Giriraj Swami: I went into Srila Prabhupada’s room in Calcutta and said, “Before I came to Krishna consciousness, I used to make movies. Do you think I should make movies for Krishna?” Srila Prabhupada replied, “There are others who can do that. Our main medium is books.” Then I said, “I also like to cultivate big people.” He said, “Oh that is very important. Yes, you should cultivate big people and convince them of the importance of Krishna consciousness.

I said, “Srila Prabhupada, right now you’re here, and everything is going nicely. But what if in the future, when you’re not here, ISKCON falls from the standard? What should I do?” Srila Prabhupada replied, “You are also one of the important members of the Society. You work to correct the problems, but don’t leave.
