Letter to Rayarama-19-Nvm-1968- By Srila Prabhupada-Even Butchers are Welcome—
857) Whether I know I should not be a butcher as well a thief! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!
————– I hope you will understand me rightly. Everyone who is not a Krishna conscious person is a butcher. Even the so- called pious man who is not in Krishna consciousness is also a butcher because he is killing his own self. In our view, everyone is a butcher and everyone is also a thief, because he is enjoying Krishna’s property. So how can we discriminate who is honest and dishonest, butcher and not butcher? Our only test is how one is taking to Krishna consciousness. Even if a so-called butcher comes, we welcome him to chant Hare Krishna. ———–—-
