"Don't Speculate--Hear!"

Atlanta, March 1, 1975


Take a test

Prabhupada: ...of Europe and America, everywhere. You know who are mudhas?

Tripurari: Yes Srila Prabhupada.

Prabhupada: Who?

Tripurari: Fools and rascals who won't take your books. Sometimes we convince them that the philosophy is very nice, and they agree when we use Lord Krsna's words, dehino 'smin yatha dehe [Bg. 2.13], and they say "Yes, I can understand that, but I don't need your book," or "I would never read it." We say, "Well, no. Take it."

Prabhupada: (chuckles) You ask them, "So you want to remain mudha?"

Tripurari: We say, "No, take it home, and some day you will read it." They think they can find out on their own.

Prabhupada: That is foolishness. They cannot. Mam eva ya prapadyante mayam etam taranti te.

Tripurari: Sometimes they will agree to everything we say, but they will not give a donation. They trust more the man on the T.V.

Prabhupada: This is lake?

Devotee: Yes.

Balavanta: In the Srimad-Bhagavatam you say that the Rahu planet is visible on the full moon night? The Rahu planet?

Prabhupada: No, when there is eclipse.

Balavanta: Oh, eclipse.

Prabhupada: Eclipse means Rahu planet comes in front. (Apparently reads sign:) "No smoking?"

Srutakirti: "No swimming."

Prabhupada: Oh. Who is going to swim now? (laughter) [break]

Tripurari: Once Balavanta was very sick when he was dealing with the politicians, and I heard that you said it was because he..., by touching them and associating with them, he accepted some of their sinful reactions.

Prabhupada: (chuckles) I did not say. (laughter)

Tripurari: No?

Prabhupada: But it may be.

Tripurari: So I was wondering. Sometimes our men on sankirtana, they are shaking hands...

Prabhupada: But you are sankirtana. You cannot be infected. [break] ...party is infected, then preaching will stop. If doctor is infected, then treatment will stop. Doctor is never infected. They have good precautions. Similarly, when you are engaged in sankirtana, maya cannot touch. Mayam etam taranti te. [break]

Tripurari: ...disciples and you accept our karma also. Is that correct?

Prabhupada: Hmm.

Tripurari: That is manifest sometimes in disease on your body?

Prabhupada: Yes.

Tripurari: So our men also are going out and preaching...

Prabhupada: The overloaded.

Dhira-krsna: When we take your books on the library party to the professors at the universities... (fades out)

Srutakirti: This way? Srila Prabhupada, Srila Prabhupada... [break]

Prabhupada: I am surprised how I have written so many, what to speak of them? (laughter) It is all Krsna's mercy.

Dhira-Krsna: One professor the other day was trying to convince one of our boys that you were coming in the disciplic succession and were authorized to translate all these books.

Prabhupada: Yes, that is right.

Dhira-Krsna: Because he was dressed and he didn't know that he was your disciple, so he was saying, "Bhaktivedanta Swami, he is coming in a disciplic line straight from Krsna. That's why he can speak on all these books."

Prabhupada: Yes, that is a fact. That authority I have got. That's a fact. Yasya deve para bhaktir yatha deve tatha gurau, tasyaite kathita hy arthah prakasante [SU 6.23]. They become manifest, all the meanings of the Vedic literature. Yasya deve para bhaktih. (aside:) Don't come very near. [break] ...explaining last evening. Don't speculate, hear. That is the qualification. All others, they are simply speculating. How long their energy will go on, limited energy? How speculating will help them? It is not possible. It is condemned. Athapi te deva,

(athapi) te deva padambuja-

dvaya-prasada-lesanugrhita eva hi

janati tattvam na canya

eko 'pi ciram vicinvan

 [SB 10.14.29]

Ciram vicinvan, speculating for millions of years, one cannot understand.

athapi te deva padambuja-

dvaya-prasada-lesanugrhita eva hi

"One who has received a little mercy of the lotus feet of the Lord, he can understand the truth. Others, even speculating for millions of years, they cannot understand anything." The speculation business is useless in spiritual advance. It may help Darwin to come to the conclusion that man is born from monkey. Because he is from monkey, he thinks others also from monkey. He has admitted that whatever he has given, it is simply a speculation. He has admitted. And all others also speculating. They are trying to manufacture life from chemicals, but they do not know that life is never manufactured. It is already there. Just like this grass is coming. The life is already there. In favorable circumstances it comes out. Udbhija. This is called udbhija. Similarly fermentation. Just like the cockroaches come out... (end)
