"Most of you will fall"
Prabhupada : "Most of you will fall.Actuall I havnt given any of you sannyas, but I am in a war with Maya, the material energy and I need leaders. It is called in wartime Battlefield commission. There are no qualified leaders but someone has to lead the charge. So you take every fifth man, now you are lieutenant of the squad. He really is a private but we make him lieutenant for the day and he leads the charge. It is to be understood that you are not sufficiently equipped for this fight and most of you will go down" (Srila Prabhupada Conversation with Tamal Krishna 1976 after Mayapur festival)
