naham ninde na ca staumi
etesam sreya asase
Translation by His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada:
Different people are of different mentalities. Therefore it is not my business either to praise them or to blaspheme them. I only desire their welfare, hoping that they will agree to become one with the Supersoul, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Krsna.
Purport by His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada:
As soon as one comes to the platform of bhakti-yoga, one understands fully that the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Vasudeva, is the goal of life (vasudevah sarvam iti sa
mahatma sudurlabhah). This is the instruction of all the Vedic literature (vedais ca sarvair aham eva vedyah, sarva dharman parityajya mam ekam saranam vraja). There is no use in praising someone for material qualifications or blaspheming him for material disqualifications. In the material world, good and bad have no meaning because if one is good he may be elevated to a higher planetary system and if one is bad he may be degraded to the lower planetary systems. People of different mentalities are sometimes elevated and sometimes degraded, but this is not the goal of life. Rather, the goal of life is to become free from elevation and degradation and take to Krsna consciousness. Therefore a saintly person does not discriminate between that which is supposedly good and supposedly bad; rather, he desires for everyone to be happy in Krsna consciousness, which is the ultimate goal of life.
