"In Vrindavan you see now, every temple, as soon as there is four o'clock, the ding-dong bell immediately begins. People can rise early in the morning, take bath in the Yamuna and visit the Deities in the temple. There is no necessity of passing M.A. examination, taking B.A. degree for devotional service. Simply you have to follow the regulative principles. Then automatically you'll become spiritualized. Very simple method. Vrindavan is specially meant for that purpose. Why people come to Vrindavan? To take the advantage. Here the atmosphere is surcharged with devotional service. We should take advantage of it."
(Srila Prabhupada Lecture, Vrindavan, November 13, 1972)
