"If you want to know me, you can imagine so many things: 'Swamiji may be this. Swamiji may be that, like that, like this, like that.' They are all imperfect. But if I tell you about myself openly that 'I am like this,' then your knowledge is perfect."
(Srila Prabhupada Lecture, Nairobi, October 27, 1975)
"If you want to know me, then you must know about me from me. You can not speculate about me."
(Srila Prabhupada Conversation, Los Angeles, June 4, 1976)
"So that means, anyway, if you want to know about me, then you must know from me. That is authentic. That is authentic."
(Srila Prabhupada Lecture, New York, May 27, 1966)
