“This is our management(?). Very bad management. What can I do? This is our movement. We have to select men from the worst class.”

“This is our management(?). Very bad management. What can I do? This is our movement. We have to select men from the worst class.”

Prabhupada said, “This is our management(?). Very bad management. What can I do? This is our movement. We have to select men from the worst class. Papi tapi jato chilo. (laughs) Nobody will come here after passing M.A., Ph.D. The most fallen we have to select.” – Conversations pieces, 27 May 1977, Vrindavan

Prabhupada: …First part. (pause)
Yasomatinandana: That is in First Canto, Part Two, which is not here.
Prabhupada: This shelter made for keeping always reference book… There is no book. Vrindavan. Just see. See. The shelter kept there, reference book. It is not there. Just see. What for we have got shelter? Shelf is there for keeping reference book. Somebody has taken away. That’s all. This is our management(?). Very bad management. What can I do? This is our movement. We have to select men from the worst class. Papi tapi jata chilo. (laughs) Nobody will come here after passing M.A., Ph.D. The most fallen we have to select.
Tamala Krishna: Lowest(?).
Prabhupada: Papi tapi jata chilo, hari-name uddharilo. This is our position. We have to select our worker from the worst class of the society, papi and tapi. But, we shall prove, by hari-nama they become Krishna conscious. That is the movement. You trace the history of everyone. All worst, third class. And they come here. And that is Krishna conscious movement. How many Doctor Svarupa has come? If we speak frankly, (laughter) all from the worst class. Those who were finished. And Krishna… It is said, papi-tapi jata chilo. Papi and tapi, they are not first class. They are the tenth class…
