beginning from the tongue. They cannot control the tongue. They eat anything and everything. Therefore they cannot control others senses also. This is the experience of big, big yogis. Therefore in the yoga practice, yama-niyama... In yoga practice also, it is forbidden, not to allow the tongue to eat anything and everything. No. That is not possible. Similarly, we also ask our devotees not to allow your tongue to touch anything except krsna-prasadam.
