“Going out and distributing books may not always be very comfortable. Having to go to people, they tell you, “You nonsense, you rascal. Get out of my way. Don’t bother me.” Or so many other problems are there – The heat, the sun, the inconvenience sometimes, irregular diet; different things are there. But because it is very conducive for spiritual life to give God consciousness to others, we voluntarily accept this austerity.”
