We Are Teaching How to Love Krishna
(Click to enlarge photo of Srila Prabhupada praying to Radha-Rasabihari in Their temporary shed)

"Kṛṣṇa is so kind friend, even practically. We had a very big struggle in Bombay for our land. So they wanted to break our temple to drive away. It was a great commotion. All Bombay people know it. But I prayed simply Kṛṣṇa, 'My dear Kṛṣṇa, anyway, You have come here. You have sat down here. It will be great insult if You are removed from this place.' So Kṛṣṇa heard it, and we won the battle. Now the land is ours. The land is ours. It was a great battle.

So Kṛṣṇa is so kind. So the devotees see like that, that a Pūtanā rākṣasī wanted to kill Kṛṣṇa, but she got the promotion just like His Mother Yaśodā. Kṛṣṇa is so kind. Because Kṛṣṇa took it that 'Although this rākṣasī came to kill Me with poison in her breast, but I have sucked her breast. She has become My mother.' So Kṛṣṇa takes only the bright side of your devotional service. He never takes the dark side because anyone in this material world, he has got only dark life. So try to serve Kṛṣṇa. Svalpam apy asya dharmasya trāyate mahato bhayāt: 'Even little service rendered to Kṛṣṇa can save you from the greatest dangerous life.' These are the instructions.

So our this Kṛṣṇa consciousness movement is simply to teach people how to love Kṛṣṇa, how to become beloved of Kṛṣṇa. Sa vai puṁsām, the greatest type of religious life. Sa vai puṁsāṁ paro dharmaḥ. Because we are teaching how to love Kṛṣṇa. And if you can, if we, you or we, if we some way or other, if we love Kṛṣṇa, then our life is successful."

(Srila Prabhupada Lecture, Calcutta, February 26, 1974)
