Prabhupada: Ladies and Gentlemen, the very learned erudite scholarly speaking by our Dr. Svarupa Damodara Singh must have created some impression in your mind, I am sure. So our, this Krsna consciousness movement, it is full of scientific knowledge. Jnanam te 'ham sa-vijnanam pravaksyamy anasuyave [Bg. 7.2]. Krsna said to Arjuna that "I am speaking to you knowledge, jnanam, sa-vijnanam, with scientific understanding." So "Why you are speaking to Me?" Jnanam te 'ham sa-vijnanam pravaksyamy anasuyave: "Because you are not envious. That is your qualification. You are very submissive student. Therefore I'll give you." So the dictation is coming from Krsna, as Dr. Svarupa Damodara says. That's a fact. Krsna says, sarvasya caham hrdi sannivisto mattah smrtir jnanam apohanam ca: [Bg. 15.15] "I am situated in everyone's heart."
hrd-dese 'rjuna tisthati
So we are creating our different position. Krsna is situated within your heart. Isvarah sarva-bhutanam hrd-dese [Bg. 18.61]. He is pointing out, "Find out, hrd-dese, within the heart." Therefore the yogis, they try to find out Paramatma. Dhyanavasthita tad-gatena manasa pasyanti yam yoginah [SB 12.13.1]. The yogis' business is to find out Krsna within the core of the heart. He is there. There are many places, explained.
So He is always prepared. Krsna comes for this purpose, to give us the real knowledge. Yada yada hi dharmasya glanir bhavati bharata tadatmanam srjamy aham [Bg. 4.7]. Why don't you take this opportunity? That is our lamentation. Especially in India, where Krsna personally came, where He gave..., left behind Him so valuable instruction, Bhagavad-gita, why you are refusing? Why you are misinterpreting and spoiling your life and spoiling others'? Don't do it. Take it very seriously. And as soon as we are engaged-tesam satata-yuktanam bhajatam priti-purvakam [Bg. 10.10]—as soon as we submit to Krsna and serve Him, priti-purvakam, with love and affection... Not officially. Krsna understands everything, that who is worshiping Him with love and affection and who is worshiping Him for some material gain. Krsna is nobody's servant. He cannot be order-supplier. You must be prepared to supply His order or to obey His order. Then priti-purvakam: then He will give you instruction. What instruction? Yena mam upayanti: "Again come back home."
So last night we were speaking of the Bhagavata sloka, that this life should not be spoiled like hogs and dogs. We must learn how to love Krsna with love and affection and take instruction from Him to make our life successful.
