"Before me, so many swamis came in this country; they could not present the real thing. They wanted some money and went away. That's all. Our this Krishna consciousness movement is not that. We want to give something to the Western countries. That is our purpose. Not we have come to beg; we have to give him something. That is my mission. They come here to beg, 'Give me rice,' 'Give me dal,' 'Give me wheat,' 'Give me money,' but I have come here to give something of Indian culture. That is the difference. So you European, American students, you take full advantage of this Vedic culture. I am therefore so much laboring hard that we... before my leaving this body, I may give you some books who you can enjoy after my death. So utilize it. Utilize it."
