‘When Krishna and His eternal servants descend in His many lilas, they come in a very revolutionary mood. Their lives and examples go against the grain of material culture, because they bring the culture of the spiritual world. They come to create the atmosphere of the spiritual world, to share the culture of our original home with us’
(Bhakti Tirtha Swami, Reflections on Sacred Teachings, Vol. VI, Radha-Sunya: Missing Mercyp.112)

‘Spiritual life is not a matter of reform; it is a complete revolution’
(Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakur Maharaja)

‘Conversion’ means ‘the other way around’. Genuine spiritualists are not interested in attracting followers, wealth or fame to themselves. They are not interested in converting the masses so-to-speak. They want to change the hearts of worldly persons, to fan the spark of spirituality that is there. They want to convert material consciousness to spiritual consciousness and, in this sense, create a revolution within this material world.
