Prabhupada showed how to keep one foot in the spiritual world and one foot here.

He was very well aware of the abuses of power going on in the world. He expected us to resolve our differences and get on with the real work of relieving the distress of the Earth-as Krsna did when she cried for Him.

He wanted his people to be scientists and politicians, philosophers and philanthropists.

He cried for the trees, he cried for the cows, he cried for the poor and unfortunate. He cried for us.

Those who presently rule the world engage in a wanton destruction of nature.

They propagate the illusion that consuming everything on Earth in the fire of raging greed
is what it means to be alive and successful. They are setting fire to their house to stay warm.
Pathology reigns.

The environmental destruction parallels the extreme inequality among people and races. The owners of capital are like ticks that drink the blood of the everything and everyone. Fat beyond belief........

Men slaughter porpoises, thank God for the cow on their plates, mutilate the yonis of women and sell young girls into slavery and loveless marriages.

Where ever we are today in this moment, whatever we have been through so far, our dharma now clearly is to cooperate in bringing about an alternative to ways of domination by illusion and ill will.

May everyone of us be empowered to bring about the change

To paraphrase a line from John Kennedy's Inaugural Address, " on earth, Krsna's work must truly be our own." Thank you this encouraging message to all Vaisnavas.
