Responsibility is that you have got this human form of life - realize God. This is your responsibility. Otherwise you are finished. Three words: "You have got this human form of life. Your only responsibility is to understand God. This is your responsibility." That is Vedic culture.

Prabhupada: Five thousand years ago. And Caitanya Mahaprabhu, five hundred years, how He accepted if it is finished? He is more than Caitanya Mahaprabhu, this rascal?

Yogesvara: Haribol.

Bhagavan: They are willing to take so many material risks, but they are not willing to try spiritual life.

Prabhupada: That is their fault. That is their foolishness. Mudho nabhijanati mam ebhyah param avyayam. Therefore they are called mudhas.

Yogesvara: How would we define the word responsibility in Krsna consciousness?

Prabhupada: Responsibility is that you have got this human form of life - realize God. This is your responsibility. Otherwise you are finished. Three words: "You have got this human form of life. Your only responsibility is to understand God. This is your responsibility." That is Vedic culture. For understanding God, many, many kings, many, many saints, they left everything and went to the forest to realize God. That is Vedic culture. Bharata Maharaja, under whose name India is called Bharata-varsa, he was the emperor of this planet, and at the age of twenty-four years he left everything to realize God. This is Vedic culture. Caitanya Mahaprabhu, His position was very, very nice, as a grhastha - a nice, beautiful wife, affectionate mother, good influence, brahmana family, learned scholar, everything first class. He left everything just to show us. He was God Himself, but to set the example, tyaktva sudustyaja-surepsita-rajya-laksmim (SB 11.5.34), He gave up a kingdom of fortune which is aspired by the demigods. Such a nice life, such a nice family, but He gave up. Tyaktva sudustyaja-surepsita-rajya-laksmim dharmistha arya.... Just to teach us the process of realizing God. This is Vedic system. (break) Somebody may not push. (break) ...water? No. Very deep?
