Smart Quote of the Day, March 4, 2016

Complexity: 
Easy

"Whatever is there, whatever we have, should be used for Krishna. We can use everything: typewriters, automobiles, airplanes, missiles—anything. If we simply speak to people about Krishna consciousness, we are also rendering service."

Today's Smart Quote is from the Introduction to Teachings of Lord Caitanya:

The real question is how can we remain unpolluted by material contamination while in the material world. It was Rupa Gosvami who explained that we can remain uncontaminated while in the world if we simply make it our ambition to serve Krishna. One may then justifiably ask, "How can I serve?" Obviously this is not simply a matter of meditation, which is just an activity of the mind, but of practical work. Love of Krishna's service can only be attained by working for Krishna. In such work, we should leave no resource unused. Whatever is there, whatever we have, should be used for Krishna. We can use everything: typewriters, automobiles, airplanes, missiles—anything. If we simply speak to people about Krishna consciousness, we are also rendering service. If our minds, senses, speech, money and energies are thus engaged in the service of Krishna, we cannot be considered to be existing in material nature. By virtue of spiritual consciousness, or Krishna consciousness, we transcend the platform of material nature. It is a fact that Krishna, His expansions and His devotees—that is, those who work for Him—are not in material nature, although people with a poor fund of knowledge think that they are.
