(Kadamba Kanana Swami, September 2013, Cape Town, South Africa, Srimad Bhagavatam 8.20.12)
When Srila Prabhupada was in Mayapur and was showing the devotees around, he came upon an area which was very dirty. Prabhupada told he devotees, “Why is this going on? This is the mode of ignorance. If you do not do anything about the mode of ignorance to correct it, then you are in the mode of ignorance!”
So like that, when people did not feel responsible, Prabhupada made them responsible. That is our duty! So gradually, by transcendental knowledge, we begin to see things in a proper perspective then we can handle our mind and handle all of our senses.
