Prabhupāda: What is that?
Brahmānanda: He says Indian culture has always taught that light comes from many lamps.
Interviewer (4): That you're preaching... (indistinct—loud static) from the Gītā.
Prabhupāda: Yes. That is the supreme light. There are degrees of light. There is sunlight, and there is this light. You cannot compare this light with sun. (laughter) Light comes from everywhere, but that does not mean the sunlight and this light is the same.
Interviewer (4): No, what I...
Prabhupāda: First of all you understand this. You have questioned about the light. First of all you understand there are degrees of light. You cannot say this light and the sunlight is the same.
Interviewer (4): By this, you mean that those who adapt to the light by the teachings coming from the Koran or from the Bible is lesser light than from the Gītā?
Prabhupāda: That is your... That is your business to study. But we give you the idea that light comes from everywhere. There is one glowworm. That light also light, and the sunlight is also light. You cannot think that the glowworm's light and the sunlight is the same. Now it is your business to see which is glowworm light and which is sunlight. That is your business.
Interviewer (6) (Indian man): It has been adequately argued, (indistinct) in Third World countries, that your movement is under the wing of a certain (indistinct) imperialist countries. Do you...?
Brahmānanda: He said that there is some allegation that our movement is connected with certain imperialistic countries.
Prabhupāda: Let them say all nonsense. What can I do? Every nonsense will speak something nonsense. How can I check it? There are so many nonsenses; therefore we are trying to make all these nonsense into human beings. That is our program. So long he is a nonsense, he will go on speaking nonsense. What can I do?
Interviewer (4): Swāmījī, one thing I want to know. This śloka, from where you have got it, this śloka, lāvaṇyaṁ keśa-dhāraṇam? This śloka, lāvaṇyaṁ keśa-dhāraṇam.
Prabhupāda: Yes. It is in the third chapter of Twelfth Canto of Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam. (aside:) Have you got all the Bhāgavatas, Twelfth Canto?
Puṣṭa Kṛṣṇa: We don't have it with us.
Prabhupāda: So you can note it.
