Who A Preacher Is!
Room Conversation—September 18, 1973, Bombay
1171) Whether I know what the meaning of preacher is! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!
— Acyutananda: Which is more important, to go back to Godhead or spread Krishna consciousness?
Prabhupada: Well, one who is preaching Krishna consciousness, he’s already back to Godhead … …ha yasya harer dasye karmana manasa gira. “Preacher” means he has engaged his body, his mind and his speech only to glorify the Lord. That is the meaning of preacher. So anybody who’s engaged in preaching is jivan-muktah sa ucyate. He’s liberated even in this life. Why should he seek liberation when he’s already liberated. He’s already back to Godhead. He’s already with Krishna. —————
