(Srila Prabhupada with his first three Bhagavatams in Chippiwada, Delhi, 1965)
"Of course, I'm not proud, but I am alone. I started this movement alone, without any help. But because I am giving them the perfect information, whole world is taking it. Otherwise, from practical point of view, one man without any help, within ten years he cannot do like this. That's a fact. But I have no difficulty because I am following the Supreme Leader, Kṛṣṇa. People may say that I've done wonderful, but there is nothing magic. Because I am following Kṛṣṇa, the Supreme Leader, so far it has become successful. So everyone can do that. Where is the difficulty? Evaṁ paramparā-prāptam. If we follow the paramparā system it is not difficult."
(Srila Prabhupada Conversation, Bombay, December 25, 1976)
