“Kṛṣṇa is joyful. I am part and parcel of Kṛṣṇa therefore I must be also joyful. That is natural. If my father is black, then I am also black. So our father, the supreme father Kṛṣṇa, is joyful. He is not engaged in some industrial work or heavy machine making. He is simply playing on His flute, and Rādhārāṇī is there. That is joyful nature.” – Hawaii, March 21, 1969
