Prabhupada: ...pilot for 747, paying him a large sum of money. And here is airplane, everything complete with a pilot. Create (indistinct) by your scientific brain. Rascal. You are so proud of your scientific...
Hari-sauri: In mayapur, you said that the mosquito's body is so perfect that although with one slap it's finished, still it has a syringe so strong that it immediately upon landing on the skin it can penetrate and extract blood.
Prabhupada: Immediately, just see. And if you allow one second, he'll fill the whole body up by sucking the...Just see what is that nozzle and how quickly they can... There is no intelligence? The mosquito has better intelligence than any human being about his business. Therefore Prahlada Maharaja said sukham aindriyakam daitya deha-yogena dehinam. That particular body, he is destined to enjoy a certain amount of sense gratification according to his body. Sarvatra labhyate daivad. God's arrangement is nice. He can get it. The mosquito is getting. He wanted to suck blood, so he has been given a teeny body, he can suck blood. Very little quantity. So arrangement is there. He'll satisfy his senses, daivad, by arrangement of God. So why you are endeavoring? Even it is there in the mosquito, even it is there in the tiger or any animal or man, it is already arranged. Why you are wasting time in that way? Simply sense gratification. Who will understand this philosophy? The fact is explained. That gentleman, Subramanya is very much appreciative.
Hari-sauri: Hmm.
Prabhupada: Those who are sane men, they are appreciating that here is a movement actually for the benefit... It is not sentimental, cheating, bluffing. Economic development. Do economic development, why you forget your real business? Tat-prayaso na kartavyo yena ayur... What is that? Vyayah param, simply wasting the valuable time of our life. If you want to suck blood, just become a mosquito. (laughs) Pray to God: "Give me the body of a mosquito." Quickly, you will get. Yanti deva-vrata devan [Bg. 9.25]. Bhutejyah yanti bhutani. You'll get it.
Devotee: Kirtanananda is here with the car. (microphone rattling-changes to outside)
Prabhupada: Hare Krsna. Simply expand this idea. Krsi-go-raksya-vanijyam [Bg. 18.44]. (end)
