“The position is that whole world is full of sudras. The sudras business is to somehow or other catch up some nice service under some good
master and get a nice wife and home. That is their success in life. This is the position of India especially. The whole of India is under technological instruction which means to become sudras. Just like carpenter can manufacture so much nice furniture by his technological education, but in our Vedic society, the carpenter is considered a sudra. Similarly tannery expert was called a cobbler. So these things are now lost. Everyone is prepared to become a cobbler, a carpenter, a chemist, a physicist, an electrician and so many other things, but they do not know that after such education one has to depend on other’s mercy. So-called highly qualified technologists cannot earn their livelihood without getting a suitable job. It is just like a dog, however stout and strong it may be, it cannot be happy without having gotten a wealthy master. Without being protected by a wealth master it is nothing but a street dog and he is never happy.

So all students at the present moment are getting educated how to become first-class sudras. How they can be interested in Krsna consciousness, which is the business of high class brahmanas and Vaisnavas? Still it is our duty to preach, and our sincere endeavor for preaching work will be appreciated by the Lord. That much we want. Our mission is to see that Lord Caitanya is satisfied, never mind if we could not turn many of them to this cult. Here is the quotation from Caitanya Mahaprabhu’s instruction, ‘Yare dekha, tare kaha ‘Krsna’-upadesya/amara ajnaya guru hana tara’ ei desa. Caitanya-caritamrta, Madhya-lila, 7:128. So our mission is, by the order of Caitanya Mahaprabhu, we shall try to teach people about the Bhagavad-gita and Srimad-Bhagavatam, etc., without being depressed whether people are accepting them or no. This is our credit. We shall be judged by the quality of our work and not by the material return.”
