May 8, 1977, Hrishikesh
Prabhupada: I don't want your teaching.
Indian lady (1): Would you say that I accept duty of the...
Prabhupada: You understand first of all. Whatever the rascal father was teaching, he was refusing. That is the quarrel between the father and the son.
Indian man (2): Srila Prabhupada, what is the responsibility of some person towards the father who has given the material body to him?
Prabhupada: Oh, don't try to understand in a minute. You read all these books. But tentatively, if the child has form, the father must have form. There is no doubt of it. And what is that form? That you have to understand. And his question, the father was a demon, but the child was not demon because he refused to follow that demon father. That was his only fault.
Indian man (3): Prabhupada, if I am allowed, I could just say what Guru Nanak said. He said (Hindi). He said, "Lord Father does not have the cycle of birth." Therefore, I mean...
Prabhupada: So (Hindi).
Indian man (3): My interpretation...
Prabhupada: Then why interpretation? (Hindi) Na jayate na mriyate va. (Hindi) (Hindi conversation) (pause)
British devotee: Should we stop now, Srila Prabhupada? It's quarter to seven.
Prabhupada: Hm.
British devotee: So the people how have been staying here...
Tamala Krsna: You can make an announcement.
British devotee: Yes. Everyone can please take leave now. Srila Prabhupada now has to get ready to leave. He's going to Agra tomorrow.
Prabhupada: (Hindi)
British devotee: So if you can come to the door, stand at the door... That's the door, yes.
Prabhupada: (Hindi)
British devotee: Bhumipati, could you help there?
Prabhupada: Jaya. Thank you very much.
British devotee: That man would like you to...
Prabhupada: I'll go. (end)
