“The real way to have Rama-rajya is to convince others to love Rama and to act in this mood, as loving servants of God. The residents of Ayodhya were prepared to do anything for Rama. When He was exiled to the forest, they were all prepared to go with Him. He had to convince them to stay behind, to keep His city going. It's not that they were prepared to worship Rama only if they would get some opulence. They were prepared to give up everything in a moment to be with Rama or to satisfy Rama. They could do anything for the satisfaction of Sita and Rama. So when a significant portion of the people have this understanding, then automatically, naturally, there will be Rama-rajya.”

✨Note: “Lord Rama was so saintly that people even now are anxious to live in the kingdom of Lord Rama (rama rajya), but Lord Rama never showed any cowardice. Ravana was an aggressor against Rama because Ravana kidnapped Rama’s wife, Sita, but Lord Rama gave him sufficient lessons, unparalleled in the history of the world.”

"The Mahabharata claims we can know a larger, richer reality not by trying to control it, but by opening our minds and hearts to life's higher dimension. We thus directly experience a higher nature so beautiful, sublime, and real that to doubt it becomes self-evidently irrational, even absurd."

“It doesn’t matter what one’s external position is…the whole point of devotional service is it’s not about the body…it’s about giving one’s whole self to further Prabhupada’s western mission.” - H.D Goswami
