Bg 8.5 Lecture
Prabhupāda: There is a story. In a cowshed there was fire. So after that incidence, the cow, as soon as the cow sees something red, oh, they began to disturb, “Oh, there is fire.” Similarly, here, tasting the bitterness of so-called rascaldom, they think that Rādhā-Kṛṣṇa is also similar rascaldom. So we shall begin? So when they have sent the file? Did you ask?Brahmānanda:Prabhupāda:Brahmānanda:Prabhupāda:[I offer my respectful obeisances unto my spiritual master, who with the torchlight of know…

Conversation at Airport
Prabhupāda: So our Kṛṣṇa consciousness movement is to educate people to understand the value of life. The modern system of education and civilization is so degraded that people have forgotten the value of life. Generally, in this material world, everyone is forgetful of the value of life, but the human form of life is a chance to awaken the importance of life.Brahmānanda:Śyāmasundara:Prabhupāda:Guest (1) [Indian man]:Prabhupāda:Guest (1):Prabhupāda:Guest (1):Prabhupāda:Guest (1):Prabhupāda:Guest…
