Guru kṛpā: How is the moon behind the sun?
Prabhupāda: Not behind, above.
Guru kṛpā: It is a bigger planet?
Guru kṛpā: In other words, to elevate oneself to the moon planet, that is harder than going to the sun planet.
Prabhupāda: That is God's wish. "You can go up on Me? What is this?" Their calculation is that moon is nearer, is it not?
Guru kṛpā:. Yes.
Prabhupāda: But not moon is nearer; sun is nearer. And above, in the proportion, 1,600,000 miles, above moon there is Mercury, Mars, in this way, Venus. It is not so easy.
Śrutakīrti: The planets are not orbiting the sun.
Prabhupāda: No, no. They have got their different orbits.
Guru kṛpā:. This is real science, to know these facts.
Guru kṛpā: So how can you prove that?
Prabhupāda: Vedic literature. Śruti-pramāṇam. Śruti means Vedas.
