Srila Prabhupada on “Harsh Preaching”




Prabhupada: Therefore Krsna has said, mam ekam. “Don’t go to these foolish rascals.” Mam ekam. Otherwise you’ll be misled. Because they are misleaders, rascals.

Dr. Patel: You are so very hard.

Prabhupada: I must be hard!

Dr. Patel: Hard, harsh, and hard and harsh…

Prabhupada: The whole world is spoiled for these Mayavadis. Therefore I am very much hard.

Dr. Patel: What… I don’t say hard. Hard and harsh…

Prabhupada: No, we must be harder and harder.

Dr. Patel: Hard and harsh! Doesn’t matter…

Prabhupada: I don’t make any compromise with these rascals. No words. No, no. I never made that. Even if I don’t get any disciples, I’ll be satisfied.
But I can’t make any compromise like these rascals. I cannot make. Ekas candras tamo hanti na ca tara sahasrasah. If I create one moon, that is sufficient. I don’t want many stars. That was my Guru Maharaja’s principle, and that is my principle. What is the use of having number of fools and rascals? If one man understands rightly, he can deliver the whole world.
