Prabhupāda: That's all right, but others accept it.
Yaśomatīnandana: Yes, the vast people do accept.
Prabhupāda: Vedavyāsa is accepted by Śaṅkarācārya. Vyāsadeva. Vyāsa-guru.
Yaśomatīnandana: They think that some Vaiṣṇava wrote it and put the name of Vedavyāsa. They are so demoniac.
Prabhupāda: Yes, they say like that. Then other ācāryas, they are also fools?
Yaśomatīnandana: I think they place all the other ācāryas after Śaṅkarācārya.
Prabhupāda: ...ācāryas. But their paramparā system is very old. (aside:) Hare Kṛṣṇa. (break) ...Bhagavad-gītā? No.
Yaśomatīnandana: They don't accept it as... They do not accept Gītā as spoken by some person Kṛṣṇa five thousand years ago on the battlefield.
Prabhupāda: Anyway, do they accept the authority of Bhagavad-gītā or not?
Yaśomatīnandana: They say it's a very nice book of knowledge. They don't want to pursue spiritual life.
Prabhupāda: Then why they become authority?
Yaśomatīnandana: Yes, that is their rascaldom.
Prabhupāda: If they do not accept authority, why they become authority? Who will accept them? If everything is depending on mental speculation, then why they should be accepted as authority?
Yaśomatīnandana: That they cannot answer. Only insincere people, foolish people, they are misled by them. Otherwise I don't think anybody even knows their philosophy. Everyone knows your philosophy because they see your disciples, and no one goes to read their books. Mostly I see in their books, "First edition, copies two thousand," "three thousand," something like that. And you never see a second edition.

Prabhupāda: ...Bhakti-rasāmṛta-sindhu for the last twelve years he was lying idle, and this time he went, and people appreciated so much he was giving delete. He is advertising like that.
