Lecture - London
Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"Your life will be full of knowledge, transcendental, blissful knowledge: vidyā-vadhū-jīvanam. ānandāmbudhi-vardhanaṁ: and the transcendental bliss will increase, āmbudhi. āmbudhi means ocean. As the ocean increases on the full-moon night, similarly, when your knowledge will be like full moon, your ānanda will also increase. So these things will be achieved, paraṁ vijayate śrī-kṛṣṇa-saṅkīrtanam: 'All glories to the chanting of Hare Kṛṣṇa mantra'. So please accept our request and try to chant and be happy."

Lecture SB 02.01.01-5 - Boston
Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"I am so pleased that you are doing things just to my satisfaction. And stick to this principle and Kṛṣṇa will bless you, sure. Our line of action is not difficult: chanting sixteen rounds regularly, following the four restrictive principles, take prasādam, read books—we have got so many books—speak, discuss about the subject matter amongst yourself, and this is the process."

Conversation A - Boston
Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"We speak of illusion, māyā. This is illusion, that "I am this body, and anything in relation of this body..." I have got special relationship with certain woman, so I think, "She is my wife. I cannot do without her." Or another woman from whom I have taken birth, "She is my mother." Similarly father, similarly sons. In this way, country, society, at the most, humanity. That's all. But all these things are illusion, because they are in bodily relationship. Yasyātmā-buddhiḥ kunape tri-dhātuke sa eva go-kharaḥ (SB 10.84.13). Those who are passing on on this illusory condition of life, they are compared with the cows and the asses. So our first business is to wake up the general mass of people from this illusory condition of life. So Back to Godhead is specially meant for that purpose. We are pushing on Back to Godhead to the general mass of people to the first condition, first status of enlightenment."

Lecture to International Student Society - Boston
Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"Those who have taken to Kṛṣṇa consciousness seriously, even there are some faults, still, they are saintly persons. That is the recommendation of Kṛṣṇa. Because that fault may be due to his past habits, but that is being stopped. Just like you make the switch off, no more electric current will act, but the fan still gives some rounds due to the past force. Similarly, a Kṛṣṇa consciousness person, even if he's found in fault, Kṛṣṇa says, "No." Sādhur eva sa mantavyaḥ (BG 9.30). "He's saintly person, sādhu." Why? Now, the process he has taken up, that will cure him in due course of time. Śaṣvac-chāntiṁ nigacchati."
