"So your business is how to become happy, because by nature you are happy. Diseased condition, that happiness being checked. So this is our diseased condition, this material, conditional life, this body. So as one intelligent person puts himself under the treatment of a physician to get out of the disease, similarly, human life is meant for putting himself to the expert physician who can cure you from your material disease. That is your business. Tasmād guruṁ prapadyeta jijñāsuḥ śreya uttamam (SB 11.3.21). That is the injunction of all Vedic literature. Just like Kṛṣṇa, Kṛṣṇa is teaching Arjuna. Arjuna is surrendering to Kṛṣṇa"
"Kṛṣṇera saṁsāra koro chāḍi anācāra (Bhaktivinoda Ṭhākura). Our propaganda is that let us become the member of Kṛṣṇa's family. That is our program. And if we enter into Kṛṣṇa's family... Just like Kṛṣṇa is enjoying with His consort. So there is nothing negation; everything is there. Kṛṣṇa is eating, Kṛṣṇa is enjoying, Kṛṣṇa is dancing, Kṛṣṇa is offering His prasādam—reciprocation. Nothing is denied. If we live in Kṛṣṇa consciousness then we can live for hundreds, thousands, or any number of years. Actually we do not die. What is death and birth? That is of this body. So we are eternal; Kṛṣṇa is eternal."
"The things are supplied by God because He is giving me all facilities to enjoy this material world to my heart's content by supplying all the ingredients. That is the material condition. So these foolish persons are taking as chance, but it is not chance. God is omnipotent. As soon as He understands that I want this, He gives me some facility so that I get it. So it is not chance. It is by arrangement of superior authority. But because they are atheist, they have no sense of God consciousness, they are taking as chance, that necessity creates that chance; automatically it is coming. Not automatically."
