Haṁsadūta: She says that . . . she says she wants to know if you think it would be worthwhile for her to write a book, something similar to the one that was written in America. It was called The Strange World of the Hare Krishna People. You've heard of it?
Prabhupāda: Hmm. Hmm.
Haṁsadūta: But she says serious, not in the way it was written by her, because she is a journalist, and this is her natural inclination, and she has been here now since the beginning, and she is noting everything. So it is her natural tendency. Whether you think it is worthwhile for her to write a little book for the public?
Prabhupāda: It is . . . it will be great service, provided you write nicely the right things.
Girl: To help you?
Prabhupāda: Yes. People are in ignorance, ninety-nine percent.
Prabhupāda: Yes. Entire, whole world. They are going on. They are fighting on this bodily concept of life. So, apart from fighting . . . of course, you cannot stop fighting. But at least a section of men must be in right knowledge. So what I say, that in the Western countries, they, even the very high, topmost educationists, they also do not believe that there is life after death. Is it not? Am I right or not?
Prabhupāda: So just see how much ignorance is prevailing. So if you can dissipate this ignorance, darkness . . .
Haṁsadūta: So that . . . she says, yes, if one thinks in this way, then life has no sense, that there's no sense to it, if one does not believe in a life beyond this life. Then it is senseless.
