One MOON-is what Prabhupada wants
So if each and every man becomes like that... Of course, it is not expected that each and every man will become like that. At least, ten
percent of the population become Krsna consciousness--there is guarantee, peace in the world. Because ekas candra... We do not
require many moons in the sky. Only one moon is sufficient to drive away the darkness. Varam eka guni putra na ca murkha-satair api.

satisfied if I could find out one only. There is no need of so-called millions of stars.
Prabhupada: (Hindi) If you agree to cooperate with me, you'll see immediately. Because I want to deliver the real thing, therefore in my
feeble health I am prepared to go. If one man can understand, that I want to see. I am traveling all over the world to see that at least
one man may understand. They have spoiled the whole situation by misinterpreting, by malinterpreting, and by bringing some rascal and pose as leader. The whole world is spoiled. If you want to preach some rascal philosophy, you do. Why you take Bhagavad-gita? That is cheating.
