Prabhupada On Tour — New Dwarka
#Prabhupada in New Dwarka
[00:51]When there’s a decline in religion I descend.
[01:09]Or My devotee I may send.
[01:59]He’s the kind and gentle soul who’s heart is never cold,
[02:05]So peaceful and poetic with a message true and bold.
[02:12]He’s never seeking praise, so silent and so grave,
[02:17]and his transcendental love is the magic in his ways.
[02:23]And when I see his love I know I’ve got a long, long way to go.
[02:29]When will I taste the love that he is feeling inside?
[02:44]He’s always meek and mild, with a warm and friendly smile.
[02:51]So simple in his living, singing all the while.
[02:57]He sings out Krsna’s name, His glory and His fame.
[03:02]To serve his Lord and master in pleasure or in pain.
[03:09]And when I see his love I know I’ve got a long, long way to go.
[03:14]When will I taste the love that he is feeling inside?
[03:51]And when I see his love I know I’ve got a long, long way to go.
[03:56]When will I taste the love that he is feeling inside?
[04:12]You’ll find no lust and greed in a heart that’s pure and free.
[04:18]He’s a lover of the Lord and his life is ecstasy.
[04:24]He only dies to live and living tries to give
[04:30]the happiness that’s found in the sound of Krsna’s name.
[04:36]And when I see his love I know I’ve got a long, long way to go.
[04:42]When will I taste the love that he is feeling inside?
[04:58]O merciful Prabhupada, your eyes they gaze
[05:05]Taking heard-hearted souls and making them pure.
[05:13]You’re mace is your mercy, soothing and warm
[05:21]Your love is a guard from maya’s dark storm.
[05:32]Your heart it contains, the Lord’s loving grace.
[05:39]The smile you partake of, face to face.
[05:48]You give us all hope, as the ship was going down.
[05:55]With you as the Captain we surely won’t drown.
[06:06]Every town and village will sing Krsna’s name.
[06:11]Bringing forth the prophecy that Lord Caitanya proclaimed.
[06:21]Param guru gave books to cure me of diseases that come with this age.
[06:32]Goloka, full of spiritual pleasure, he reveals on every page.
[07:25]My dear grandfather spiritual master, unto you I most humbly pray
[07:37]That this serpant-like non-devote in the dust of your feet will stay.
[08:18]Krsna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, the source of all the be.
[08:32]The embodiment of bliss, the destination of the pure devotee.
[08:43]He’s the all-pervading truth, the eternally existing youth.
[08:49]And He comes to take you home, yes He comes to take you home.
[09:01]Of the splendid, He is splendor, He is victory and adventure.
[09:07]He is the good quality in all righteous men.
[09:12]Of creation He is beginning, middle and end.
[09:26]Krsna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead.
[09:33]Of the senses He is the mind, among men He is the monarch.
[09:44]Of subduers, He is time.
[09:50]Of secrets, He is silence and He comes to end the violence that terrifies the Earth.
[10:02]Yes He’s come and taken birth.
[10:08]In the sound of His holy name, the Lord and His name are the same.
[10:14]That’s the nature of the absolute. And He comes to give His truth.
[10:24]As He plays upon His flute.
[20:49]We simply follow the predecessor’s instruction, that’s all.
[20:55]Our movement is very easy because we haven’t got to manufacture something.
[21:03]We simply repeat the words and the instruction given by the predecessor.
[21:14]Krishna instructed Brahma, Brahma instructed Narada, Narada instructed
[21:22]Vyasadeva, Vyasadeva instructed Madhvacarya, and in this way…
[21:31]…then Madhavendra Puri, Isvara Puri, Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, then the Six Gosvamis,
[21:40]then Srinivasa Acarya, Kaviraja Gosvami, Narottama dasa Thakura, Visvanatha Cakravarti,
[21:51]Jagannatha dasa Babaji, Bhaktivinoda Thakura, Gaurakisora dasa Babaji, Bhaktisiddhanta
[22:00]Sarasvati, and then we are doing the same thing. There is no difference.
[22:07]That is the specific procedure of the Krsna consciousness movement.
[22:14]You are singing daily,
[22:19]guru-mukha-padma-vakya, cittete koriya aikya, ar na koriho mane asa.
[22:28]Very simple thing.
[22:30]We are receiving the transcendental knowledge through guru-parampara succession.
[22:38]So we have to simply take instruction from guru,
[22:46]and if we execute that to our heart and soul, that is success.
[22:55]That is practical.
[22:58]I have no personal qualification, but I simply tried to satisfy my guru. That’s all.
[23:10]My Guru Maharaja asked me that “If you get some money, you print books.”
[23:20]So there was a private meeting, talking, some of my important Godbrothers also there.
[23:33]It was in Radha-kunda.
[23:34]So Guru Maharaja was speaking to me that,
[23:42]“Since we have got this Bagh Bazaar marble temple, there has been so many dissensions,
[23:52]and everyone thinking who will occupy this room or that room, that room.
[24:01]I wish, therefore, to sell this temple and the marble and print some book.”
[24:14]So I took up this from his mouth, that he is very fond of books.
[24:20]And he told me personally that “If you get some money, print books.”
[24:24]Therefore I am stressing on this point:
[24:28]“Where is book? Where is book? Where is book?” So kindly help me.
[24:33]This is my request. Print as many books in as many languages
[24:42]and distribute throughout the whole world.
[24:45]Then Krsna consciousness movement will automatically increase.
[24:52]Now the educated learned scholars, they are appreciating our movement
[25:00]by reading books, by taking practical result.
[25:04]Dr. Stillson Judah, he has written one book, perhaps you know,
[25:14]“Hare Krishna and Counterculture”, a very nice book about our movement,
[25:24]and he is giving importance.
[25:28]He has admitted that “Swamiji, you have done wonderful thing, service to the humanity.”
[25:38]A man must have life to be a preacher.
[25:41]A dead man can not preach.
[25:44]You must preach Lord Caitanya’s message all throughout the world.
[25:49]And if you get money, print books. See love for Krishna unfurl.
[25:56]They are making propaganda that “These American devotees, they are CIA.”
[26:05]This propaganda is very strong in India
[26:09]Making the people against these American boys who are preaching.
[26:15]You give him one book, that Scientific Basis of…
[26:25]Yes, you can give him one book. You read it.
[26:30]Dr. Gerson has promised that he will read every single one of your books
[26:34]before he writes his book. He’s very serious.
[26:38]That is very kind of you. We have got about fifty books.
[26:45]And it is increasing.
[26:47]Perhaps in the next two months we shall increase another seventeen books.
[26:52]There are seventeen books pending to be published.
[26:57]Srila Prabhupada, what these tests will show is that when a person came first he was
[27:00]doing some drugs or some nonsense, and now that he’s taken to Krsna consciousness,
[27:04]he has become so much more of a healthy and wholesome person.
[27:07]That is the test. That is the real test.
[27:11]How we got so many devotees from the hippie group?
[27:18]So how they have given up all their bad habits. This is the real test.
[27:24]The function of his testing is to show that, that that change takes place
[27:29]in a way that other scientists will accept it. That is his purpose.
[27:33]Oh, that’s nice. That is already admitted by educated class.
[27:42]Therefore they are becoming attracted.
[27:45]…I would like to show them the path, so that they won’t be cheated any longer.
[27:48]Provided you know the path.
[27:50]I am trying to learn.
[27:52]So first of all learn it, otherwise you will be cheating.
[27:56]If you do not know the art, and if you want to do some benefit
[28:08]…to the others, then that is cheating.
[28:11]Suppose a physician, he does not know what is the medical science.
[28:16]And if he wants to become a physician, that is cheating.
[28:26]I hope through the study that I’m doing with the devotees,
[28:29]and the book that comes out of it that it will help them
[28:32]not be cheated any longer and show them the right way.
[28:38]He is advising his patients that they should chant
[28:41]Hare Krsna and come to the temple.
[28:43]Then he is very nice. Then you are friend.
[28:46]Another thing I would like to do is go to Gurukula and test the children
[28:50]and show what NBC did was very false and unfair.
[28:55]On television they did a very bad story on Gurukula.
[28:59]Yes, they’re, they cheater. He wants to cheat and get some money.
[29:04]That’s all. Because the whole so-called human society is combination of
[29:12]cheater and cheated. So anyone who is acting without Krsna consciousness,
[29:19]he is a cheater.
[29:22]And anyone who is thinking himself advanced without Krsna consciousness,
[29:27]he is cheated. This is the basic principle.
[30:42]They also say that no one can every be pure…
[30:46]That everyone is doomed to be a sinner.
[30:48]Well that is atmavan manyate jagat.
[30:53]That is the conditioned soul’s qualification.
[30:57]That if he is a fool, he thinks others fools.
[31:02]Everyone, he thinks he is like me.
[31:10]That is nature.
[31:14]Atmavan manyate jagat.
[31:18]Everyone thinks others like himself.
[31:22]If he is a fool, he thinks all are.
[31:26]So these things are no arguments.
[31:34]Nobody has seen God, how do you take these statistics?
[31:41]Can you say like that, any statistics.
[31:43]That nobody has…
[31:45]Maybe you may not have seen him, the one who has seen God.
[31:49]That is quite possible because you have not scrutinizingly studied all the men of the world.
[31:56]Then how you can say nobody has seen Him?
[31:59]You have not seen him, the man who has seen Him.
[32:01]He will not admit his fault.
[32:07]He will accuse others, nobody has seen God.
[32:10]Why? You may not have seen, but why you say nobody has seen?
[32:14]You have not seen that person who has seen God.
[32:19]Therefore you say like that.
[32:22]Those people who wrote the bible never… did not see God.
[32:35]That is… when God is canvassing, “Here I am, Krishna.” They will not see it.
[32:44]And still the accuse, “Nobody has seen.”
[32:52]O Lord the Sun’s effulgence hides your face.
[32:57]Your blissful form lies far beyond my eyes.
[33:03]And now your wonders call my heart’s embrace.
[33:08]As dawn displays your beauty in the sky.
[33:15]The rainbow shows the colors of your dress.
[33:20]The movements of the Moon reflect your mind.
[33:27]Your smiling is the cause of happiness.
[33:32]And love exists because you are so kind.
[33:39]O Govinda within my heart celestial heardsmen lotus-eyed work.
[33:50]Your precious gift of love impart.
[33:57]O you who stand behind the Sun.
[34:02]You’re the one, you’re the one in my heart, in my heart.
[34:24]The rolling rivers flow forth from your veins.
[34:31]The clouds that fill the sky come from your hair.
[34:38]The seeds of life are watered by your rain.
[34:43]And from your breathing blows the mighty air.
[34:50]Our Lord you are the source of all I see.
[34:54]Your movements are the passing days of time.
[35:01]You are the resting place of all the be.
[35:07]Love exists because you are so kind.
[35:13]O Govinda within my heart celestial heardsmen lotus-eyed work.
[35:24]Your precious gift of love impart.
[35:30]O you who stand behind the Sun.
[35:36]You’re the one, you’re the one in my heart, in my heart.
[36:22]O Govinda within my heart celestial heardsmen lotus-eyed work.
[36:33]Your precious gift of love impart.
[36:40]O you who stand behind the Sun.
[36:51]You’re the one, you’re the one.
[37:03]Just try. [37:07]
[37:19]May I try the beat?
[37:21]Yes, give him.
[37:24]Ah, ah, it is coming.
[37:36]It’s too fast… no.
[37:39]You can try. Give him, he can try.
[37:47]Srila Prabhupada… Prabhupada, on our tape recorder here that we have,
[37:53]we can make it so you can play nicely and then later on at…
[37:59]at our own time, we can play the mrdunga and karatals nicely.
[38:03]This way, we won’t waste any of your time.
[38:06]Do you think that’s a good idea?
[38:08]See, we can… after you are gone at our own time, we can play nicely.
[38:16]Do you think that is a good idea or not?
[38:18]I do not know.
[38:20]I am not an expert.
[38:23]Well if we can’t get someone to play drum…
[38:25]We would like to do that.
[38:27]We would like to do it like that Prabhupada.
[38:35]Then do that.
[38:36]No, if we could get the people to play now, that would be the best.
[39:34]My father wanted me to become like this.
[39:39]Know everything, what is going on.
[39:43]He never wanted me to be a worldly man, earning money.
[39:47]He never wanted.
[39:52]There was some arrangement for my going to England
[39:57]After my college education, to become barrister.
[40:03]My father refused. “No, my son is not going to be a mleccha.”
[40:14]As the air carries different flavors of the physical elements.
[40:25]Like the flavor of some flower or the aromatic dust of the flower and on account of
[40:38]different dust, the air scents in different flavors or accepts different color.
[40:51]Similarly everyone has got a certain type of desire
[41:01]so according to his desire the Lord appears to Him
[41:07]although such appearance, such form is not His original form.
[41:21]So the demigods are actually not the original form of the Lord,
[41:30]but they are presented to different persons according to their desires.
[41:37]So Daksa, he wants to worship the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Krsna.
[41:44]He is not interested with the demigods.
[41:51]The impersonalists, they imagine the form of the Lord as different demigods.
[42:02]Just like the Mayvadis, they worship pancopasana, five demigods.
[42:12]Actually they do not believe in the form of the Lord.
[42:17]But for the facility of the worshipper they think one may imagine some form.
[42:26]Generally they imagine the form of Visnu, the form of Shiva, the form of Ganesh.
[42:35]The form of Durga and the form of Sun-God.
[42:53]This is called pancopasana.
[42:56]But Daksa wanted to worship not that imaginary form,
[43:03]but the supreme form of the Lord, Krsna.
[43:09]This payment, Book Trust has paid to me but that is my money, not your money.
[43:18]I am paying you. It has been simply sent through you, transferred.
[43:25]But actually Book Trust is not paying to me.
[43:31]So under the circumstances, what is the account?
[43:34]You are debiting that pay to A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami.
[43:39]I have written it as a transfer because your Divine Grace told me
[43:43]you were going to give me these certified checks.
[43:45]I could do it another way.
[43:49]If you do not want to deposit the checks with us I will write it as a donation
[43:56]to some project in India. Whatever the money will be used for.
[44:01]I can simply make it a donation.
[44:03]Donation? That’s all right. But you are not donating, you are taking payment.
[44:10]Only if you want.
[44:14]You give me a statement. If not many months, at least in this month.
[44:23]What is the receipt and how it is spent and what is the balance.
[44:29]For this account in India.
[44:32]No, no. Every month you will give me a statement.
[44:38]Yes. So much received, so much spent.
[44:42]O yes. I can do that. Every month.
[44:45]No problem. I am doing that already
[44:48]and sending a full report to Bhagavan and Hansadutta each month.
[44:52]So you can give me one copy.
[44:54]Yes. I never did before because I didn’t want to disturb you with the details.
[44:58]No… details. [45:01]
[45:03]Give me this. [45:05]
[45:14]So I’ll have to also keep a record, so you can for transfer receive the check.
[45:32]Is that alright?
[45:35]I am giving in favor of BBT and you…
[45:40]We are acting like your bank.
[45:44]Yes. That’s right. That is nice.
[47:30]I have got standing order of the American Embassy.
[47:36]18 copies of each book as soon as it is published.
[47:39]The same standing order.
[47:41]But these people are not doing their job.
[47:44]In India management is very…
[47:47]So for the time being the money will not be used for the construction in Mayapur.
[47:54]It will be used to print books.
[47:57]Mayapur, they have already taken one and a half lakhs from me.
[48:01]Now Gopal Krsna in India requested that BBT give him a loan of $160,000
[48:14]In India, during the Mayapur festival he requested a loan from US BBT for $160,000.
[48:23]Which would be used to construct the second residence building.
[48:29]How he will pay back?
[48:31]His plan was that the American temples would purchase rooms
[48:35]and over a period of four or five years they would pay that money back.
[48:40]So is that still approved by your Divine Grace?
[48:44]Yes. I have no objection.
[48:47]The only think is we will have to delay the loan because
[48:51]for the next three months all our money will be used to print these seventeen books.
[48:56]First of all books, then the loan.
[48:59]We cannot hold up printing. That is not possible.
[49:06]This you must always keep in view.
[49:09]We are not going to… The surplus money we are going to pay.
[49:14]Not that at the cost of stopping printing.
[49:18]You must always keep it…
[50:44]When you require money for printing,
[49:23]there is no question of loan for temple building. This should be our…
[49:52]That is our motto. Krishna is Sun.
[50:00]So when Krishna Sun is there all these glowworm like men will be finished.
[50:11]Keep this sun always shining. Then these glowworms will be finished.
[50:31]One, that Sikh… Bhajan? What is that?
[50:39]Aha. He came to invite me.
[50:41]Really? In Hawaii? …Ah, yes.
[50:45]He came to our temple a few nights ago also for arotik.
[50:49]He has a big following.
[50:51]So he came to invite me… I indirectly refused.
[50:59]So if you are theologicians, then you must know what is God and abide by His order.
[51:17]What do you think, Dr. Judah? …Pardon?
[51:20]What do you think this proposition?
[51:22]Yes, well, I think you’re quite right. I think that it is…
[51:28]Certainly, in our day and age many of us don’t really know God.
[51:31]Then he is not theologician. He is theosophist.
[51:36]We know about God, but we do not know God. I would agree.
[51:43]Then that is theosophist. Theosophists, they are thinking
[51:48]There is something superior. But who is that superior, they are searching out.
[51:55]The same thing: a boy, he knows, “I have a father,” but “Who is my father?
[52:04]That I do not know.” Oh, that, you have to ask your mother. That’s all.“
[52:08]Alone he cannot understand.
[52:12]So our proposition is that if you do not know God and here is God, Krsna,
[52:22]why don’t you accept Him?
[52:25]You do not know first of all.
[52:28]And if I present, “Here is God,” then why don’t you accept?
[52:35]What is the answer?
[52:42]We are presenting God, “Here is God.”
[52:46]I suppose one of the difficulties for certainly many in the older generation
[52:51]is that we follow certain patterns of life and the… It is difficult to change.
[53:05]This is the great problem.
[53:07]Then you are not serious about God. Then you are not serious.
[53:11]Therefore Krsna said, sarva-dharman parityaja mam ekam saranam:
[53:14]“You have to give up.”
[53:17]Because if you are not prepared to give up, then you cannot accept God.
[53:30]I think you’re being a little unfair to Dr. Crossley.
[53:34]I think what you say is true, that the most important thing we can do
[53:42]is to seek and know God, but I don’t think it’s right to say that
[53:48]it’s a bad thing to study how other people or how man has…
[53:54]No, I don’t say bad thing.
[53:56]I say if you are serious about God, now, here is God.
[54:00]That’s what a university in part is for,
[54:03]to study about how people have thought on different matters.
[54:08]No, that’s all right. I have already said. If you are seeking after something,
[54:11]if you get that something, why don’t you accept it?
[54:23]Do you believe that Christ said that Krsna was his father?
[54:28]The name may be different. Just like in our country we say this flower something.
[54:34]You say something, something. But the subject matter must be the same.
[54:42]Name is not… You can say in a different way, as you understand.
[54:50]But God is one. God cannot be two. You may give Him different names.
[54:59]That is different thing. But God is one. God cannot be two.
