1974 Conversations and Morning Walks

If they are, these things come within our movement, then it will not be succesful. Tat-paratvena nirmalam (CC Madhya 19.170). One has to become purified. Even sometimes we have to take... But that is for Kṛṣṇa's. There must be now checking that all these rascals may not join and spoil the movement. You should not admit. So how it will be done unless you GBC members become very strong and with good brain? Now, first of all save this situation.


Morning Walk at Marine del Rey -- July 13, 1974, Los Angeles:

Prabhupāda: Now, the Revatīnandana and this man and Śyāmasundara is making a clique. I can understand. What they are planning, that also I know. But I don't wish to disclose it.

Brahmānanda: Sitting?

Prabhupāda: Politics, diplomacy, fraud, cheating. These things are the general qualification of the Western people. Do you admit or not?

Devotees: Yes.

Prabhupāda: If they are . . . these things come within our movement, then it will not be successful. Tat-paratvena nirmalam (CC Madhya 19.170). One has to become purified.

Bali-mardana: Yes. Just like in the San Francisco paper they admitted, "This is the most popular festival."
