Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"Just like a child wants to do something. The father says, 'Don't do it', I have said several times. Reluctantly, 'All right, do it'. I have given this example of my practical experience in 1925 or '26 when my son was two years old. There was a table fan, 'I would like to touch it'. And I said, 'No, don't touch'. This is child. So, but it's a child. He again tried to touch it. So there was a friend, he said, 'Just slow the speed and let him touch'. So I did it, slowed the speed and he touched—tung! Then he would not touch. You see? So this sanction was given, 'Touch it', reluctantly. Now he gets experience and I ask him, 'Touch again?'. 'No.' So this sanction. All of us who have come to this material world, it is like that. Reluctantly. Therefore God comes again to inform these rascals that 'Now you have tried so much. Better give up this, come to Me again'. Sarva-dharmān parityajya (BG 18.66). Sanction was given, certainly, and he has experience, very bitter, but still he won't... This is obstinacy. Dog's mentality."
