"Here Kṛṣṇa says that man-manā bhava mad-bhakto mad-yājī māṁ namaskuru (BG 18.65). So we preach that thing. We preach that 'You be Kṛṣṇa conscious.' Man-manāḥ: 'Always think of Me,' Kṛṣṇa says. And we are teaching these disciples, 'Always think of Kṛṣṇa.' There is no difference. We don't create. And therefore it is successful. Others, they created their own concoction; it was never successful. Before me, so many svāmīs came to the Western countries. They were not successful. Not a single person was Kṛṣṇa conscious, in the history. In the history of the last two hundred years so many svāmīs are coming in the Western countries. They also speak on Bhagavad-gītā, but not a single person was Kṛṣṇa conscious. And since we have presented Bhagavad-gītā As It Is, hundreds and thousands. This is the proof that they presented something concoction. It was, what is called, impotent. A impotent man having sex, he cannot beget children. He can enjoy that sex, but he cannot beget child. Similarly, these so-called svāmīs, they are impotent. They could not produce any child of Kṛṣṇa consciousness. That is the proof."
