Indians Should Become Gurus and Save the World


If you simply do this missionary work and say, "krishna is the Supreme," then you become a great devotee. You become a guru. Why do people not do so? It is not a very difficult task. This is Caitanya Mahaprabhu's mission. He said, "By My order you become a guru." Indians especially are advised to become gurus because Indians, however fallen they may be, still have respect for krishna. In every home they perform krishna's Janmastami. Therefore Indians are fortunate. They recognize krishna. Now, to become a little more advanced, let them act as krishna's servant.13

Everyone is advised to become a guru. Especially those born in India. They can easily take to the krishna consciousness movement because in their blood there is krishna consciousness, on account of taking birth in this holy land of Bharata-varsa. So every Indian is expected to take to this krishna consciousness movement and spread it outside India. There are many people who are hankering after it.14Caitanya Mahaprabhu instructed everyone to become a guru. The world is suffering for want of krishna consciousness. That was His mission. He wanted everyone from India to become a guru and preach outside. "Become a guru on My order, and deliver your country or other countries." "But I have no qualification, no education. How I can become guru?" Caitanya Mahaprabhu says, amara ajnaya: "By My order." "Then what is Your order, Sir?" "My order is yare dekha, tare kaha 'krishna '-upadesa. This is My order. Simply explain what krishna has said. Or what has been said about krishna." That is krishna-upadesa. "Simply preach krishna-upadesa. Then you become a guru." Not only that. He has empowered all Indians.    Bharata-bhumite haila
