SB-5.5.1-2–“Don’t Live the Life of a Hog”–Bombay, March 25, 1977
671) Whether I know bhakti marga is not very difficult but easy! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!
—————-So bhakti-marga is not very difficult. Very easy. Man-mana bhava mad-bhakto mad-yaji mam namaskuru [Bg. 18.65]. Any child can do it. Any child, if he sees the form of Lord Krsna in the temple, he remembers, and he continues to think of Krsna. Man-mana bhava mad-bhakto. And if you think of Krsna always, automatically you become devotee. Man-mana bhava mad-bhakto. And then mad-yaji, little offering. Patram puspam phalam toyam yo me bhaktya prayacchati [Bg. 9.26]. Where is the difficulty? Little flower, little fruit, little water. Krsna is not poor person, (that) He wants something from you. But yo me bhaktya prayacchati. He wants to revive your original Krsna consciousness. Therefore He comes. Yada yada hi dharmasya glanir bhavati bharata [Bg. 4.7]. So in India we have got this opportunity. Why should we miss this opportunity? It is a suicidal policy. Don’t do it. Take to it very seriously. ——————-
