Guidelines for Leaders

I perused some of the letters written by our guru, Srila Prabhupada, on the topic of leadership.  Some phrases are worth sharing:

“Our leaders shall be careful not to kill the spirit of enthusiastic service, which is individual and spontaneous and voluntary.” –Letter 1972, December

“Everything should be managed in a nice way so that no one is dissatisfied and everyone keeps their health and energy fit for serving Krishna 24 hours.” –Letter January 1973

“We may forgive once, twice, but not more than that, we must take other steps.” – Letter December 31st, 1972

“The point is that the women must be protected and it is the duty of leaders of our society to see that this is carried out.” –Letter February 19th, 1973

“It should be our definite policy that nobody is ill-treated that he may go away.” –Letter August 22nd, 1972

“Everyone should consider himself the servant of the other.  That will make management very nice.” –Letter August 16th, 1976

“From time to time there will be disturbances…  Don’t worry about it, just go on chanting Hare Krishna and engage your energy for Krishna in the best way open to you.” –Letter August 15th, 1967

“The principle should be that we utilize our talents for the service of the Lord.” –Letter August 29th, 1967

“We should never sit idly and ask Krishna to do everything.” –Letter February 25th, 1968
