On Speaking Strongly in Srila Prabhupada's Service

He was so learned -- so we should be like that as far as possible. No compromise -- Ramakrishna, avataras, yogis, everyone was enemy to Guru Maharaja -- he never compromised. Some Godbrothers complained that this preaching was chopping…

They don't want to become servant of God. That is their challenge. Therefore, anyone who is… Continue
