... In the belly or the abdomen of the mother, the child remains in a very miserable condition. Because the consciousness is not developed. But as soon as the consciousness is developed at the age of seven months, the child wants to come out. Therefore it moves. If it is male child, then it moves toward the right side. If it is female child, then it moves to the left side. So these are description in the Srimad-Bhagavatam. So by the movement of the child you can understand whether it is male or female.

Lecture - Vrindavana, December 2, 1975

Krishna's prasadam distribution, so many ways. So our devotees all over the world - there are a 102 centers - they are simply engaged in Krishna consciousness. This is our propaganda, always, no other business. We don't do any business but we are spending at least twenty-five lakhs of rupees, twenty-five lakhs of rupees every month, but Krishna is supplying. Tesam nityabhiyuktanam yoga-ksemam vahamy aham. If you remain Krishna consciousness, fully dependent on Krishna, then there will be no scarcity. I started this Krishna business with forty rupees. Now we have got forty crores of rupees. Is there any businessman in the whole world within ten years with forty rupees he can increase forty crores? There is no example. And ten thousand men, they are eating prasadam daily. So this is Krishna consciousness. Yoga-ksemam vahamy aham. As soon as you become Krishna conscious, you simply depend on Him and work sincerely and then  Krishna will supply everything.

So this is practically being manifested. State, example, in the Bombay, now the land is one crore of rupees' worth. And when I purchased this land I had, might be, three or four lakhs. So it was completely speculation because I was confident that "I shall be able to pay. Krishna will give me." There was no money. That's a long history. I do not wish to discuss. But I have got now practical experience that you depend on Krishna - there will be no scarcity. Whatever you want, it will be fulfilled. Tesam nityabhiyuktanam. So be always engaged in Krishna consciousness. Then everything will be fulfilled, any desire, if you have got.

Lecture - Vrindavana, December 2, 1975

“But let me live for hundred years. Then we shall talk about Krishna." And Prahlada Maharaja said, "No." Adhruvam: "You do not know when you will die. At any moment you can die." Padam padam yad vipadam. Therefore, before your next death, you realize Krishna. Durlabham manusam janma tad apy adhruvam. But arthadam. Arthadam means even if you live for a few years and if you take the chance of chanting Hare Krishna, still, you are benefited. You are still benefited.

So this chanting of Hare Krishna is so important that you can think always that "Death is coming. Death is at my door. Let me finish my chanting. Let me finish my chanting." Always you should think like that, that "Death is already coming, so let me chant." So this is called bhagavata-dharma, and Krishna consciousness movement means bhagavata-dharma. So you read Prahlada Maharaja's instruction very nicely and utilize it in your life. Your life will be successful.

Lecture - Madras, January 2, 1976

So brahma-bhutah means these things are the symptom: he is joyful, prasannatma, na socati na kanksati, and samah sarvesu bhutesu. Then he can see.

Vidya-vinaya-sampanne brahmani gavi hastini, suni caiva sva-pake..., pandita... He has become pandita. Samah sarvesu bhutesu. When these conditions are fulfilled, mad-bhaktim labhate param - then he enters into devotional service. So devotional service is not a sentiment. It is most scientific, just to become freed from the contamination of this material world…

... Just like the Buddhist philosophers, they think sunyavadi. And the Mayavadi, nirvisesa. They are practically the same. The Buddhists say, "There is no God." And the Mayavadis say, "There is God, but He has no head, tail, nothing." It is in the indirect way to say there is no God. What is difference? If somebody says, "There is no God," and if somebody says, "There is God, but He has no head, He has no tail, He cannot eat, He cannot sleep," negatively. The same definition in a negative way
