We say clearly, “If you are not Krsna conscious, you are rascal number one.” “No, I am M.A. Ph.D.” “Still, you are rascal.” That is our verdict. “We don’t care for your Ph.D. I know that you are a rascal because you do not know Krsna.” Just a few minutes before, one gentleman came to see me, and he advertised himself that “I have read Vedas, I have read the Puranas, I have
seen Dr. Radhakrishnan and so on, but I do not get peace of mind.” So I asked him, “You have studied so many literatures. Do you know who is God?” And the God who has created this, what is His name, what is the address — that he does not know. Yes. This is going on. Vimudhan. They are proud of education, proud of learning, advancement, everything, all right, complete. But real knowledge — “Do you know God?” — that he cannot explain. That he cannot explain. He will explain something hodgepodge. This is the disease. Therefore they are vimudhan.
