Prabhupada : …niharam iva bha… It is called nihara. As long, as soon as the sun becomes strong, immediately, everything finished. Just see. This… What is called fog, or…?
Jayapataka: Just like when you came to the West, Prabhupada, you cleared away the fog.
Prabhupada: At least, I tried for that. Whatever is done it is done by Krishna . [break] …keeps intelligent to the sincere servant. Otherwise, everything is done by Krishna . So if you, one is sincere to Krishna , he will act everything rightly because the direction is… Buddhi yoga dadami tam. The perfect direction is there. I do not know why people denies to take direction from Krishna . He gets perfect direction. But he does not like to take. What is this tree?
Jayapataka: The imli, I think.
Jayapataka: Not imli? They call that…
Prabhupada: No, no, not imli. Imli’s different. This way, up to that river? [break] …vasudeva-parayana. Vasudeva-parayana, means Krishna conscious person, they solve all questions by one thing, Krishna consciousness. Exactly like the sun solves all the problems of this nihara, foss. It is called foss?
Prabhupada: Niharam iva bhaskara. Let the scientists do it in their scientific way, drive away the fog. Is there any process? Eh? In the ocean, when there is fog like this, they have to stop all the ships and cry, (makes sound like fog horn:) onnnh, onnnh, so that they may not collide. I have seen it when I was coming, going to USA. Where is Mohanananda? He is here? No. Mohanananda? Hare Krishna .
The difference between other camps and our: they call these men from their daily, I mean to say, life, householder’s life, for this purpose for a week or so, but they are not dedicated. Here, in our camp, all our people are dedicated to the cause. That is the difference. So they cannot surpass your activities.
Jayapataka: Because you are dedicated, Srila Prabhupada.
Prabhupada: Yes, everyone should be dedicated, I or you. Does not… That is the success of life. Dedicate your life for Krishna . That is the perfection. Even there are some faults, even dedicated life is noble life. Maybe, due to our past habits, we may commit some faulty action, but that dedicated life is sublime. Api cet suduracaro bhajate mam ananya-bhak, sadhur eva sa mantavyau [Bg. 9.30].
