- Actually, the Vedic system is called sanatana-dharma, not Hindu dharma. This is a wrong conception. This sanatana-dharma is meant for all living entities, not just the so-called Hindus. The very term "Hindu" is a misconception
- All this misconception is due to the illusory energy of the Supreme Lord
- Almost everyone is thinking that he is this body; he has no information of the spirit soul. Guided by this misconception, one always thinks, "This is my body, and anything in relationship with this body is mine"

- Avidya, a misconception about one's spiritual identity, provides the foundation for ahankara, or false ego within the heart
- Because a sannyasi in the Sankara-sampradaya thinks that he has become the Supreme, Lord Caitanya, wanting to avoid such a misconception, kept the name Sri Krsna Caitanya, placing Himself as an eternal servitor
- Because the Mayavadis think that they have become one with Narayana, they address one another as Narayana. They say, "You are Narayana, I am Narayana, everyone is Narayana." From this misconception, the idea of daridra-narayana (poor Narayana) arises
- Because they (the modern impersonalists) do not know anything beyond their misconception of the brahmajyoti, they cannot understand that Krsna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, is spiritual and therefore beyond the conception of material illusion
- Both misconceptions can be removed by one stroke of bhakti-yoga, just as in the sunlight both the sun and the world and everything within the sunlight are properly seen
- But as soon as one becomes Krsna conscious, he is immediately relieved from such misconceptions. This verse is quoted from Srimad-Bhagavatam (SB 2.5.13)

- He (Subuddhi Raya) could not, however, avoid the social misconception that one becomes a Muslim when water is sprinkled on one’s face from a Muslim’s pitcher. Actually he was planning to give up his material life and leave his family
- He (the Absolute Truth) is completely free from false ego, for He is the full spiritual identity. It is absolutely impossible for Him to be subjected to ignorance and fall under the spell of a misconception
- In conditioned life the soul is under the impression that he can become the lord of the universe, and the last point of this misconception is to think oneself the Supreme
- In his bewildered state, the living entity, accepting the body and mind to be the self, considers some people to be his kinsmen and others to be outsiders. Because of this misconception, he suffers

- In the higher stage of speculative knowledge, the same misconception of "mine" is transformed into "I am," or "It is all I am," etc

- The material energy, which is a perverted form of the spiritual energy, presents everything pervertedly, thus causing misconceptions and duality
- The materialists have many branches of philanthropic and altruistic activities from a political, (inter)national angle of vision, but none of the field work can go beyond the jurisdiction of the misconception of identifying the body with the spirit soul
- The Mayavadi Vedantists cheat. Suppose I present some proposition. If it is a misconception, generally there are others also who can say something to clarify this misconception
- The Mayavadis' theory that the Supersoul and the individual soul are equal is only a misconception. The conclusion is, therefore, that Krsna is worshipable and that all other living entities are simply His servants
- The misconception of "I am the Lord," or "I am the Supreme," is more dangerous than the misconception of "mine"
- The moon is far away from the clouds and is fixed in its own orbit, but illusion presents a scene in which the moon appears to be moving. A living being should not float with the misconception of the temporary body

- There are many classes of men comprehending the same misconception of "I" and "mine', in different colors
- There is a misconception about the Hindu religion among people who profess other religions, such as Christians and Muslims, who say that in the Hindu religion there are many Gods. Actually that is not a fact
- These misconceptions (that there is no God or that if God exists He is formless) are very dangerous, and the only way to counteract them is to spread the Hare Krsna movement
- They (professional reciters) have in this way (by creating the impression that SB deals only with Krsna's rasa-lila) presented Krsna to the Western world as a great woman-hunter, & therefore we sometimes have to deal with such misconceptions in preaching
- They have so many misconceptions which are simply due to ignorance. They are simply making false propaganda to keep their prestige
- This cheating process is going on under the misconception that "I am this body." The basic principle is cheating. Wrong
- This is my mission, to educate people to understand himself. They are under this misconception that, "Every one of us, we are this body." That is misconception. You must know who is within the body. That is real education
- This misconception (of bodily conception of life) is the strongest impediment, and it must be removed. That is the instruction of Bhagavad-gita and of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu
- This misconception (of the living entity that he is not energy but the energetic) of his own existence leads him to the attitude of lording it over material nature
- This misconception in materialistic life (considering the body to be the self) continues unless and until one comes to understand his relationship with Krsna. The happiness sought by the conditioned soul is certainly only illusion
- This misconception of the formlessness of the Supreme Personality of Godhead is due to the yogamaya curtain of the Lord and can be removed only by the Supreme Will, as soon as the conditioned soul surrenders unto Him
- Those who are before God and who surrender unto Him, cannot be influenced by the deluding energy; they are free from the misconception of "It is I, it is mine," and therefore they do not accept a false God or pose themselves as equal to the Supreme Lord
- Those who are not freed from all misconceptions perform sacrifices to please the minor demigods, but the devotees of the Lord know very well that Lord Sri Krsna is the supreme enjoyer of all performances of sacrifice they perform the sankirtana-yajna
- Those who are pure Vaisnavas should avoid both these things (Bhakti-siddhanta-viruddha and rasabhasa) opposed to devotional service. These misconceptions practically parallel the Mayavada philosophy
- Those who are under the misconception that the living entity and the Supreme Lord are equal in all respects, both qualitatively and quantitatively, are mistaken, and they are still bound to remain in the material world
- Those who have dedicated their lives to the transcendental topics of the Personality of Godhead, of whom the Vedic hymns sing, and who are constantly engaged in remembering the lotus feet of the Lord, do not run the risk of having misconceptions
- To cleanse the mind and heart from all misconceptions, one should take to this chanting of the Hare Krsna maha-mantra
- To conceive of oneself as being one with the Supreme is the greatest misconception of self-realization, and this misconception prevents one from rising to the highest stage of love of God
- We have to save the world from the misconception of voidism and impersonalism. "The absolute is sentient Thou hast proved all impersonal calamity Thou hast moved." These lines were presented by me to my spiritual master and He was highly pleased with me
- When a living entity is freed from misconceptions, he is called liberated. When one is actually liberated he no longer identifies with the material world
- Whole misconsciousness has come into existence due to this body
- Why assume, "Here is the son of a truthful man; therefore he is truthful, a brahmana "? That is a misconception. You have to find the truthful men all over the world and train them as brahmanas. That we are doing
