Practically we find that in your country there are so many big universities, and the government arranges for educating the entire population, but still hippies are coming out of the institutions. It is understood that in some of the big universities the entire student body has become hippies. Of course, the hippy philosophy is nice in the sense that they have become disgusted with the materialistic way of life. Therefore they want to renounce the stereotyped way of life. Unfortunately, they have no good leader, neither they have information that there is another beautiful life in Krishna consciousness.” — Srila Prabhupada letter to Giriraj Swami

Giriraj Swami: “So, that is where Srila Prabhupada came in. As he observed, ‘The hippies know what is wrong, but they don’t know what is right.’ He was the leader that we needed, and he showed us what was wrong and what was right—the beautiful life in Krishna consciousness.”
