"A person in Kṛṣṇa consciousness should not be attached either to the good result or bad result because even if I want good result, that is my attachment. And of course, if there is bad result, we haven't got any attachment, but sometimes we lament. That is our attachment. That is our attachment. So one has to transcend both from the good result and the bad result. How it can be done? It can be done. Just like if you are working on account of some big firm. Suppose you are a salesman. You are working on behalf of that big firm. Now, suppose if you make one million dollars profit, you have no attachment for that because you know that 'This profit goes to the proprietor'. You have no attachment. Similarly, if there is some loss, you also know that 'I have nothing to do with the loss. It goes to the proprietor'. Similarly, if we work on account of Kṛṣṇa, then I shall be able to give up the attachment for the result of the work."
"Gold, either in Iran or in India, gold is gold. You cannot say 'Iranian gold' or 'Indian gold'. That is not possible. Similarly, when you say 'Iranian spiritual culture' and 'Indian spiritual culture', the common point is spiritual culture. Spiritual culture is one. It cannot be Iranian, Indian, or anywhere belonging to some sycophant. Just like this moon. This moon is now on Iran. But that does not mean it's Iranian moon. Or the sun, it does not mean Iranian sun. Moon is one. Either in India or in Iran, the moon is moon. You cannot say 'Iranian moon' or 'Indian moon'. So spiritual culture is one, and material culture is one."
