(Kadamba Kanana Swami, 02 May 2013, Radhadesh, Belgium, Venu-gita Talk)
This devotee in Bombay complained to Prabhupada that he didn’t like Indians.
And Prabhupada said, “Oh, you don’t like Indians?”
He said, “No. I don’t like Indians because they’re so tricky. But not you Prabhupada.”
Prabhupada said, “Oh, I am very tricky. I tricked you all to become devotees.”
So be calculative but somehow or other, connect it with Krsna. Be manipulative but manipulate people towards Krsna. Then it’s okay. We’re not gonna be able to change that quality in us.
