D on’t criticize each other, and don’t quarrel. Make a very beautiful community here, an ideal place where all Vaisnavas can come. Don’t block anyone from coming. Always open your door.

We have come to tell you that our religion is prema. It has been written about Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, “Krsna-prema-pradayate.” If you are in this line but are engaged in quarreling, then where is that prema? Charity begins from home. First be trained in prema. If you have no prema for all living beings, how can you have prema for Mahaprabhu, Nityananda Prabhu and Radha and Krsna Conjugal? In fact, you should have prema for trees, creepers, worms, and other animals as well.

“O most munificent incarnation! You are Kṛṣṇa Himself appearing as Śrī Kṛṣṇa Caitanya Mahāprabhu. You have assumed the golden colour of Śrīmatī Rādhārāṇī, and You are widely distributing pure love of Kṛṣṇa. We offer our respectful obeisances unto You.
