Shrila Prabhupada Teachings-Quotes 💐💐💐


Interviewer: But in what way, sir, may I ask, did you think and do you think right now that the teaching of the love of God which you are preaching is different and perhaps better than the teachings of love of God which already were being conducted in this country and have been conducted in the rest of the world for centuries? Śrīla Prabhupāda said: This teaching is the most authorized. That is a fact. We are following in the footsteps of Lord Caitanya. He is accepted by us, according to the authority of Vedic religion, to be personally Krsna Himself. Interviewer: Which Lord is that? Śrīla Prabhupāda said: Lord Caitanya. Interviewer: He is the one who came 500 years ago? Śrīla Prabhupāda said: Yes. Interviewer: To India? Śrīla Prabhupāda said: Yes. He is Krsna Himself, and He teaches how to love Krsna. Therefore His process is most authorized. For example, you are the expert in this establishment. If someone is doing something under your guidance and you personally teach him, “Do it like this,” that is very authorized. So when Lord Caitanya taught God consciousness, God Himself was teaching. Similarly, in Bhāgavad Gita, Krsna is accepted as God, and He speaks all about Himself. In His final instructions He said, “Just surrender unto Me. I will take charge of you.” But people misunderstood. So Krsna again came, as Lord Caitanya, to teach people how to surrender. We are following in the footsteps of Lord Caitanya, and the method is so sublime that even foreigners, who never knew Krsna, surrender. The method is so potent. So that was my purpose. We don’t say that this religion is better than that religion, or my process is better. We want to see by the result. In Sanskrit there is a saying, phalena pariciyate: a thing is judged by the result. Interviewer: A thing is –? Śrīla Prabhupāda said: Judged by the result. Interviewer: Oh, yes. Śrīla Prabhupāda said: I can say my method is very nice, or you can say your method is very nice, but we have to judge by the result. The Śrīmad Bhāgavatam says that that process of religion is very good by following which one becomes a lover of God. Interviewer: Yes, but of course you know your religion is not the only one which teaches this particular precept. Śrīla Prabhupāda said: I have already explained that it is not the only one. There may be many, but this is actually effective. Back to Godhead Magazine-Transcendental Broadcast-A Television Interview With His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupāda —
