Guest (2): Jñānena . . . (indistinct) . . . not . . .
Prabhupāda: No, no. I mean to say, take our present position. You were born, I am born, he is born, everyone. Are we not born foolish? What do you think?
Haṁsadūta: The only sense is cry . . .
Prabhupāda: So many ways we do not know. There is some trouble, I am crying, child is crying, and the mother knows that, "He is suffering. Give . . ." seeking the help of the mother. Then we are going to school. The father is training, mother is training. Are you not born foolish? In the Bhāgavata says, abodha-jātaḥ: "born foolish." Everyone is born rascal. So if he does not take help from the authorities, how he can make progress? You have become lawyer by sitting at home?
Guest (2): No, no. I take tests for many time. I look at books and I take test for one year, twelve, fourteen hours.
Prabhupāda: That is the process. So how can you deny to understand the supreme science—you can do it independently? No, that is not possible. Therefore it is the verb, the form, gacchet. It is called vidhiliṅ. You know Sanskrit? Yes. This form of verb is . . . perhaps you also know: gacchet, kuryāt, gadyat. These are vidhilin. Vidhiliṅ means that is compulsory. Is it not?
Prabhupāda: He knows Sanskrit very well. Compulsory. Therefore it is said gacchet, compulsory. Tad-vijñānārtham . . . tat, the transcendental knowledge; vijñāna, that is science. Tad-vijñānārthaṁ sa gurum eva niścayate (MU 1.2.12). Eva is niścayate. Eva means "certainly." And again gacchet, "must go." Now, just like to be educated one must be admitted in a school. Must be. Now, what kind of school he has to select, that is another thing, but he must. That's a fact. Similarly, you have to accept a guru.
