When a touchstone touches iron, it turns the iron to gold. Parvata Muni called Narada Muni a touchstone because by his touch the hunter, who was the lowest among men, became an elevated and perfect Vaisnava. Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura said that the position of a Vaisnava can be tested by seeing how good a touchstone he is, that is, by seeing how many Vaisnavas he has made during his life. A Vaisnava should be a touchstone so that he can convert others to Vaisnavism by his preaching, even though people may be fallen like the hunter.
Quote by A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada
-still many people, especially youth in west suffering out of depression; they do not
know the aim of life; and sadly youth in India also try to copy them and become
Most of them commit suicides; others become drug users or smokers, or even murderers...
Because young girls are polluted right from childhood they give birth to unwanted population - demons; parents do not know the proper way of educating children as a result they grow up not knowing their sva dharma;
...and most important tool of demoniac preaching is MASS MEDIA - it might be Internet, You on Tube, TV, magazines, books...
Who knows some of us also were among such like people just few years back, but tasting the sweetness of Holy Names and association of Devotees our lives changed. We really found what we looked for for many many life times, didn't we?!
So it was Lord Chaitanya's gift.
And also He chose us among billions of people and gave Himself as His Holy Names and Bhagavad Gita. But He had some faith that by taking THIS we will use our intelligence and share THIS with others also. And make them happy as we ourselves are, isn't it?!
With this tool of ISKCON Desire Tree and other web sites related to it also with our You on Tube channel we want to reach every home and heart and try to share what we have with them.
Here in the office we are 21 who are living simple life but render some tiny service. But opportunity to serve is unlimited.
