Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"The whole plan should be that people should understand that he is not animal, first thing. This is education. In the animal society there is no religion, but as soon as you claim to be in human society or civilized society, then there must be religion. Economic development secondary, next. Of course, according to medical consciousness they say ātmānam, ātmānam means they say 'body'. But ātmā means this body, this mind, and the soul. Real meaning of ātmā is soul. So there is a verse, ātmānaṁ sarvato rakṣet: 'First of all try to save your soul'. I think Lord Jesus Christ has also spoken something like that. 'If, after gaining everything, one loses his spirit soul, then what does he gain?' Is it not?"

Lecture SB 01.05.11 - New Vrindaban
Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"In the beginning we chant in offensive stage—the ten kinds of offenses. But that does not mean that we shall not chant. Even there are offenses, we shall go on chanting. That chanting will help me to get out of all offenses. Of course, we must take care that we may not commit offenses. Therefore this list of ten kinds of offenses are given. We should try to avoid. And as soon as it is offenseless chanting, then it is liberated stage. That is liberated stage. And after liberated stage, the chanting will be so pleasing because that is on the transcendental platform that actual love of Kṛṣṇa and God will be relished."

08:32 minutes from a lecture on SB 01.05.12-13 in New Vrindaban
Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"Just like the dead body's decorated, the sons of that dead body may see him, that 'Oh, my father is smiling'. (laughter) But he does not know where his father has already gone. You see? So this material civilization is just like decorating the dead body. This body is dead. That is a fact. So long the soul is there, it is working, it's moving. Just like your coat. It is dead. But so long it is on your body, it appears the coat is moving. The coat is moving. But if somebody is very much astonished, 'Oh, how nice the coat is moving!" (laughter) He does not know the coat cannot move. The coat is dead. But because the man is there who is putting on the coat, therefore the coat is moving, the pant is moving, the shoe is moving, the hat is moving. Similarly, this body is dead. It is numbered: this dead body will remain for such and such time. That is called duration of life. But people are interested with this dead body."

"Each and every word of Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam, full of volumes of explanation, each and every word. This is Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam, vidyā-bhāgavatāvadhi. One's learning will be understood when he's able to understand Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam. Vidyā, vidyā means learning, not this science, that science. When one can understand Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam in true perspective, then he's to be understood that he has finished his all educational advancement."

Lecture SB 01.05.13 - New Vrindaban
Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"We are spirit soul. We cannot be under any material condition. Just like our normal condition is healthy life, not under feverish condition. That is abnormal life. If one is attacked with fever, that is not his normal life. That is temporary, abnormal life. Actual life is healthy life. We should nicely eat. We shall nicely sleep. We shall work very nicely. We..., our brain must work very nicely. These are healthy signs. But when I cannot work nicely, I cannot sleep nicely, I cannot work nicely, I cannot act my brain very nicely, that means abnormal condition. So at that time, he requires to be treated by expert physician. So here is the expert physician, Nārada Muni. And he is advising his disciple to make him expert. This is called paramparā system."

Lecture SB 01.05.14 - New Vrindaban
Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"Śukadeva Gosvāmī attained salvation and perfection simply by chanting. This chanting means describing the glories of the Lord from Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam. So he says, pravartamānasya guṇair anātmanas tato bhavān darśaya ceṣṭitam: 'People are so much entangled by the modes of material nature. So in order to get them free from this entanglement, you show the path. Simply let them hear. Let them give aural reception to the wonderful activities of the Lord'. That activity... Because absolute... Kṛṣṇa is Absolute Truth. So Kṛṣṇa and Kṛṣṇa's activities are the same because it is absolute. It is not duality. In the material world, myself and my activities are different. But it is the... This world is dual world. But in the absolute world, Kṛṣṇa and Kṛṣṇa's pastimes, Kṛṣṇa and Kṛṣṇa's name, Kṛṣṇa and Kṛṣṇa's quality, Kṛṣṇa and Kṛṣṇa's fame, they're all Kṛṣṇa. Kṛṣṇa and Kṛṣṇa's associates, they're all Kṛṣṇa. Kṛṣṇa is cowherds boy. So Kṛṣṇa and the cows, they're all Kṛṣṇa. That we have to learn. They're not different from Kṛṣṇa. Kṛṣṇa and the gopīs, they're all Kṛṣṇa. Ānanda-cinmaya-rasa-pratibhāvitābhiḥ (BS 5.37). So we have to understand that."

Lecture SB 01.05.15 - New Vrindaban
Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"This activity, Kṛṣṇa consciousness activity, is not only pious; it is transcendental. So if you stay on this platform of Kṛṣṇa consciousness, the easy process, just like we are executing in New Vrindaban, chanting, dancing, eating bhāgavata-prasādam, hearing Bhāgavata or Bhagavad-gītā, trying to understand, simple process... It is not very difficult. And you are satisfied with little prasādam, never mind what it is. This process will make you stay firm. So don't deviate. Whatever little regulative principles are there, they are not very difficult. Just stick to this principle, chant Hare Kṛṣṇa, eat prasādam, and your life will be successful. Here is the assurance by Nārada Muni, that 'Even if he falls down, still, there is no loss. But the, on the other side, those who are not in Kṛṣṇa consciousness, if he's very regular businessman or regular worker, so many things, still, his gain is nothing'."

Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"So the statement of Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam that tal labhyate duḥkhavad anyataḥ sukham (SB 1.5.18). You don't try for so-called economic development. You cannot have more than what you are destined to get. It is already settled. This living entity receives different grades of standard of living condition, so they're according to the past karma, daivena, daiva-netreṇa (SB 3.31.1), karmaṇā. So you cannot change that. That nature's law, you cannot change. Why you have got varieties of life, varieties of position, varieties of business. It is destined. Viṣayaḥ khalu sarvataḥ syāt (SB 11.9.29). Viṣaya, these material enjoyment—means eating, sleeping, mating and defending—these... Only standard is different. I am eating something, you are eating something. Maybe, in my calculation, you are eating not very good. In your calculation I am not eating very good. But the eating is same. You are eating. I am eating. So in the material world the standard of happiness, taking the basic principle, it is all the same. But we have created, 'This is good standard. That is bad standard. This is very nice. This is very bad'."
