Bad condition, good condition, that is another thing. But you get it. You get it. Bad condition, good condition, that is my consideration, but things are available. Even the best apartment in India, that is not a good apartment for America. This is simply my mental concoction.

Prabhupāda: Bad condition, good condition, that is another thing. But you get it. You get it. Bad condition, good condition, that is my consideration, but things are available. Even the best apartment in India, that is not a good apartment for America. This is simply my mental concoction: "This is good; this is bad." I am thinking, "It is the best"; another may think, "Oh, it is lowest." The hog is thinking stool is very nice food, and I am thinking, "What is this nonsense thing?" So "best" and "good," it is simply mental concoction; it has no value. Just like these Western people, what is their ultimate standard of best nobody knows. Nobody knows. Just like hundred years before, there was no skyscraper building, and now even best skyscraper building is not best. So where is the standard of best and... It is all mental concoction.

Sudāmā: Just like in New York, at one time the Empire State Building was the biggest; now they have built two buildings that are the biggest in the world now.

Prabhupāda: Yes. Now someday it will be lowest.

Satsvarūpa: Yes, already in Chicago they're building one, a Sears building.

Bali-mardana: Bigger.

Prabhupāda: So what is the standard of best and lowest? There is no standard. This is called māyā.
