Thought Of The Day

Prabhupada: Yes. So the jiva is between these two things. Therefore they are called tatastha, marginal. Sometimes you may be in darkness and sometimes you may be in jyoti. That is your position. So those who are accepting Krsna's word, they are in jyoti. And those who are interpreting Krsna in darkness, they are in darkness. Unless one has accepted Krsna as He is, he is in darkness. Therefore Krsna describing him, mudha, naradhama. That man might have been in the jyoti, but he is…

Thought Of The Day

Prabhupada: To become faithful, surrender. That is. Therefore Krsna says, "You rascal, surrender. You are not faithful; therefore you are condemned. You surrender first. Then next thing." So unless he becomes a surrendered soul, there is no hope. There is no hope. He will never understand.
