    If you come to Krishna, it is hard endeavour, it is very hard struggle, very hard life. To get up at 4'o clock, itself is austerity. What to speak of standing in this room, performing kirtan  and  then chant and hear Bhagavatam.

    Everybody is not attracted to Krishna. Every body is attracted to sense gratificatory activities. Everybody nearly is attracted to the main market, restaurants, video shops, brothels and what not?

    The basis of our behaviour is completely wrong because we don’t know that we are here, temporary. We know (think that) we are permanent.  This is our basis which is completely wrong.
