Hṛdāyānanda: …puffed up with knowledge. id1

Prabhupāda: What is their knowledge, nonsense? He has knowl…? Have they knowledge? id2

Bhagavān: They're trying to prove that sense gratification is bona fide. id3

Guru-kṛpā: And the explanation of… id4

Prabhupāda: And where is sense gratification? As soon as nature kicks you out, where is your sense gratification? id5

Hṛdāyānanda: It's a relative thing. Actually, compared to the ordinary man, he's much more intelligent. id6

Prabhupāda: What is intelligence? id7

Hṛdāyānanda: He's thinking that “I know so many things, and these other people, they don't know these things. Therefore I'm better than them.” id8

Prabhupāda: So the birds and beasts, they know better than you many things. There are many birds and beasts. id9

Guru-kṛpā: “They can't… They can't explain it.” id10

Prabhupāda: Eh? id11

Guru-kṛpā: “They can't explain it.” id12

Prabhupāda: You also cannot explain. What is explaining? All nonsense. id13

Guru-kṛpā: “Well, I can explain.” id14

Prabhupāda: “Perhaps.” “Might be.” “It was like this and that…” What is that explanation? id15

Guru-kṛpā: Well, the common man doesn't challenge that. id16

Prabhupāda: Mean common men are fool. But why we should accept? id17

Bhagavān: If they could really explain it, so many things would not be going wrong. id18

Prabhupāda: Hmm? id19

Bhagavān: If they could actually explain it, so many things would not be going wrong. The thing is, their explanation causes more problems. id20

Satsvarūpa: But they say that… When we say that everything is done by Kṛṣṇa, they say that's also “perhaps,” “maybe.” They don't see… id21

Prabhupāda: No, we have got evidence. Ahaṁ sarvasya prabhavo mattaḥ sarvaṁ pravartate [Bg. 10.8]. We have got evidence. id22

Satsvarūpa: As we don't accept theirs, they don't accept ours. id23

Prabhupāda: You don't accept… You don't… Why shall I accept you? You don't accept me; I don't accept you. Why you become authority? id24

Guru-kṛpā: Then they say “Finished. Get out.” id25

Prabhupāda: Yes. No, my question is that “Why they become atheists, a little knowledge, so-called scientists?” id26

Madhudviṣa: They have to become atheists. id27

Prabhupāda: Hmm? id28

Madhudviṣa: They have to become atheist. If they don't become atheists, then they can't play their games anymore. The idea of their research finishes as soon as you admit that there is God. But if you say, “There's no God,” then they can research. It was explained that… id29

Prabhupāda: They can continue to befool you, that, and take money. And as soon as you don't give them money, there is no research. Then they starve. id30

Puṣṭa Kṛṣṇa: We've seen, though, from examples in the Vedic literatures like Viśvakarma and Āyur-vedic medicine, that it's possible to engage in architecture, medicine, such activities, without being atheistic. So it must not simply be that they're scientists, but that they're actually… id31

Bhagavān: Demons. id32

Puṣṭa Kṛṣṇa: Demons. id33

Prabhupāda: Yes. id34

Puṣṭa Kṛṣṇa: Āsuraṁ bhāvam āśritaḥ [Bg. 7.15]. id35

Yaśodānandana: The actual motive is to fill the belly. id36

Prabhupāda: Moghāśā mogha-karmanaḥ [Bg. 9.12]. id37

Bhagavān: Actually, they're envious, because they say that “There is no Supreme Person controlling,” but then, on the other hand, they want to become the supreme person controlling. id38

Prabhupāda: They cannot. id39

Bhagavān: So it's just a matter of envy. id40

Puṣṭa Kṛṣṇa: Who was that demon? He got some benediction from Lord Śiva. Anyone he touched, his head would fall off, but he wanted to use it against Lord Śiva. [break] id41

Prabhupāda: When one is jealous of God, then gradually jealous of everyone. id42

Puṣṭa Kṛṣṇa: Jealousy. id43

Prabhupāda: Jealousy, yes. id44

Siddha-svarūpānanda: So then if I'm jealous of others, it's really just a reflection of my jealousy of Kṛṣṇa. id45

Prabhupāda: Yes. id46

Siddha-svarūpānanda: And if I am angry at others, it's because I'm angry at Kṛṣṇa also. id47

Prabhupāda: Everything begins from Kṛṣṇa. Mattaḥ sarvam pravartate [Bg. 10.8]. Where is your other friend? Oh, here he is! id48

Tamāla Kṛṣṇa: Śiva-jvara. id49

Prabhupāda: All right. [break] “Jaya Prabhupāda. Haribol.” [laughs] They'll not touch unless I give, and they are satisfied, even one grain. That is… They don't want more, that “Give me more.” No. But constantly. [laughs at child] [break] Make folded hand. Yes. Sometimes he'll press like that, eh, to show me that I am done. They make quick friends with old men. [laughter] [break] …a few katias[?], that is very easy. You assort the katias. You go any place, daytime. And nighttime, take a katia and spread anywhere, and you can sleep. Indian system. id50

Jayapatāka: Cot. id51

Prabhupāda: Cot. Mass of cot. id52

Jayapatāka: With rope. id53

Prabhupāda: With rope. That's all. Small. You can keep fifty, sixty. So keep it in one place. And at night take one, and anywhere you can sleep. Very easy. [aside:] Hare Kṛṣṇa. id54

Children: Jaya Prabhupāda! id55

Prabhupāda: Jaya. [break] …ṣata-doltena malenatvaṁ na muñcyati.[?] If you take a coal and wash it, one who has… Still black. id56

Jayapatāka: And he does not allow himself to be washed. He never comes to the temple. id57

Prabhupāda: No. If he… A coal, however you go on with soap and other things, go on washing, it will never become clean. Aṅgarasya śata-doltena malenatvaṁ na muñcyati.[?] What is the defect? Why the…? The window is becoming black. id58

Jayapatāka: The lids are… We purchased some new lids yesterday. The lids have been damaged. Therefore the smoke is leaking. id59

Prabhupāda: So why damage cannot be repaired? id60

Jayapatāka: No, we purchased yesterday. They're going to install today. [break] id61

Hari-śauri: …has painted for your books, so he must be fairly good. id62

Prabhupāda: Oh. If he has painted for my books, then he should be first class. id63

Jayapatāka: He says he'll finish the one painting in five days. id64

Prabhupāda: It doesn't matter they take five days or ten days. It must be done very nice. [break] [young children yelling] Hmm. That's nice. [break] id65

Madhudviṣa: …attached to his hair. He will give it up if you tell him. [break]. id66

Prabhupāda: No, he has to voluntarily do it. [to children:] Hare Kṛṣṇa. Jaya. [end] id67
