Radhanath Swami : The greatest thing any of us can do, individually or collectively, is to educate people. There must be spiritual education based on universal and eternal religious principles. People must be educated by our words, and especially by our examples. People learn more by what we do than what we say. One of the greatest reasons why people lose faith in religion is because people speak very nicely but they act very differently. So whatever field of life we may be in, whether we are lawyers, businessmen or engineers, we should live according to the principles of love and devotion. If our foundation is based on scientific, true, spiritual principles and we come together with like-minded people to refine our understandings, we can offer the best we have for the betterment of society.

It is our duty as human beings, however big or small we may be, to try and make a difference within the world.
