slide58

Because we are taking direction from imperfect leaders, cheater leaders, therefore we are meeting with so many problems.Bhagavad-gita 4.9 -- Bombay, March 29, 1974

slide59

According to Vedic civilization, the brahmanas guide the ksatriyas how to rule. So our position is to reform the politicians. We are not going to compete with them, we have no business, neither we have time. But because people are suffering - we want everyone to be happy - therefore we want to reform these rascals. That is our goal.Morning Walk -- December 8, 1973, Los Angeles

slide61

fresh challenge
Fresh Challenge
  • Our leaders shall be careful not to kill the spirit of enthusiastic service, which is individual and spontaneous and voluntary. They should try always to generate some atmosphere of fresh challenge to the devotees, so that they will agree enthusiastically to rise and meet it. That is the art of management: to draw out spontaneous loving spirit of sacrificing some energy for Krishna ... All of us should become expert managers and preachers.

- Srila Prabhupada

slide66

Simply ruling the land cannot solve man's problems unless the leader has spiritual capabilities. He must be like Maharaja Yudhisthira, Pariksit Maharaja or Ramacandra. Then all the inhabitants of the land will be extremely happy. SB 6.14.10 P

It is our great responsibility to become very serious in the matter of executing Krishna consciousness, and if we are sincere and go on expanding this movement all over the world, gradually we shall induce the leaders to accept our philosophy more and more.Letter to: Amarendra -- Los Angeles 12 June, 1972

slide68
Good leadership means you must learn how to lead people. Room Conversation with Mr. Tombe (M.L.A.) -- December 25, 1976, Bombay

Why we select one leader? The leader should be such a leader that he shall make happy and prosperous persons who follow him. That is the question of leadership.Bhagavad-gita 4.11 -- New York, July 27, 1966

slide70

They are not leader; they are jackals. So jackals cannot anymore rule over. That should be our propaganda. Not only scientific, all political things, social things, everything. Morning Walk -- May 3, 1973, Los Angeles

slide71

They should be all kicked out. They should be replaced by Krsna consciousness. Then people will be happy. This should be our program. Morning Walk -- May 3, 1973, Los Angeles

slide73

Because God has favored them, so many things. And this movement has been started from America. I started this movement from New York. So it should be taken very seriously by the government. Morning Walk -- December 11, 1973, Los Angeles

slide74

“You must find out a leader who is free from these sinful activities. Then you will be happy. And you also give up. Otherwise, how you will be able to select such a leader?" This should be our real propaganda.Morning Walk -- January 12, 1974, Los Angeles

slide75

Everyone should be expert. The leaders must be expert and the worker must be expert so that they may follow the instruction of the leader. If the leader says something and the workers, "Hm, I shall consider it, later on," then how the leader will execute his leadership? Both of them should be cooperating and know that "We are all working for Krsna." Morning Walk -- March 14, 1974, Vrndavana

slide76

Sarve sukhino bhavantu. This is Vedic civilization. "Let everyone be happy." That is Vedic civilization. And the demonic civilization, they're: "Let everyone suffer; I become happy.“Morning Walk -- March 15, 1974, Vrndavana

slide77

If he's planning something, that "I shall be leader," "I shall be doing something," that is not Vaisnavism.Morning Walk -- March 15, 1974, Vrndavana

slide81

Everyone should be happy, without any anxiety. That is good government.Room Conversation with Richard Webster, chairman, Societa Filosofica Italiana -- May 24, 1974, Rome

slide82

This Krsna consciousness movement should be taken very seriously. It is the finishing touch of American advancement of material comforts. Then people will be very happy, and America is already leader of the world. They will be first-class leader. The world will be benefited, and you will be benefited. And my endeavor will be also successful.Press Conference at Airport -- July 28, 1975, Dallas

slide83

It is very much favorable to our advancement in spiritual life if we are engaged in some service for Krishna which is also pleasing to us to perform. Letter to Saucarya, Vrindaban 23 October 1972

slide84

So if you have got some special talent or experience you may discuss with Jagadisa how to engage yourself in that way. That is his duty as leader, to give you good engagement.Letter to: Saucarya -- Vrindaban 23 October, 1972

slide85

Real attitude of devotional service is, whether I am here or there, whether I am doing this or that, it doesn't matter, just give me little prasada, little service, or if you make me big leader, that's all right -- that is devotee, satisfied to serve Krishna in any circumstances of life.Letter to: Satsvarupa -- Vrindaban 5 November, 1972

slide86

That enthusiastic mood is maintained when everyone is always without fail chanting 16 rounds daily, rising early for mangala aratrika, reading books, preaching - in this way, by observing strictly the regulative principles of devotional life, that enthusiasm or great eagerness to have Krsna will come out.Letter to: Trai -- Bombay December 27, 1972
