THE RASCALS ARE READY
TO CHECK THIS MOVEMENT
So this movement is so important. Somehow or other if you can engage them in chanting and dancing, the whole world will be united. What the United Nations has failed, this movement can do--if it is not checked by the rascals. But the rascals are ready to check this movement. That is the difficulty. Otherwise, God, Krsna, is always ready to help us.
(Srimad-Bhagavatam 3.26.18 Bombay, December 27, 1974)
The whole situation has been spoiled
by these so-called rascal gurus
The whole situation has been spoiled by these so-called rascal gurus who gives his own opinion. This is our plain declaration: Let any rascal guru come. We can convince him that he is not guru, because he is speaking differently....So guru is one. Guru cannot be two. As soon as you find two opinions of guru, either both of them are rascals, or one is still at least rascal.
(Lecture: What is a Guru? London, August 22, 1973)
The rascal editors, they are doing havoc
Yasoda-nandana: Sometimes they appeal that "We can make better English," so they change like that, just like in the case of Isopanisad. There are over a hundred changes. So where is the need? Your words are sufficient. The potency is there. When they change, it is something else.
Svarupa Damodara: That's actually a very dangerous mentality.
Yasoda-nandana: What is it going to be in five years? It's going to be a different book.
Prabhupada: So you... What you are going... It is very serious situation. You write one letter that "Why you have made so many changes?" And whom to write? Who will care? All rascals are there. Write to Satsvarupa that "This is the position. They are doing anything and everything at their whim." The next printing should be again to the original way.
Tamala Krsna: They should have a board of Satsvarupa and Jayadvaita.
Tamala Krsna: Those two men are both in Los Angeles now.
Prabhupada: So write them immediately that "The rascal editors, they are doing havoc, and they are being maintained by Ramesvara and party."
(S.P.Conversation, "Rascal Editors,"June 22, 1977, Vrndavana)
Anything change means it is the domain of rascals, pandemonium
Change of government... Just like they say, a change of
theories by the rascals. Change means rascal.
(S.P. Morning Walk December 14, 1975, New Delhi)
Don't make addition, alteration. Then you become rascal. Immediately you become rascal.
And many times they give me very great credit that I have done wonderful. Yes, I have done wonderful. But what is the reason? Because I am not a rascal. I speak what Krsna has spoken. That's all. Very easy. Everyone can do that. Not only I. Any of you, you can do this. Simply speak what is..., what Krsna has said. That's all. Don't make addition, alteration. Then you become rascal. Immediately you become rascal.
(Srimad-Bhagavatam Lecture 1.5.29 Vrndavana, August 10, 1974)
