"Our mission is very nice. We want to see everyone happy. We don't want anything from anyone. We don't say that 'You give me fee, then I give you some mantra.' No, we don't say like that. Our instruction is free. I want to see that they are doing it and they are happy, that's all. Rādhā-kṛṣṇa bolo, saṅge calo, ei-mātra bhikhā cāi (from Gītāvalī), this Bhaktivinoda's, 'You simply chant Hare Kṛṣṇa and come with me. This much I want. I don't want anything else.'"
