As diversity grows, what is going to maintain the unity? Clear understanding of Prabhupada’s teachings, the message of the Founder-Acarya which is the message of the previous acaryas in a very simple form, with a particular mood. If ISKCON is going to continue, that is a must! And, I’m placing a responsibility on all of you. Please, take it seriously to understand the message of Prabhupada’s books. Why? To make sure that the International Society for Krishna Consciousness will go on even after the Prabhupada disciples are gone. Say it the opposite way: if you want to make sure that ISKCON does not continue, don’t carefully study Prabhupada’s books because it is sure to happen.
