SP mentioning that the only goal is Krishna
After this particular ishta-goshthi he chided us: "What are you talking about?"
I said, "We are talking about our goals."
He said, "The goal is Krishna," and I had a feeling that we hadn't used the ishta-goshthi properly. Instead of speculating about taking over the world through cultural influence, we should have been discussing how to become pure devotees to preach Prabhupada's mission. Then Krishna would become pleased to give us the power to take over the world.
