Prabhupāda Says: “Simple living and high thinking is the solution to economic problems. Therefore the Krsna consciousness movement in engaging devotees in producing their own food and living self-sufficiently so that rascals may see how one can live very peacefully, eat the food grains one has grown oneself, drink milk, and chant Hare Kṛṣṇa”
[Teachings of Queen Kunti]
Well how far have we progressed over the last thirty five years to be able to prove that Śrīla Prabhupāda’s ‘simple living and high thinking’ motto was achievable?
Well the truth be known we have yet to prove it for we as a society have more or less ignored this vision of a self sufficient rural culture and instead opted to follow the GBC’s failing urban assimilation program.
