So BhaktivinodaThakura is an ideal guru. He was not a sannyasi; he was grhastha, householder, living with family, wife, children. Still, he was guru. So anyone can become guru. So one has to adjust things. Not that” Because I am grhastha, householder, I cannot become a preacher. It is the business of the sannyasi or brahmacari." No. It is the business of everyone. The whole world is suffering for want of knowledge ...So from his dealings, from his life, we should learn how one can become a preacher in any stage of life. It doesn't matter what he is.

Our recommendation is that whatever position you are, you can chant Hare Krsna. So even the workers in the factory, they can chant Hare Krsna. What is the difficulty? Even in factory, they take some leisure hours. So why not sit down for five minutes, ten minutes, and chant Hare Krsna? Where is the difficulty? Apart from the work they are doing, we are recommending, "Whatever is done is done. You chant Hare Krsna. Then everything will be all right."
Room Conversation - May 24, 1974
Don't associate with nondevotee. If you want to make progress, don't associate. Associate does not mean to talk with a nondevotee is association. No. That we have to do. As gentlemen, as devotee, we can. But not intimately. Associate means dadatipratigrhnati bhunkte bhojayate caiva, guhyam akhyati prcchati ca. These are intimate relationship, dealing, giving something to your friend, accepting something from your friend, feeding your friend, accept food from him, and disclose your mind to your friend, and understand his mind. Sad vidham priti laksanam. So with devotee we should deal in six ways.
