Prabhupada's Humility

Srila Prabhupada's concept of humility can be said to be the knowledge that everything belongs to Krishna, everything is enacted by Krishna, and that all power is derived from Krishna alone. In a Hyderabad lecture in 1972 he said, "People say so much about me, that I have done some wonderful thing. But I say that I am not a magician. I'm not a magician. My only credit is that I am presenting Krsna as He is. That's all. I am not diluting Krsna. That is not my business. And therefore, because it is pure, pure ghee, therefore everyone accepts. And if you place dalda [10th rate cooking oil], mixing with ghee some rascal thing, then nobody will accept. Therefore, so many swamis went before me in the Western countries, and they presented adulterated, and there was not a single person became a krsna-bhakta. Now, by thousands they are becoming. Why? Because it is presented pure thing. Pure thing will be accepted everywhere. I give this example. In a, in Delhi, there is... I have seen. One, there is confectioner's shop. He rigidly prepares in pure ghee all the sweetmeats. So you'll find always hundreds of customers there."
