‘Sabure Mawaphale’ Principle




“It doesn’t matter if things are going a little slow, but make everything slow but sure. That is a good principle. To do things hastily and incorrectly is not good. There is a proverb in Bengali; ‘sabure mawaphale.’ This means that all valuable nuts like almonds, macadamias, walnuts, coconuts, etc. all take a long time to fructify. Anything valuable takes a little time to come into existence. Therefore there is no harm in waiting for the best thing. But everything is well that ends well. That should be the principle.”

(Srila Prabhupada to Shyamasundar, 7/15/69)
