Reporter: What do you try and teach, sir?
Prabhupada: I am trying to teach what you have forgotten.
Devotees: Haribol! Hare Krsna! (laughter)
Reporter: Which is what?
Prabhupada: That is God. Some of you are saying there is no God, some of you are saying God is dead, and some of you are saying God is impersonal or void. These are all nonsense. I want to teach all these nonsense that there is God. That is my mission. Any nonsense can come to me, I shall prove that there is God. That is my Krsna consciousness movement. It is a challenge to the atheistic people. There is God. As we are sitting here face to face, you can see God face to face. If you are sincere and if you are serious, that is possible. Unfortunately, we are trying to forget God; therefore we are embracing so many miseries of life. So I am simply preaching that you have Krsna consciousness and be happy. Don't be swayed away by these nonsense waves of maya, or illusion. That is my request.
