I was talking with one professor, Mr. Kotovsky, in Moscow. He is in charge of a big department. He said: "Swāmijī, after finishing this body, everything is finished. There is nothing more." Just see. And he is a great professor. He has no knowledge that after finishing this body there is another body. We are going to accept another body, not that after death, everything is finished. This conception is going on very strong, but this is a great mistake.
That is being explained here by Kṛṣṇa, dehino 'smin yathā dehe kaumāraṁ yauvanaṁ jarā tathā dehāntara-prāptir (BG 2.13). This is the first state to understand God. What is the nature of God? This is the first state, that I am spirit soul, part and parcel of God. If I study myself as sample of God, a little sample of God, then you can understand God. Just like you take a drop of Pacific Ocean water, and you chemically analyze the constituents of that drop of water, then you can understand what is the constituent ingredients in the Pacific Ocean. You can understand.
The difference is, as I have already explained, God and we, individual soul, are of the same quality. The quality is not different. Just like we have got creative power, God has got also creative power, but by your creative power you can manufacture a big airplane or a Sputnik to fly in the sky, but God's creative power, millions and trillions of planets are floating in the sky. Just like the sun.
You see every day, the sun is there in the sky, and it is lying in one corner of the sky, but this one planet itself is fourteen hundred thousand bigger than this planet. This planet is only a teeny, small planet in consideration of other planets. So we cannot know even what are there in this planet. So many things are unknown. So all these planets are floating. That's a fact.
So that is the difference between God and me. I can create a small aeroplane, and I can take the credit that, "Our science is so much advanced that we don't care for God." No, you cannot do, sir. You cannot manufacture a planet. That is not in your power. Similarly, there are so many things. You have creative power, God has got creative power, but your creation and God's creation there is vast difference.
