“People don’t know what they are getting into, sometimes. If you are a brahmana, be merciful to your Guru and be strict; be merciful to yourself. Because Yamaraj has got a special book for brahmanas. But if you are careful and you act as a brahmana, you can make quick advancement, that is the advantage. Of course, people, when they are young and enthusiastic, they want to make quick advancement. But we should always remain young at heart and enthusiastic, right? we want to get back to Krishna, in this life time. Sometimes, brahmanas, they get attacked by maya like everybody else, but then it is worse. so they should be more careful, they should recover as quick as possible.”
