Quotes from Srila Prabhupada's teachings
|Paintings should be like the Deities, formal and worshipful. This type of painting is sentimental and not authorized. Paintings should be as our artists in New York are doing. Do not introduce any new styles. (Letter, 8 December 1973, Los Angeles)|
|Your comment is well taken that you have little or no knowledge of the politics. So you remain uninvolved and just continue to simply follow the authorities and concentrate on improving the Deity worship. (Letter, 9 May 1974, Bombay)|
