Preaching Tactics

His Divine Grace Om Vishnupad

When Mahaprabhu preached, He converted the biggest men—King Prataparudra, Sarvabhauma Bhattacharya, Prakasananda Saraswati, Ramachandra Khan, King Mansingh, and many other big-big Muslim leaders.

Two kinds of preaching are necessary—on the one hand preaching to the big fallen souls (like Jagai and Madhai—who will save them?), and on the other hand, to the big famous men who control others. For example, the city people control the village people—the village people listen to what the city people say, they think that whatever city people say it is correct. Is it not? This is how Mahaprabhu preached. Think about it.

Do you know the story of Alexander the Great? He conquered so many lands and kingdoms, but what happened to him in the end? When he was going to die, he called the greatest, biggest doctors from all over the world, and ordered to them, "When I die, you must keep me in the coffin naked and show that my hands are empty." What for? He wanted to show everyone in the world: "You are big-big doctors, but you have no power to keep my soul in this body, you have no power to save me." He conquered all kingdoms, but this is what he did at the end of his life. A very good story.

Buddhist, Christians say that cows have no jiva soul, trees have no jiva souls. Even the scientists do not say this is so, but the Buddhists and Christians say this... This is the condition on this planet...

New Year Message
'It is necessary to preach, follow, and practise Krishna consciousness more. Next year, with a good heart and good health, continue your service to Gurudev.'

 

Ki jani ki bale
'There is no one on earth who has the power to deliver me. O merciful Lord! It is Your declaration that You deliver the lowest, most sinful persons.'
কি জানি কি বলে

We have to offer everything—senses, eyes, ears, nose, tongue—to our Lord;
we have to use everything for the service to the Lord.
