If you have got imperfect eyes, what you can see? First of all you admit that you have got imperfect eyes. Then what you can see with your imperfect eyes? If you are a blind man, what is the use of telling, "I do not see"? You are blind man, what you can see? First of all you admit that you are blind man, then talk of seeing.


Prabhupāda: Therefore if you have got imperfect eyes, what you can see? First of all you admit that you have got imperfect eyes. Then what you can see with your imperfect eyes? If you are a blind man, what is the use of telling, "I do not see"? You are blind man, what you can see? First of all you admit that you are blind man, then talk of seeing. Therefore Vedic literature . . . Śāstra-cakṣusā. You should see through śāstra, not your these blind eyes. Śāstra says, "There is Kṛṣṇa, He is doing like that, cintāmaṇi-prakara-sadmasu kalpa-vṛk . . ." You should see like that. What you see with your eyes? Why you are so proud of your eyes? Blind eyes. That is submission. Do you see who is your father? Why do you accept by the recommendation of the mother that "He is your father." Do you see who is your father? Then what is the use of telling, "I want to see"? What you can see? You have to take the authority of the mother. Mother says, "Here is your father," that's all. You cannot say, "I have not seen that he is my father." Can you say? So there is no value of this statement, "I do not see" or "We cannot see."
