Prabhupada: Harer nama, harer nama. Everyone is
happy, the children, the woman
. They don't demand anything, that "Give
us this, give us that." They have simplified, automatically they have
simplified their life
. And gradually develop, make little cottages,
grow little vegetable, little barley or wheat and milk. That is
. We don't require much. We don't want luxury. We want just
