1. Vivekananda spoiled the whole Indian culture

    Prabhupada: Dogs, hogs, camels and asses; the majority are like these animals, and if their vote is many, then you are a big dog, samstutah purusah pasuh  [SB 2.3.19]. Therefore their election is another big animal, president. Election by these cats, dogs, hogs, camels means another big animal. So what we can expect from the animal? [chants japa] Vivekananda was telling, in religion everyone has his own opinion: yato mat tato patha. Was it not?

    Svarupa Damodara: Swami Vivekananda?

    Prabhupada: Yes.

    Devotee: "As many paths, as many ways."

    Prabhupada: Yes. As many paths [indistinct]. But Krsna does not say that. Krsna says, mam ekam: "Only surrender unto Me." He never says. But he became more than Krsna, this rascal Vivekananda. That is the difficulty. India is spoiled with this Vivekananda especially. This man spoiled the whole Indian culture.
