India's glory

    Posted on June 28, 2017

Prabhupada: Especially this land India is specially meant for God realization. By the birth, one is Krsna conscious, or God conscious. Still in these days, whenever... You have seen in Hyderabad. Although your conference was going on, still, at least five thousand men were attracted to hear me. [guest laughs] And I was speaking the "dry" subject of Krsna. So India is so fortunate. They are still ready to assimilate the instruction of Krsna. The land is so fortunate. So we must give them the chance. That is our duty. That is government's duty. That is teacher's duty. That is father's duty. That is explained in Srimad-Bhagavata.

So any good thinker, leaders, they should do something so the India's glories... Now these people [Westerners], they are chanting Hare Krsna. That is India's glory, because we haven't got to give them anything. We are hundred years back always. When they manufacture jet plane, we manufacture sewing machine. Or cycle.

Indian man (1): But we have great parampara of varnasrama-dharma.

Prabhupada: So we can give them these things, that spiritual emancipation, and they are appreciating. So if we make ourself in India a nice program — already they are eager to take — then they will take more and more. And that will glorify India's prestige.
