But why do you blame us for not surrendering when we see that even Krsna's devotees can't surrender to Him? They come to us and ask us for money for these books. Why don't they give them away?

Conversations and Morning Walks

1976 Conversations and Morning Walks

But Kṛṣṇa's devotee.... When he surrenders, he is devotee. When he does not, he is not devotee; he is trying to become devotee.
Morning Walk -- March 14, 1976, Mayapur:

Pañca-draviḍa: "But why do you blame us for not surrendering when we see that even Kṛṣṇa's devotees can't surrender to Him? They come to us and ask us for money for these books. Why don't they give them away?"

Prabhupāda: But Kṛṣṇa's devotee.... When he surrenders, he is devotee. When he does not, he is not devotee; he is trying to become devotee.

Pañca-draviḍa: "But why do they ask us for money for these books? Why don't they give them away, if they're so surrendered to Kṛṣṇa?"

Prabhupāda: Why shall I give you? Why shall I give you?

Gurukṛpā: "Kṛṣṇa says He is the proprietor of everything. Why He has to ask me?"

Pañca-draviḍa: "Yes, why is He asking us for money?"

Prabhupāda: And He is proprietor of your money. Give Him. (laughter) I think our Girirāja played this trick.
