"Material life means satisfying our own senses, and vairāgya-vidyā, or devotional service, means satisfying Kṛṣṇa's senses. That's all. What is the difference between material so-called love and Rādhā-Kṛṣṇa love? The difference is, in the material world, both the parties, they are trying to satisfy their own senses. It doesn't matter. When a boy loves a girl or a girl loves a boy, the motive is his or her own sense satisfaction. But the gopīs, their view is... Not only gopīs; all the cowherds boys, Mother Yaśodā, Nanda Mahārāja, the Vṛndāvana party. So all of them ready to satisfy Kṛṣṇa."
"So this boy, although born in the family of atheist—his father was great atheist—but because he was bestowed benediction by a great devotee, Nārada, he became a great devotee. Now he took the opportunity of spreading Kṛṣṇa consciousness where? In his school. In his school. He was five years old boy, and as soon as he would get opportunity he would spread Kṛṣṇa consciousness to his classfellows. That was his business. And so many times the father of Prahlāda Mahārāja called the teachers, 'So, what education you are giving to my child? Why he is chanting Hare Kṛṣṇa?' (laughter) 'Why you are spoiling my boy?' (laughter) You see? So don't think that I am spoiling these boys and girls by teaching them Hare Kṛṣṇa. (laughter)."
