Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"The human being should understand that 'I am mūḍha, so I'll have to learn'. And the Vedas says, 'Then go to guru'. Tad-vijñānārthaṁ sa gurum evābhigacchet: (MU 1.2.12) 'You must go if you want to learn'. And if he remains mūḍha and speculates, then he remains mūḍha. He never gets the enlightenment. He remains continually... Mūḍhā janmani janmani mām aprāpyaiva (BG 16.20). He cannot get God. Life after life, he will go on like that, mūḍha."

Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"Whatever direction is there, you take that. The medicine is given. Doctor gives direction, 'So many drops you can take'. Now you say, 'Oh, the good medicine, let me eat the whole thing, I can become cured immediately'. Then you die. You have to take, enjoy—but according to direction. God does not say that 'You don't enjoy'. You are, what is called, ānandamayo 'bhyāsāt (Vedānta-sūtra 1.1.12). A living entity means ānandamaya, enjoyment. But that ānanda, where it is permanent ānanda, how we have to reach that permanent ānanda, that is being taught. Otherwise, you foolish, you'll eat the whole medicine and die. That's all."

"Just like the flies, they are finding out where is sore, and the bees, they are finding out where there is honey. So two animals, they have got two business: fault-finding and collecting the good things. These are two... Just like creature. They are two classes. Similarly, there are many rascals who are simply fault-finding."

"Anyone who can see that this unfavorable condition of life is also another favor of Kṛṣṇa... Tat te 'nukampāṁ su-samīkṣamāṇaḥ (SB 10.14.8). 'Even there is some suffering, it is not given by Kṛṣṇa. I am suffering on account of my past misdeeds, and Kṛṣṇa is so kind that I would have suffered many hundred thousand times more than the present suffering, but Kṛṣṇa is adjusting the whole thing by little suffering.' This is the vision of devotee."

Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"Bhakti does not depend on age or on advanced knowledge, or richness, or so many other things—janmaiśvarya-śruta-śrī (SB 1.8.26), to take birth in high family, aristocracy, and to become rich, to become beautiful, to become very learned scholar. These things are material assets, but spiritual life does not depend on these things."

Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"It is so easy to go back to home, back to Godhead. It is not very difficult task at all. If you cannot do anything—if you cannot read books, if you cannot understand philosophy, if your behavior is not on the standard—still, if you simply offer your obeisances before the Deity, you make progress. You make progress, undoubtedly."

Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"The guru, as specified by Caitanya Mahāprabhu, that is not very difficult, who is guru. Caitanya Mahāprabhu said,
yāre dekha, tāre kaha 'kṛṣṇa'-upadeśa
āmāra ājñāya guru hañā tāra' ei deśa
(CC Madhya 7.128)

He is guru. One who is strictly following the instruction of Caitanya Mahāprabhu, and after following Him, he is just delivering the instruction as Kṛṣṇa has said, then you become guru. It is not difficult. Caitanya Mahāprabhu has ordered everyone. Therefore our process is to follow Caitanya Mahāprabhu, and then try to understand Kṛṣṇa's instruction."

Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"So this is an opportunity, this human form of life, to decide where you want to go. Are you going to hell or heaven or back to home, or back to Godhead? That you have to decide. This is human intelligence, not like working like cats and dogs and dying like cats and dogs. That is not human life. Human life is meant for to decide where you want to go next. By the evolutionary process you have come to this human form of life. Jalajā nava-lakṣāni sthāvarā lakṣa-viṁśati (Padma Purāṇa). By going through so many, 8,400,000 species of life, you have got this human form of life. Now you decide where you go."

Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"One should not be falsely proud. Everyone... Material world means everyone is falsely proud. Everyone is thinking, āḍhyo 'smi dhanavān asmi ko 'sti mama samaḥ. Everyone. This is the disease. 'I am the richest', 'I am the powerful', 'I am the very intelligent'. Everything, 'I am'. This is called ahaṅkāra. Ahaṅkāra vimudhātmā kartāham iti manyate (BG 3.27). This false prestige, when one is absorbed with false things, he becomes vimūḍha, rascal. Ahaṅkāra-vimūḍhātmā kartāham iti manyate. This is false prestige. We have to give up this false prestige."

Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"Kṛṣṇa does not require our service, but if we give some service to Kṛṣṇa, that is our benefit. This is the formula. Don't think that Kṛṣṇa is very much obliged. But He feels obliged. Why? Aviduṣaḥ. We are all fools and rascals. We are thinking that we are giving some service. No. We cannot give any. We are so insignificant that we cannot. He's unlimited, and we are very, very limited, teeny. But still, just the small child gives something to the father... It is father's property, but still, the father is very glad that 'This child is giving me a lozenges'. He thinks, 'This is my big property', (laughter)."

Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"This is Kṛṣṇa's desire. He gives the four principles, that 'Always think of Me', man-manā, 'and become My devotee', mad-bhakta, mad-yājī, 'worship Me', and mad-yāji... Man-manā bhava mad-bhakto mad-yājī māṁ namaskuru (BG 18.65): 'Just offer little obeisances. These four principles will deliver you from this bondage of material existence' and, mām evaiśyasi asaṁśaya, 'without any doubt, you'll come back to Me'. So simple thing. It is not at all difficult. This child, he can do this. Old man can do this. Learned man can do this, without any knowledge. Even an animal can do it. Very simple. Bhakti-yoga is very simple."
