“The Complete Science of Bhakti-Yoga #4”
The Nectar of Devotion — Vrndavana, October 27, 1972

Our main business is…, (uproar in background, sounds like monkey attacked audience) (pause) Hut! Hut! (laughter, applause) So our main business is to serve the acaryas.

Rupa-raghunatha-pade haibe akuti. That is required.

So this society is attempting to create a society of devotees all over the world, without any discrimination of caste, creed, color. One must be a devotee of Krsna. Yei krsna-tattva-vetta sei guru haya [Cc. Madhya 8.128]. One must know the science of Krsna. Then he can preach to others. Sei guru haya. That is our purpose. ———————
