1976 Conversations and Morning Walks

The situation is very good, good prospect. I want that self-independent here, as far as possible. But you have got enough materials. With woods you can make cottages. Then land becomes clear, then utilize it.
Room Conversation -- August 2, 1976, New Mayapur (French farm):

Harikesa: Should I cook if I still have this fever tomorrow?

Prabhupada: Eh?

Harikesa: Right now I have a fever.

Prabhupada: No, don't cook.

Harikesa: So if I have a fever I shouldn't cook for you? It's unhealthy for you? It won't bother me so much, but if it's unhealthy for you...

Prabhupada: No, no, I have no objection. But if you have got fever, why shall you? There are so many others. They can...

Harikesa: I cannot tolerate being sick any more.

Prabhupada: The body means sickness. The body itself is sickness.

Harikesa: In illusion I think I come back here, I get healthy. In illusion I think if I leave India and come here I will get healthy. But I come here I also get sick. I go there I also get sick. (laughs) You seem to be much better now.

Prabhupada: Yes, little better. Hare Krsna. (break) ...thinking of how to utilize the whole land. The situation is very good, good prospect. I want that self-independent here, as far as possible. But you have got enough materials. With woods you can make cottages. Then land becomes clear, then utilize it.

Bhagavan: Cows.

Prabhupada: Cows, so many things. Free from all anxieties, chant Hare Krsna. Life is meant for simply chanting. This should be the motto. But because we have got this body, we have to maintain it. That much. Otherwise, we have no ambition to become a very big man in this material world, enjoy it. This is all false, useless. He'll become a big man, and one day death comes and kicks him out. So these are all false attempts. It has no meaning. The meaningful life is, so long we live, become fully Krsna conscious. And tyaktva deham punar janma naiti mam eti (BG 4.9). That is wanted. Give facility to the people. Here is very nice arrangement. Now make plan how to utilize. You have got enough land. You can utilize for supplying the necessities of life.

Bhagavan: It's a very wonderful place.

Prabhupada: Yes. We can get many wonderful places like this all over the world. But they have not been taught how to utilize them.

Bhagavan: But I think in one year they have done nicely. They have built a greenhouse and planted all the cultivated land.

Prabhupada: No, they are working hard, there is no doubt about it.

Bhagavan: And the temple also, Deity worship and everything.

Prabhupada: Oh, yes, things are going nicely. There is no doubt about it. And children should be given that much education -- to read and write and chant Hare Krsna.
