Guest (1): . . . for the common man, for the downtrodden, for the poor?
Prabhupāda: Yes, they can chant Hare Kṛṣṇa, and they will understand.
Guest (1): That should be some motivation . . .
Prabhupāda: Just like if you are hungry, if you get some real food, you'll understand. Example is these American, European boys. They are simply chanting Hare Kṛṣṇa, and you see how they are advanced.
Guest (1): How come that in this country they . . .?
Prabhupāda: Immediately come. But you won't take.
Guest (1): I see.
Prabhupāda: That is your fault. You have manufactured your own way of life. Otherwise, Hare Kṛṣṇa is India's gift.
Guest (1): It's not much.
Prabhupāda: Yes. But you won't take it. He'll speak so many nonsense; he'll never speak Hare Kṛṣṇa. That is misfortune.
Guest (2): What are the aims of the Indian society? Although it's given birth to so much, it still doesn't take it as success. What is the weakness in the Indian society that they don't . . .
Prabhupāda: Because they have got bad leaders, the rascal leaders. Just like see. Mahatma Gandhi, he misled. But he did not know how to lead. And what to speak of others. They do not know. I saw this Vinoba Bhave, he does not know anything. He has become leader. I saw in his āśrama about one dozen women, they are reciting Bhagavad-gītā. That's all. And for the last forty years he's working on Bhagavad-gītā, and the result is some forty women is reciting Bhagavad-gītā. So this is the result. So what they will do? They do not know how to lead. And he has written one book on Bhagavad-gītā, but he has become a great leader. And that is also not according to Bhagavad-gītā. This is going on. This is going on.
