Satsvarūpa: They're especially upset when they see a young man join Hare Kṛṣṇa and give up—give up his career, give up going to the university.
Satsvarūpa: This is very destructive, they say . . .
Satsvarūpa: . . . that he's giving all his possessions to the Society, giving up his career or job and his plans for the future. And then they want to stop us.
Bhāgavata: Even in India.
Prabhupāda: Everywhere. Why you say, speak India or in England? The human intelligence is the same. There is no change. They have made like this, "East," "West" and "England," and . . . the psychology is the same. The ass is the same. The camel is the same. The dog is the same. We are talking of these dogs. Do you think that in Europe the dog is different from Indian dog? (laughs) They have created another problem. But we take, "You are all dogs. Either you be Indian or England or German, you are, after all, after dog. Your mentality is dog." They have created that "Indian dog is better than the English dog" or "English dog is better than German." What is better? It is dog. You are doglike, and hankering after some job in America and amongst Europeans. The Indians are all doing that, the same education. Recently, for a post of five hundred men there were three lakhs of applications. This is education. And you'll find uneducated Indian, still he's independent. You will find in Calcutta, especially we have seen.
Gurukṛpā: In the market.
Prabhupāda: Yes. In the morning they'll purchase a bag of potato. Say he invests twenty rupees. Nowadays he'll sit down in a corner and make two rupees' profit. He invests twenty rupees, and he gets twenty-two. He's satisfied, poor man. Then in the, say, ten to twelve he'll purchase some dāl. He'll go home to home. He'll make another two rupees' profit. In the evening he'll take some kerosene oil, and he'll sell. Evening everyone requires kerosene oil. He'll make another two rupees. So he's illiterate. He makes six rupees' profit, five rupees' profit, and if he can, ten rupees' profit. And takes some channa chor, some peanuts, sit down. In this way he's independently earning five to ten rupees. And educated? He's just like dog—"Give me job"—and unemployed, and eating at the cost of father or welfare activities, welfare department, and moving like dog. Just see practically. The uneducated, he's earning because he knows that, "If I go with application, what education I have got? Nobody will like me." He's hopeless in that way. "So let me try in my own way." And he's earning ten rupees. And the other man, he's starving and taking help from the government, eating at the cost of father. This is education. Otherwise he is becoming hippie. Is that education? And in the Vedic system—education for the brahmin: how to learn to be truthful, how to control senses, how to become educated in Vedic knowledge. It is for brāhmaṇa. Bās, education; a few men selected. Kṣatriya, he has to learn how to fight, "Go. Fight. Go in the forest and kill animals and lie, try again, learn how to kill." Education. Vaiśya—"Go to the field. See how the plow is moved, how to give protection to the . . ." Finish education. And śūdra, he has to work under the order of the master. Master says, "Do this," he'll do it. So where is education required, high education, university degrees? And the government is maintaining big, big building, big, big professor, and the professor is . . . what is that? You told me? Gargamuni was telling.
