We are very slow, especially in the spiritual matter. Practically there is no intention all over the world. They do not know that the real business is spiritual advancement of life. They are so much in darkness. Very unfortunate time – this Kali-yuga. Mandāh sumanda-matayo [SB 1.1.10].

Now if they want to utilize, they manufacture some new ways of spiritual advancement. This is another difficulty. So many rascals – yogis, swamis, Transcendental Meditation, this, that, avatāras… Always ready to mislead you, always. If one is little inclined that “Let me do something, spiritually advance,” this rascal will mislead. Very difficult position! Therefore, the best thing is to surrender to Madana-mohana, Krishna.

[From a lecture on the Chaitanya Charitamrita – Adi Līla 1.15, Mayapur – West Bengal, April 8, 1975]
