Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"So when a brahmacārī is married, he is called gṛhastha, or householder. But because a brahmacārī is trained from the very beginning of his life renunciation of material enjoyment, he cannot be absorbed like ordinary man in family life. Ordinary man, they cannot give up the family life or association of woman even up to the end of life. But according to Vedic system, association of woman is allowed only for a certain period, during the youthful days only, just to beget nice children. Because from the age of twenty-five years old up to fifty years, one can beget nice children."

Lecture BG 07.01 - San Francisco
Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"Suppose you have got conception of a sky. But you cannot have a definite idea of the greatness of sky, because your experience and knowledge is gathered by sense perception. In the sky there is no sense perception. Just like we are sitting in this room. Within this room there is sky, but we cannot understand the sky. But if we try to understand this table we can at once understand, because in the table, if I touch, I feel the hardness; the perception is there."

Lecture BG 07.02 - San Francisco
Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"A Kṛṣṇa conscious person should not be fool. If he is required to explain how these universal planets are floating, how this human body is rotating, how many species of life, how they are being evolved... These are all scientific knowledge—physics, botanics, chemistry, astronomy, everything. Therefore Kṛṣṇa says, yaj jṣātvā: if you understand this knowledge, Kṛṣṇa consciousness, then you'll have nothing to know. That means you'll have complete knowledge. We are hankering after knowledge, but if we are in knowledge of Kṛṣṇa consciousness, and if we know Kṛṣṇa, then all knowledge is included."

Lecture SB 06.01.06-15 - San Francisco
Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"So anyone, in a..., however... A dog, in such abominable condition, still, he's joyful. He thinks, "I am very happy." A hog, any animal... We are human beings; we are given better facilities of life. The animals are not given so much facilities by nature, but still, they feel happy. If we say, of course, straight, somebody may be sorry, but this is nature's law. So however abominable condition it may be, one feels that he's happy."

Lecture BS 34 - San Francisco
Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"We can worship Kṛṣṇa with a little flower, with a little fruit, a little water, that's all. How universal it is! A little flower, a little fruit, a little water can be collected by any poor man. You don't require to earn many thousands of dollars to worship Kṛṣṇa. Why Kṛṣṇa will ask you, you contribute dollars or millions of rupees? No. He is full in Himself. He has got everything, complete. So He is not beggar. But He is beggar. In what sense? He is begging your love."

Lecture Excerpt - San Francisco
Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"In the Bhagavad-gītā you will see that this kīrtana is recommended continuous. Satatam. Satatam means always. Either in the imperfect stage or in the perfect stage, the process is one. It is not like the Māyāvādīs, that first of all you chant, and by chanting, when you become yourself God, then there is no chanting—stop. This is Māyāvāda philosophy. This is not real the position. Chanting will continue even in your highest perfectional stage."

Conversation - Seattle
Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"After all, anyone who is coming to Kṛṣṇa consciousness, man or woman, boys or girls, they are welcome. They are very fortunate. You see. And the idea of addressing "prabhu" means "you are my master." That is the... Prabhu means master. And "Prabhupāda" means many masters who bows down at his lotus feet. That is Prabhupāda. So each, everyone shall treat others as "my master." This is the Vaiṣṇava system."

Interview - Seattle
Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"There is no conflict at all. The conflict is between persons who are godless, who does not believe in God. Conflict is there. The conflict is not between East and West; the conflict is between the atheist and the theist. We are preaching Kṛṣṇa consciousness, not that we are trying to replace something by Indian method to Christian method or Jewish method. That is not our policy. This is... In one sense, Kṛṣṇa consciousness movement is the postgraduate study of all religions. What is the method of religion? To accept the authority of God."

Lecture on the Teachings of Lord Caitanya - Seattle
Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"Anyone who speaks exactly what Lord Caitanya said, exactly what Kṛṣṇa said, then he is spiritual master. Just like a teacher who says that 'I have passed M.A'. Now what is the proof? That means if he speaks exactly like persons who have passed M.A. examination, then he is M.A. A medical practitioner who is approved by other medical practitioners in the medical college, he is medical practitioner. Similarly, if you want to test who is spiritual master, you have to see the standard spiritual master, Kṛṣṇa and Lord Caitanya and similar. Even Lord Jesus Christ, there are..., Lord Buddha, they are also spiritual masters, but they spoke in different circumstances. That is different thing. But if you want to know who is a spiritual master, then you have to test him whether he is speaking exactly like the bona fide spiritual master."

Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"Sufferings are always there. Everyone is trying to get out of sufferings, that is a fact. The whole struggle for existence is to get out of the suffering. But there are different kinds of prescription. Somebody says that you get out of the sufferings in this way, somebody says you get out of the sufferings in that way. So there are prescription offered by the modern scientists, by philosophers, by atheists or by theists, by fruitive actors, so many there are. But according to Kṛṣṇa consciousness movement, you can get out of all sufferings if you simply change your consciousness, that's all. That is Kṛṣṇa consciousness. As I have given you several times the example... All our sufferings are due to lack of knowledge, ignorance. That knowledge can be achieved by association of good authorities."
680927 - Lecture - Seattle
Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"Can anybody say in this meeting that he's not servant of anybody or anything? He must be, because that is his constitutional position. But the difficulty is that by serving our senses, there is no solution of the problem, of the miseries. For the time being, I may satisfy myself that I have taken this intoxication, and under the spell of this intoxication I may think that 'I am nobody's servant. I am free', but that is artificial. As soon as the hallucination is gone, he comes to the point again servant. Again servant. So this is our position. But why this struggle is there? I am being forced to serve, but I don't wish to serve. What is the adjustment? The adjustment is Kṛṣṇa consciousness, that if you become servant of Kṛṣṇa, then your aspiration to become master, at the same time your aspiration of freedom, is immediately achieved."

Lecture - Seattle
Our Program Is To Love - 0283
05:49 minutes from a general lecture in Seattle
Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"Our program is to worship with love and devotion Govinda, the original person. Govindam ādi-puruṣaṁ. This is Kṛṣṇa consciousness. We are teaching people to love Kṛṣṇa, that's all. Our program is to love, to place your love in the proper place. That is our program. Everyone wants to love, but he is being frustrated on account of his love being misplaced. People do not understand it. They are being taught, 'First of all, you love your body'. Then little extended, 'You love your father and mother'. Then 'Love your brother and sister'. Then 'Love your society, love your country, love the whole human society, humanity'. But all this extended love, so-called love, will not give you satisfaction unless you reach to the point to love Kṛṣṇa. Then you'll be satisfied."

When Your Lust is Not Fulfilled, Then You Are Angry - 0290
02:24 minutes from a general lecture in Seattle
Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"Kṛṣṇa and gopī, the relationship was so intimate and so unalloyed that Kṛṣṇa Himself admitted, 'My dear gopīs, it is not in My power to repay you about your loving affairs'. Kṛṣṇa is the Supreme Personality of Godhead. He became bankrupt, that 'My dear gopīs, it is not possible for Me to repay your debts which you have created by loving Me'. So that is the highest perfection of love. Ramyā kācid upāsanā vraja-vadhū (Caitanya-maṣjusā). I'm just describing the mission of Lord Caitanya. He's giving us instruction, His mission, that the only lovable object is Kṛṣṇa and His land Vṛndāvana. And the process of loving Him is the vivid example, the gopīs. Nobody can reach. There are different stages of devotees, and gopīs are supposed to be on the highest platform. And amongst the gopīs, the supreme is Rādhārāṇī. Therefore nobody can surpass the love of Rādhārāṇī."
