This human society is being misdirected by such so-called… by such rascals in the dress of uh, of saintly people, just to destroy any consciousness they have of service to Krishna, and the devotees, what they institute immediately is consciousness of service to Krishna. Everyone should be conscious that we should serve Krishna, you see. Because this consciousness of serving Krishna is so powerful, even if contemporary religions, their consciousness of serving God is not so strong as the consciousness of God supplying the needs to us. “Oh Father who art in Heaven, Hallowed be Thy Name… Give us this day, our daily bread.” Give us what we want. Or like in Durga-puja dhanam-deya, pratistha-deya, sriyam-deya, pujam-deya, give me money, give me wealth, give me power, give me beauty, give me give… the consciousness of “give me, serve me, God. Serve me, God. Serve me with this. Serve me with that. Serve me with this. Serve me with that.” You see, we want God to serve us. That’s ordinary religion, but here, this Bhagavatam is a completely different creation.
