Lecture SB 07.09.08 - Montreal
Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"The so-called educated person, they are very much proud of their university degree, but if you ask some of them, 'What you are? Wherefrom you have come to this world, and where you are going next?' Oh, they will say, 'What is this nonsense? I am... I do not know wherefrom I have come, where I am going. I have no concern with that. I am concerned with the present life. That's all'. But actually, we are not this present life. It is only a spot in our journey."

Lecture SB 07.09.08 - Montreal
Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"So after understanding Bhagavad-gītā, if one becomes faithful that "I shall devote my life for service of Kṛṣṇa," then he is eligible to enter into the study of Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam. That means Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam begins from the point where Bhagavad-gītā ends. Bhagavad-gītā ends at the point, sarva-dharmān parityajya mām ekaṁ śaraṇaṁ vraja (BG 18.66). One has to surrender fully unto Kṛṣṇa, giving up all other engagements. Always remember, all other engagement means not that you have to give up. You... Try to understand that Kṛṣṇa said that "You give up everything and surrender unto Me." So that does not mean that Arjuna gave up his fighting capacity. Rather, he took to fighting more vigorously."

"That Govinda is the original Personality of Godhead, and Śyāmasundara, with a flute in His hand, and He is very pastimious, always smiling, and by His smiling He offers you blessings. You also, by seeing His smiling, you remain everlastingly smiling. It is so nice."

Lecture SB 07.09.09 - Montreal
Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"So God is always anxious of your love, not your material things. Śrīla Rūpa Gosvāmī has described that as somebody offers you very nice, palatable dishes, varieties of foodstuff, but unfortunately, if you have no appetite, these are all useless, because you cannot eat, there is no appetite. Similarly, you can make a show of offering so many things to God, but if you have no devotional love, that is not accepted. That is not accepted, because God is not poor. He is not begging from you."

Lecture SB 07.09.10 - Montreal
Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"If a person is a brāhmaṇa, then his natural qualification will be like this. What is that? Satyam: he is truthful. In any circumstances he will be truthful. Even to an enemy he will disclose the secret, "This is the fact." That is truthfulness, not that I am very truthful, but when my interest is jeopardized, I tell lie. That is not truthfulness. Truthfulness means at any circumstances one will speak the plain truth. That is truthfulness. Satya śama."

Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"The material condition is full of anxiety, so anyone who is full of anxiety, he is śūdra. This is the... So if you analyze the present society, that who is not anxiety, full of anxiety, oh, nobody will say that "I am not full of anxiety." "I have got so many anxieties." So that means he is a śūdra. Kalau śūdra-sambhavaḥ (Skanda Purāṇa): "In this age, everyone is śūdra." That is concluded."

Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"Anyone who takes up this endeavor on behalf of God to reclaim these conditioned souls back to Godhead, back to home, he is considered most intimate devotee, dear devotee of the Lord. It is stated in the Bhagavad-gītā, na ca tasmād manuṣyeṣu kaścid me priya-kṛttamaḥ (BG 18.69). If you want to become very dear to Kṛṣṇa or God, then try to take up these missionary activities. What is that? Spread Kṛṣṇa consciousness. Kṛṣṇa will be very much pleased."

Conversation - Montreal
Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"Kṛṣṇa says that svakarmaṇā tam abhyarcya. You just try to worship the Supreme Lord by the result of your occupation. Because Kṛṣṇa requires everything. So if you are a potter, you supply pots. If you are florist, you supply flower. If you are carpenter, you work for temple. If you are washerman, then wash clothing of the temple. Temple is the center, Kṛṣṇa. And everyone gets chance to offer his service. Therefore temple worship is very nice. So this temple should be organized in such a way that we don't require any money. You give your service. That's all. You be engaged in your service. Don't change your service. But you try to serve the-temple means the Supreme Lord—by your occupational duty."

Lecture Excerpt - Montreal
Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"There may be a cloud overcast in the sky for hundred miles, but even hundred miles, is it possible to cover the sun, hundred miles' cloud? The sun is itself so many hundreds of thousand times more than this earth. So māyā cannot cover the Supreme Brahman. Māyā can cover the small particles Brahman. So we may become covered by māyā, or cloud, but the Supreme Brahman is never covered by māyā. That is the difference of opinion between Māyāvāda philosophy and Vaiṣṇava philosophy. The Māyāvāda philosophy says that the Supreme is covered. The Supreme cannot be covered. Then how He becomes supreme? The covering becomes supreme. Oh, there are so many arguments and so many... But we follow that the cloud covers the small particles of sunshine. But sun remains as it is. And we practically see also when we go by jet plane, we are over the cloud. There is no cloud upside. Sun is clear. In the lower status there is some cloud."

Lecture Wedding Paramananda and Satyabhama - Montreal
Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"Our presentation is that this conjugal love between man and woman is not unnatural. It is quite natural, because it is in the Absolute Truth, as we find from Vedic description, that the Absolute Truth, Personality of Godhead, is engaged in conjugal loving affair, Rādhā-Kṛṣṇa. But the same Rādhā-Kṛṣṇa love matter has permeated through matter. Therefore it is perverted reflection. Here in this material world, the so-called love is not actual love; it is lust. Here the male and female are attracted not by love but by lust. So in this Kṛṣṇa consciousness society, because we are trying to approach the Absolute Truth, the lust propensity has to be converted into pure love. That is the proposal."

Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"So this bhāgavata-dharma is very nice, it is universal, it can be accepted by everyone. Unfortunately, so long there was no preaching of this bhāgavata-dharma. Now, by the grace of Kṛṣṇa, Lord Caitanya, the bhāgavata-dharma is now being expanded in the Western countries. I am very glad that boys and girls from this part of the world, they are also embracing, and they are nicely chanting and following the rules and regulation."
