Bg 4.11 Lecture
Prabhupāda: " ye yathā māṁ prapadyante tāṁs tathaiva bhajāmy aham mama vartmānuvartante manuṣyāḥ pārtha sarvaśaḥ [Bg. 4.11]" Lord Kṛṣṇa says that “every man is following My path, indirectly or directly.” The supreme position of the Lord is that He is in the supreme absolute position, and every other living being, they are all subordinate.

SB 6.1.13-14
Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam 6.1.13–14 Prabhupāda: So we have been discussing this verse for the last two days. Tyāgena. Partially I have already explained: tyāga, renounce. There is some natural tendency also for renouncing. When one gets to the topmost of material opulence, immediately there is a tendency for renunciation. This hippie movement is like that.
