I think it will be really nice if my disciples will have real, genuine relationships amongst one another; positive vaishnava relationships. It would be something that would have power; power for ourselves. It will be something that will nourish us and it will be something that will attract people from everywhere because the whole world is looking for real, genuine relationships.
(Kadamba Kanana Swami, 25 April 2015, Radhadesh, Belgium, Lecture at Cultural Festival)
I have always looked for friendship in Iskcon, for real friendship. Sometimes in our movement, people ask, “Is that your colleague?” But if we become like colleagues, I think that we are not acting on the platform that we should be. We should have very deep relationships – deep, warm, personal, appreciative vaishnava relationships, where we are generally happy to see one another. If that could exist among my disciples, that will fulfill my dream.
