Neither misguided absolutists nor relativists are seeking the truth. Misguided absolutists are convinced that they have already attained the truth, whereas relativists doubt that an ultimate truth exists. Among these two classes, generally only the relativists will give devotees a hearing, for they profess to be open-minded and willing to learn about what they consider to be others’ views. The challenge for Vaisnava preachers is to unambiguously and uncompromisingly communicate the message of Krsna consciousness to all types of persons, yet to do so non-dogmatically, not simply making pronouncements but by explaining the philosophy in a cogent, reasonable manner—scientifically (i.e., rationally and logically), as Srila Prabhupada did.

To fight for Krsna is a privilege accorded to topmost devotees—transcendental titans of the order of Hanuman, Arjuna, Madhvacarya, Ramanujacarya, Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati, and our own most worshipable Srila Prabhupada. It is the great mercy of these eternal associates of Krsna that they have accorded to even much less qualified persons like ourselves the opportunity to enroll as footsoldiers in the battle against all in the world that is not Krsna conscious.
