"It is the etiquette, before speaking anything, the disciple should first of all offer respect to the spiritual master. So offering respect to the spiritual master means to remember some of his activities. Some of his activities. Just like you offer respect to your spiritual master, namas te sārasvate devam gaura-vāṇī-pracāriṇe. This is the activity of your spiritual master, that he is preaching the message of Lord Caitanya Mahāprabhu and he's a disciple of Sarasvatī Ṭhākura. Namas te sārasvate. You should pronounce it sārasvate, not sarasvatī. Sarasvatī is the..., my spiritual master. So his disciple is sārasvate. Sārasvate devam gaura-vāṇī-pracāriṇe. These are the activities. What is the activities of your spiritual master? He's simply preaching the message of Lord Caitanya. That is his business."
Prabhupāda: All these members of the United Nations, everyone is thinking in the bodily concept, 'I am American', 'I am Indian', 'I am Chinese'. So how there will be unity? There cannot be. That is we are proposing, that don't think in the bodily concept of life. Brahma-bhūtaḥ prasannātmā na śocati (BG 18.54): that we are teaching. But they are thinking they have gone to the United Nation, but they are keeping themselves as dogs. There cannot be any peace. They must go on barking against one another. That's all. Nava-yauvana: They are thinking that they have to protect their so-called interest. Prabhupāda: So the dog is also thinking. From three miles he begins to bark, 'Why you are coming here? Don't come. I am protecting my interest'. That mentality is there in the dog; so how you are greater than the dog?
