We should try where we are, try to develop this consciousness. These are the teachings of our holy guru, ācārya, and Vaiṣṇavas. This was the mission of Svāmījī also, who took from India, from our disciplic orders and he came here and all the places. We should try to develop all these things. Don’t see that: “I’m alone, I will die. How to arrange?” We cannot do anything. Nothing. He has given this intelligence, very beautiful body, he has given us strength, power, good eyes. We are not lame, we are not blind, we are not foolish. Kṛṣṇa has given mercifully. Anyone, father and mother, has not given these things. I see that so many persons have no children. Why don’t they yield any child? They cannot do. Kṛṣṇa arranges everything. We know that all women have no milk in their breasts, only the mothers who have given birth to any child, they have only. And see how strange it is that the cows are taking grass and milk is coming. So, Kṛṣṇa has arranged everything. We should realize and have very strong faith in Kṛṣṇa. Without this we cannot progress. We’ll have to do the prayers like this.
