In Kali-yuga Devotees Give Life, Don’t Kill

Lecturing on 1 March 1974 in Mayapur on Caitanya Caritamrta, Srila Prabhupada said, “Now, Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu incarnation [said], “if they want to kill them, they are already dead. To give them life again is Krishna’s or Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu’s special gift.” In other words if one employs the sastra of knowledge, rather than the astra or weapon of destruction, one is a true follower of Sri Caitanya, giving life to the dead.
