In one of the first ‘Back To Godhead’ – on the front page there was a picture of a butcher, who was attacking a cow with an axe.
Prabhupada said:

“What is this?”

“Well…it’s an article against meat eating”.

So Prabhupada said:

“We are not against anything. We are for Krishna. So, it is not our business to be against this and against that! No, it is our business to be for Krishna, and for Krishna means no meat, because Krishna doesn’t accept meat.”

But we are not singling out so many things – we are against this, and against that. No Prabhupada said: “We are for Krishna”. Our standard is simply for the desire of Krishna. Whatever Krishna desires, and that is in the Bhagavad Gita, where he makes his desires clear!
