Thought Of The Day

 Prabhupada: Because he carries the message of Krsna. Krsna is friend, and he is carrying the friendly message. Therefore he is friend. If there is a nice friend and if somebody gives information of that nice friend, he is also friend. Therefore nobody can become friend except Krsna's representative.

let's take a wonderful example to understand caste system :

The current Indian system is something like accepting the sons of supreme court judges as supreme court judges… It’s nonsense. They have to be qualified, they have to attend the university and pass the course, then they have to work under a…
