"A bona fide devotee of Lord Krishna is always pained to see the fallen condition of the whole world. Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura used to say, 'There is no scarcity of anything within this world. The only scarcity is of Krishna Consciousness.' That is the vision of all pure devotees. Because of this lack of Krishna consciousness in human society, people are suffering terribly, being merged in an ocean of nescience and sense gratification. A devotee onlooker is very much aggrieved to see such a situation in the world."
(SriCaitanya-caritamrta, Adi-lila 13.67, Purport)
