Prabhupāda: You know who is demon? You know who is demon? Asura-kula-nāśana, you know who is demon? Who is that? Who is demon?
Asura-kula-nāśana: Oh, karmīs. (laughter)
Prabhupāda: No, not only karmīs; others also. So-called scientist.
Devotees: Jaya! Haribol!
Prabhupāda: Māyayāpahṛta-jñānā (BG 7.15). Anyone who is posing himself as very much advanced in education but has no knowledge in Kṛṣṇa, he is also a demon.
Svarūpa Dāmodara: Who is not a devotee of Kṛṣṇa . . .
Svarūpa Dāmodara: . . . he's a demon.
Prabhupāda: Yes. Demon means he is not a devotee. That is demon. There are two kinds of persons—one demon, and one demigod. Those who are devotees, they are demigods, and those who are not devotees, they are demons.

Asura. Asura means just the opposite number of devotees. That's all. This is the general definition of demons: opposite number. So anyone who is against Kṛṣṇa consciousness, he is a demon. That's all. This is general.
