Srila Bhaktivedanta Svami Maharaja Prabhupada: …you should call learned. Arcye visnau sila-dhir gurusu nara-matir vaisnave jati-buddhih. You take it…
Srila Bhaktivedanta Svami Maharaja Prabhupada: …this quotation from Padma Purana, and distribute it by transcribing to all our devotees.
Nitai: That’s the verse that says that one is a resident of hell…
Srila Bhaktivedanta Svami Maharaja Prabhupada: Yes. Naraki.
Nitai: …if he considers the Deity…
Srila Bhaktivedanta Svami Maharaja Prabhupada: Naraki.
Srila Bhaktivedanta Svami Maharaja Prabhupada: Arcye visnau… [break] …when it will teach military art, with tilaka, soldiers will, “Hare Krsna, Hare Krsna, Hare Krsna…” (laughter) We want that. Marching with military band, “Hare Krsna.” You maintain this idea. Is it not good?
Hrdayananda: Yes, Prabhupada.
Srila Bhaktivedanta Svami Maharaja Prabhupada: When there will be military march of Krsna conscious soldiers. Anyone who does not believe in Krsna, “Blam!” (laughter) Yes. The same process as the Mohammedans did, with sword and Koran, we’ll have to do that. “Do you believe in Krsna or not?” “No, sir.” “Blam!” Finished. (laughter, Prabhupada laughs) What do you think, Madhudvisa Maharaja? Is that all right?
Srila Bhaktivedanta Svami Maharaja Prabhupada: (laughing) What these communists can do? We can do better than them. We can kill many communists like that. (laughter) Then it will be counteraction of communist movement. And you think like that. “Why you are sitting idly, no employment? Come on to the field! Take this plow! Take this bull. Go on working. Why you are sitting idly?” This is Krsna consciousness movement. Nobody should be allowed to sit down and sleep. They must find out some employment, either work as brahmana or as a ksatriya or as a vaisya. Why there should be unemployment? The same example. Just like I am, this body is working. The leg is working, hand is working, brain is working, belly is working. Why there should be unemployment? You just stop this unemployment, you will see the whole world is peaceful. There is no complaint. And they’ll very happily chant Hare Krsna. Hm? Nobody’s working in this field. They’re all drawn to the cities to work in the factory. Condemned civilization. That communist emblem, what is that?
