(Kadamba Kanana Swami, 13 April 2013, Amsterdam, Netherlands, Srimad Bhagavatam 5.1.33)
In my family, they appreciate me at the time of a disaster. When something goes totally wrong, then I’m appreciated because I always say these nice things on such occasions. Some deep wise words and things like that, that everyone can appreciate.
When they’re having a party, you know, they don’t need me, but for funerals, I am great (laughing). That’s alright. That’s good. That’s not bad. That’s very good. It means that they have a need. It’s not about a relationship. I don’t care about that. But it’s about the fact that they find solace and shelter in transcendental knowledge.
But when they are too busy absorbed in sense gratification and enjoying the material energy then, “Oh! No time for this. Not interested in these things.” But when the time comes, that life takes a turn, then suddenly, then suddenly they are ready. And like this, these books or this knowledge, it will reach out so we must just put it everywhere. All over. All over the world. All over town. Make it visible to people, you know. Make ourselves visible. Make the knowledge visible all the time.
