Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"Spiritual master is not a new invention. It is simply following the orders of the spiritual master. So all my students present here who are feeling so much obliged... I am also obliged to them because they are helping me in this missionary work. At the same time, I shall request them all to become spiritual master. Every one of you should be spiritual master next. And what is that duty? Whatever you are hearing from me, whatever you are learning from me, you have to distribute the same in toto without any addition or alteration. Then all of you become the spiritual master. That is the science of becoming spiritual master. Spiritual master is not very... To become a spiritual master is not very wonderful thing. Simply one has to become sincere soul. That's all."

Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"The Bhagavad-gītā says at the ultimate end, sarva-dharmān parityajya mām ekaṁ śaraṇaṁ vraja (BG 18.66) 'My dear Arjuna...' He is teaching to Arjuna—not only Arjuna, but all human society—that 'you give up your all manufactured occupational duties. You simply agree to My proposal, and I shall give you all protection'. It does not mean that we lose our individuality. Just like Kṛṣṇa says to Arjuna, 'You do it', but He does not force him, 'You do it'. 'If you like, you do it'. Kṛṣṇa does not touch your independence. He simply requests you, 'You do it'. So we can become happy and peaceful by keeping our individuality if we dovetail our consciousness with the Supreme Consciousness."

Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
Prabhupāda: If mantra has got potency, all people should take advantage of it. Why it should be secret?
George Harrison: All people can get the mantras that we have, but it's just they must get it from somebody else. We can't give it to them, but it is available for everyone.
Prabhupāda: Yes. Mantra, if it is valuable, it is valuable for everybody. Why it should be for a particular person?
John Lennon: If all mantras are... All mantras just the name of God. Whether it's a secret mantra or an open mantra, it's all the name of God. So it doesn't really make much difference, does it, which one you sing?
Prabhupāda: No. Just like in drug shop they sell all medicine for disease, curing disease. But still, you have to take doctor's prescription to take a particular type of medicine. They will not supply you. If you go to a drug shop and you say, "I am diseased. You give me any medicine," that is not... He'll ask you, "Where is your prescription?" So similarly, in this age, in Kali-yuga age, this mantra, Hare Kṛṣṇa mantra, is recommended in the śāstras, and great stalwart—we consider Him the incarnation of Kṛṣṇa-Caitanya Mahāprabhu, He preached this. Therefore our principle is everyone should follow. Mahājano yena gataḥ sa panthāḥ (CC Madhya 17.186). We should follow the footprints of great authorities. That is our business.

Lecture SB 05.05.01 - Tittenhurst
Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"The higher and lower grades are calculated in terms of Kṛṣṇa consciousness. Consciousness is there everywhere, every living entity. Not only human being, but also animals, the consciousness is there. But the difference is, consciousness without Kṛṣṇa is lower grade, and consciousness of Kṛṣṇa in different degrees, they are higher grade. And when the consciousness is completely Kṛṣṇa, that is the highest position, or that is the real position of living entity."

Lecture SB 05.05.01-2 - Tittenhurst
Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"The Kṛṣṇa consciousness means whatever is received through the mercy of God, we should be satisfied. That's all. Therefore we prescribe that our students should be married. Because that is a problem. Sex life is a problem. So this marriage in every society, either Hindu society or Christian society or Muhammadan, marriage is done under religious rituals. That means one should be satisfied: 'Oh, God has sent me this man as my husband'. And the man should think that 'God has sent me this woman, this nice woman, as my wife. Let us live peacefully'. But if I want, 'Oh, this wife is not good. That girl is nice', 'This man is not good. That man is good', then the whole thing is spoiled. Whole thing is spoiled."

Lecture SB 05.05.02 - London
Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"A spirit soul, being part and parcel of the Supreme Lord, he is by nature very powerful. We do not know how much spiritual power we have got, but that is being suppressed by the material covering. Just like this fire. This fire, if there are too many ashes, the heat of the fire is not properly felt. But you move the ashes and just fan it, and when it is blazing, then you get the proper heat and you can utilize it for so many purpose. Similarly, we as spirit soul, we have immense power. And God is the supreme spirit soul, so we cannot imagine how much power God has got."

Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"So now people do not wish to consider also this point, that "If I am eternal, if I am changing my place, my dress, my occupation every fifty years or ten years or twelve years according to the dress..." The cats and dogs, they live for ten years. The cows live for twenty years, and the man lives for, say, hundred years. Trees lives for thousands years. But everyone has to change. Vāsāṁsi jīrṇāni yathā vihāya (BG 2.22). As we have to change our old dress, similarly, this body has to be changed. And we are changing. Changing every moment. That is a fact."

Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"So everyone cannot be placed on the same level, not only materially, but also spiritually. If you say that "This higher status, lower status are calculated in the material world; in the spiritual world there is no such distinction," that is partially true. In the spiritual world there is no such distinction, but that spiritual distinction is not exactly like material distinction. That distinction is of consciousness, varieties of consciousness. That distinction."
