1973 Conversations and Morning Walks

By association. By association. Therefore this society. We are giving chance. You were not eager four years ago. Now why you are eager? You come to the Society and become eager, automatically.
Morning Walk -- December 21, 1973, Los Angeles:

Jayatīrtha: If one isn't eager, how can he become eager, Śrīla Prabhupāda?

Prabhupāda: By association. By association. Therefore this society. We are giving chance. You were not eager four years ago. Now why you are eager? You come to the Society and become eager, automatically. Satāṁ prasaṅgān mama vīrya-saṁvido bhavanti hṛt-karṇa-rasāyanāḥ kathāḥ (SB 3.25.25). By sat-saṅga, it becomes very pleasing to the ear and to the heart. And if you little try, then it becomes successful. But if it is so-called sat-saṅga, professional, hired Bhāgavata-reader, then it will... Thousand, thousand years will no, not effect.

Guest (1): Then it is merchandising.

Prabhupāda: Merchandising. That is the... (Hindi) Each verse of Bhāgavata is volumes of philosophy, but neither they know it, neither they explain it. The Bhāgavata-patha means rāsa-līlā. That's all.

Guest (1): Yes. that is what Bhāgavata has been...

Prabhupāda: What they will understand, rāsa-līlā?

Guest (1): It has been misrepresented.

Prabhupāda: Misrepresented. They will think that it is ordinary, just like young boy, young girls, they mix together.

Guest (1): And that rāsa-līlā is also not taken in that moral sense. It is more of a sex exploitation. That is how they...

Prabhupāda: No. Why one should go to the rāsa-līlā? It is in the Tenth Canto. And in the thirty-fifth chapter. So what is the purpose?

Guest (1): No. That is being misrepresented. That has also been taken as an enjoyment.

Prabhupāda: Yes.

Guest (1): It has been taken more as sense gratification.

Prabhupāda: Yes. Harer nāma harer nāma harer nāma eva kevalam (CC Adi 17.21). So Karandhara Prabhu, this time is nice.

Karandhara: Yes, Prabhupāda.

Prabhupāda: We get full sunshine. Yes.
