Srila Bhakti Rakshak Sridhara Goswami Maharaja: “Chastity means our adherence to the truth. The truth that we have come to realize, that truth is in Krsna consciousness.

I will dissipate with indomitable courage and conviction the currents of thought of all the rest of the world, relying on the strength derived from the lotus feet of Sri Gurudeva. I confess to this arrogance...
