Prabhupāda: Give little, a small pot.
Dr. Sharma: Prabhupāda, you have given such beautiful temples, so many devotees, now to have a point of jump so that all India and all the world and other people can join in this. Your answers today were very penetrating. That can help a lot, saying that people can work outside but still be devotees, and if they can chant, if they can devote work, and if they can submit all the fruits of their actions, if this can be somehow made available, this particular...
Prabhupāda: It is available.
Dr. Sharma: Yes, but these few questions only, the answers, that these are from you and these are there, then it will be a point of jump in the movement. It will be a big jump in the movement. And what can we do...?
Prabhupāda: So come and join us and help us.
Dr. Sharma: I would be most honored to do it, and I am trying from the outside.
Prabhupāda: No, you are in Washington?
Dr. Sharma: Yes, I am in Washington.
Prabhupāda: So organize here. Talk with the scientists and everyone here.
Dr. Sharma: I come two or three times a week for the temple, and I will be coming more.
Dr. Sharma: Your idea of the Institute is possibly the most magnificent idea, because that will bring all the scientists...
Prabhupāda: Yes, actually it is. At least those who are Indians, let them join. It is Indian culture.
Dr. Sharma: Yes, it is such a wonderful thing. I was a hard-core Vedāntist before I came, and I was not satisfied. I think that by chanting one really changes. Yes.
Prabhupāda: Oh, yes.
Dr. Sharma: I bring all the Indian people I can, because I know, I am a scientist, I still believe in God.
Prabhupāda: What is your subject matter?
Dr. Sharma: I have four doctorates in four different areas.
Dr. Sharma: I have a Ph.D. in chemistry, a Ph.D. in biochemistry, a Doctor of Science in clinical endocrinology. I have a Fellow of the Royal Institute of Chemistry of London, which is a higher Ph.D. I am in computer information and control engineering...
Prabhupāda: Royal College of... That... What is is called?
Dr. Sharma: Royal Institute of Chemistry, London. And I have a law degree. And I am in computer information and control engineering.
Prabhupāda: (laughing) You are such a big man. Kindly join us and help us.
Dr. Sharma: I would be most honored, and I'm slowing trying to work it out in such a way that I can...
Prabhupāda: No, the formula is all given in this Bhagavad-gītā.
Dr. Sharma: I find your Bhagavad-gītā most illuminating as compared to other Gītās I have read, the translations.
Prabhupāda: We are presenting Bhagavad-gītā as it is, that's all.
Dr. Sharma: How can we best serve the movement? By joining it? I have joined it in a...
Prabhupāda: Prāṇair arthair dhiyā vācaiḥ: "By life, by money, by intelligence, by words." Either four or three or two, at least one. Then it will be all right.
Dr. Sharma: I'll be writing...
Dr. Sharma: ...about the movement in scientific journals.
Dr. Sharma: That I'll be writing.
Dr. Sharma: And I'll be writing...
Prabhupāda: That is dhiyā.
Dr. Sharma: And I'll be writing...
Dr. Sharma: I'll also be writing in scientific way, books about it.
Prabhupāda: You write in our... We are going to publish one magazine.
Dr. Sharma: 'Cause I think the movement is very scientific.
Prabhupāda: Yes. (aside) No, call Svarūpa Dāmodara.
Dr. Sharma: I shall write in books and give it to the editors here to use it the way they best can. I normally publish... I only last month got a medical prize, a large prize, for medicine. My name is known internationally, medical journals. So I'll submit it to the Book Trust.
Prabhupāda: So, you are qualified medical man?
Dr. Sharma: No, I am only in research. I am not qualified to practice medicine, but in clinical medical practice and clinical journals I am qualified. I used to be...
Prabhupāda: From chemical point.
Dr. Sharma: No, from medicine point.
Dr. Sharma: From medicine point. In physics and mathematics I'll write in those ways, and I'll submit it and let them use it the way they feel like it. Previously I was with the āśrama.
Prabhupāda: Which āśrama?
Dr. Sharma: Kohasat(?)
Dr. Sharma: And before that with the Swami Ram Tirtha Mission in New York. I was a follower of Vivekananda.
Dr. Sharma: And at the Belior Math in Belior Math Daksinesvara in Calcutta. But I find that by really chanting... I was crying to God, literally, at night, that "Find me the path again," and then I found your movement. And I find it, yes, it does make a difference. I was also amazed that evening when the first two days ago I was thinking I will ask you five ślokas of Gītā to give me. Out of that, you discussed four. And I was meditating on Hardwar, where I was born. All the time your face was appearing behind Ganges, and it was very strange phenomena. I do not know when I will be fortunate enough to have your darśana again, but in the meantime, I'm slowly... I feel that this movement you have done supernatural thing. Now, somehow...
Prabhupāda: That's a great certificate, because it is coming from you.
Dr. Sharma: It's a supernatural thing. I do not believe that it is natural. It is in the world and eternal. I have been here... To be able to convert these people, to be able to make devotees, is unnatural.
Prabhupāda: Where is Svarūpa Dāmodara?
