  • "At least maintain"
September 28, 2011

Below is a famous letter from Srila Prabhupada, in which he expressed, in essence, "If you can't expand what I have given you, then at least don't let it diminish."

"So it is up to you to learn it and be able to present it nicely. Now you have everything, respect, philosophy, money, temples, books, all these things I have given, but I am an old man and my notice is already there. Now it is up to you all how to manage it. If you cannot increase it, you should at least maintain what I have given you. You cannot accuse me that I have not given you anything. So it is a great responsibility you now have."
