(Kadamba Kanana Swami, Mayapur, November 2011) Lecture – Caitanya-caritamrta part 6
If one wants to distribute Krishna Consciousness then it is not propaganda. The communists were into propaganda. I lived here in Bengal and saw communist books in the bookstores, which were all over Bengal for propaganda. You can see that there was communism in Bengal, which is all a propaganda machine. But Krishna Consciousness can never be a propaganda machine. We must be the embodiedment of the books!
If we are the only movement that distribute books – yes then those books will make them into devotees…..but we will drop on the way beside ourselves, then we ourselves will become the casualty. That is not the idea, since we have to do it ourselves, because we have to live it! And that of course, is very important. It is not that we have to live it by being strict followers. Although, we should be strict followers, but that is not what we are talking about. We have to taste it!
Srila Prabhupada once said that:
“Preaching is very easy. Just show people how happy you are!”
It’s easy isn’t it? It’s super easy!
