Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"At the time of death, what you think, you get the body. That is nature's law. Prakṛte... Yaṁ yaṁ vāpi smaran bhāvaṁ tyajaty ante kalevaram (BG 8.6), Kṛṣṇa says. So we have to train up our bhāva, our thoughts. If we keep always in Kṛṣṇa thoughts, then naturally at the time of death we may remember Kṛṣṇa. That is success. Then immediately, tyaktvā dehaṁ punar janma naiti mām eti (BG 4.9). Immediately you are transferred to the Kṛṣṇaloka, and according to your desire, you become amongst the gopīs or the cowherds boys or the cows and the calves. They are all equal. There is no... That is spiritual world. Here there is difference between the man, woman, cows or trees or flowers. No. In the spiritual world there is no such difference. The flower is also devotee, living. The flower wants to serve Kṛṣṇa as flower. The calf wants to serve Kṛṣṇa as calf. The gopīs want to serve Kṛṣṇa as gopī. They are all the same, but according to the varieties."

Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"Kṛṣṇa took charge of the cows, the calfs, although (indistinct). This is the system. He was going with the calfs whole day, playing with the boys and taking care of the cows, in the evening come back. Mother then washes and bathes and gives nice food. And immediately goes to sleep. And Kṛṣṇa is clever. At night He goes to the gopīs. (laughter) Then Mother Yaśodā did not know, when she thought, 'My good son is sleeping'. And the gopīs also would come at a place, and they'll dance. This is called life, childhood life. And when He was grown up, then He was brought to, I mean to say, Mathurā, and He fought with His maternal uncle, killed him, and then His father Vasudeva, took care, sent Him to..., Sāndīpani Muni. He was educated. He was learning every subject every day. Then He was taken to Dvārakā, married so many queens and became king. In the Kṛṣṇa's life, He's always busy. Kṛṣṇa, you'll never find... From the very beginning of His life He's busy killing Pūtanā, Aghāsura, Bakāsura, and His friends, they are confident. They'll enter into the mouth of Aghāsura: 'Oh, Kṛṣṇa is there. He will kill'. This is Vṛndāvana."

Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"Prakteḥ kriyamāṇāni guṇaiḥ karmāṇi sarvaśaḥ (BG 3.27). We are thinking that 'I am the lord of everything'. That is not the fact. The fact is that we have to work under somebody. That is our real position. Jīvera 'svarūpa' haya nitya kṛṣṇa dāsa (CC Madhya 20.108-109). We are worker. We are not enjoyer. But unfortunately we are trying to take the position of enjoyer. That is māyā. That is māyā. And if we agree to work under the direction of Kṛṣṇa, then our original life is revived. That is wanted. The Kṛṣṇa consciousness movement means that we are trying to educate people to change the consciousness. We have got so many desires under different consciousness. So one desire, that 'I am eternal servant of Kṛṣṇa', this is called mukti, as soon as... Kṛṣṇa says, sarva-dharmān parityajya mām ekaṁ śaraṇaṁ vraja (BG 18.66). This is mukti. If we give up all other desires and agree to accept Kṛṣṇa's desires, that mām ekaṁ śaraṇaṁ vraja, 'You surrender unto Me', that is mukti; that is liberation."

Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"This is very secret science, that you have to clear out your path of liberation by controlling the tongue. Then other things will be controlled, the straight line: tongue, then belly, then genital. Therefore in our society we have restricted the tongue: 'Don't eat meat. Don't take intoxication'. And then, the straight line: 'No free use of the genital, illicit sex'. These things are required if you want to be free from this material entanglement. This is called tapasya. Human life is meant for tapasya, not to live like cats and dogs and hogs. That is not human life."

Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"If one is engaged in the devotional service of Vāsudeva, then he immediately becomes vairāgī—no attachment for material things—and knowledge. But most of these rascals, they are nondevotees. The so-called mahānta, he is not mahānta—mohāndha, 'great blind'. So that is the difficulty. Kṛṣṇa consciousness movement is to bring everyone to the stage of devotional service to Vāsudeva. Then it will be all right. Other platform will never be successful. Simply show. It is not fact."
