Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"So Kṛṣṇa is helping from without, from within. Within, He is as Supersoul, and without, as spiritual master. So He is ready to help you, both ways. Utilize His mercy. Then your life is perfect. He is ready to help you, from within and from without. Kṛṣṇa is so kind. The kindness, the mercifulness of Kṛṣṇa, nobody can repay. In every birth, He is with me, canvassing: 'Why you are acting whimsically? Just turn towards Me'. Therefore He's going along with the living entity in every kind of body—either as demigod's body or a hog's body, still, Kṛṣṇa is there. Sarvasya cāhaṁ hṛdi sanniviṣṭhaḥ (BG 15.15)."

Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"Material world means these five elements, gross and subtle. Earth, water, air, fire, sky, these are gross. And mind, intelligence and ego, these are subtle. These elements, material elements, Kṛṣṇa says, bhinnā me prakṛtir aṣṭadhā (BG 7.4): 'These material elements, they are separated, but they are My energy. They are My energy'. The same example: Just like cloud. Cloud is created by the sun. It is sun's energy which creates the cloud. You know. By temperature the seawater is evaporated, forms into gas. That is cloud. So cloud is created by the energy of the sun, but when there is cloud you cannot see the sun; sun is covered. Similarly, material energy is Kṛṣṇa's energy. But when you become covered by this material energy, you do not see Kṛṣṇa. This is the position."

Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"We are giving the right information how human being can be really happy. This is end. It is not religious sentiment. Religion means a kind of faith. Today I am Hindu; tomorrow I am Christian; next day I am Muhammadan. What benefit I may get by changing so-called faith? Unless I understand what is my constitutional position, why I am suffering, how to get out of it... That is real life. Kṛṣṇa consciousness movement is that. It is not a sentimental religious faith. It is not like that. It is absolutely necessary for the human being. We are talking of human being because without being a human being, nobody will be able... The cats and dogs, they will not be able to understand the problem. In the human form of life you can make solution of all the problems of life. It is a science, how to make that solution. That we are teaching."

Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"Mahājano yena gataḥ sa panthāḥ (CC Madhya 17.186). Vaiṣṇava should follow his previous mahājana, authority. That is Vaiṣṇavism. We don't manufacture ideas. We don't commit such rascaldom. We simply accept the behavior or the activities of previous ācārya. There is no difficulty. There is no difficulty. So in the fighting principle, Arjuna is fighting for Kṛṣṇa. He is following the previous fighting ācārya, Hanumānji. Therefore he has depicted his flag with Hanumān, that 'Hanumānji, Vajrāṅgajī, kindly help me'. This is Vaiṣṇavism. 'I have come here to fight for Lord Kṛṣṇa. You fought also for the Lord, kindly help me'. This is the idea. Kapi-dhvajaḥ. So any activities of the Vaiṣṇava, they should always pray to the previous ācārya, 'Kindly help me. Kindly...' This is..., Vaiṣṇava is always thinking himself helpless. Helpless. And begging help from the previous ācārya."

Lecture BG 01.23 - London
Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"Kṛṣṇa is unlimited. When you join with Kṛṣṇa in His rāsa dance as gopīs, or as cowherds boy, play with Him, or become His father and mother, Yaśodā, Nanda Mahārāja, Yaśodā-rāṇī, or His..., become servant, or even become like water, Yamunā, or land in Vṛndāvana and trees or fruits or flowers, any way, or cows and calves... Join with Kṛṣṇa. Then you get ānanda, real ānanda. Ānandamayo 'bhyāsāt (Vedānta-sūtra 1.1.12). Sac-cid-ānanda-vigraha (Bs. 5.1). That is the description in all Bhāgavatam, how the Kṛṣṇa's associates are enjoying life. Kṛta-puṇya-puñjāḥ (SB 10.12.11). Śukadeva Gosvāmī said, 'These boys who are playing with Kṛṣṇa, oh, they are not ordinary boys'. Kṛta-puṇya-puñjāḥ: 'They have amassed the effects of pious activities for millions and trillions of births. Now they have come to play with Kṛṣṇa'. So that opportunity is there in bhakti-yoga. Kṛṣṇa is anxious to take you back. Why you are wasting time, economic development?"

Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"Strī means which expands. Vistara, expands. I am alone. I accept wife, strī, and with her cooperation I expand. So one who helps me to expand, that is called strī. Every Sanskrit word has got meaning. Why woman is called strī? Because she helps, expanding myself. How expanding? Dehāpatya-kalatrādiṣu (SB 2.1.4). I get my children. First of all I was affectionate to my body. Then, as soon as I get a wife, I become affectionate to her. Then, as soon as I get children, I become affectionate to children. In this way I expand my affection for this material world. This material world, attachment. It is not required. It is a foreign thing. This material body is foreign. I am spiritual. I am spiritual, ahaṁ brahmāsmi. But because I wanted to lord it over the material nature, Kṛṣṇa has given me this body. Daiva-netreṇa (SB 3.31.1). He is giving you body. He is giving the body of Brahmā, He is giving you the body of ant—as you desire."

Conversation with George Harrison - London
Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
Prabhupāda: So I'll have to transmigrate. So I can transmigrate to the higher planetary system. I can transmigrate amongst the ghost and evil spirit. Or I can transmigrate ordinary life. Or I can transmigrate to the kingdom of God. Everything is open.
George: It's a good deal. It's a good, fair deal.
Prabhupāda: Ah. So why I shall not transmigrate to..., back to home, back to Godhead? Why shall I go to the... This is the policy. If I have to endeavor in this life for my next life, why not endeavor for next life go back to Kṛṣṇa and live with Him eternally, blissfully? Eh? If I have to work for some next life, then why not work... And it is so easy in this age. Kīrtanād eva kṛṣṇasya mukta-saṅgaḥ paraṁvrajet (SB 12.3.51). Simply by chanting this Hare Kṛṣṇa mantra he becomes liberated from all contamination and goes back to home, back to Godhead.

Lecture SB 01.02.06 - London
Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"Now, at the present moment, every one of us, we are under the control of the material energy. You can understand it very easily. Just like government. The government, that is one energy working. Similarly, the prison house, that is also another energy working. And the citizens, that is also another, another energy working. But the citizens are marginal. They can remain outside the prison walls and inside the prison walls. Therefore they are called marginal. When you are abiding by the laws of the government, you are free. You are not abiding by the laws of the government, you are within the prison house. So you are at liberty. Either... That is your choice. Government has got university, as well as the criminal department. Government does not canvass; rather, government canvasses that "You come to the university. Be educated. Be advanced." But it is our choice we sometimes go to the prison house. It is not government's fault. Similarly, those who have come to this material world, they are all supposed to be criminals, disobedient to the laws of God."
