First Work, Then Samadhi

Now we are five hundred men, and we each have fifty years. So think of what we can do. But you must become dedicated as I am. Sometimes a Vaisnava is criticized as doing nothing. But Arjuna and Hanuman were Vaisnava warriors. When the high-court judges wear tilaka, then we are successful--my Guru Maharaja said that. My Godbrothers were for getting temples, some rice, eating a little, chanting. But for us--first we work, then samadhi.
