Why this ordinary question to be repeatedly made and I answer? A waste of time. This is a serious movement. One should be responsible men, leaders of the society. If you want to take some benefit out of this movement, they should question.


Prabhupāda: They make radio, television, they ask the same question. They do not know what question they can ask. The real . . . it is meant for the philosophy of life, but they, they do not know.

Ātreya Ṛṣi: Yes.

Prabhupāda: So why this ordinary question to be repeatedly made and I answer it? A waste of time. This is a serious movement. One should be responsible men, leaders of the society. If you want to take some benefit out of this movement, they should question.

Ātreya Ṛṣi: Yes.

Prabhupāda: And they should . . . if it is nice, they should take it. Then it will be benefit.

Ātreya Ṛṣi: Yes.

Prabhupāda: Simply go on questioning, they'll never do it, never accept it.

Ātreya Ṛṣi: Yes.

Prabhupāda: You see? That will not be effective. Simply a waste of time.

Ātreya Ṛṣi: Yes.

Prabhupāda: Here is a formula, Kṛṣṇa consciousness. They actually see how we are changing the character.

Ātreya Ṛṣi: Yes, Śrīla Prabhupāda.

Prabhupāda: So the leaders of the society, they should be serious, will adopt this—in the educational system, in their private life. In that way they shall ask some question, then it will benefit. Otherwise it will be simply a show.

Ātreya Ṛṣi: Jaya, Prabhupāda. I understand. I understand.
