Unite and Change the World


The Padma Pur ana states that there are 8,400,000 different species of life, of which 400,000 are human. Out of them, one who is born in India is a first-class human being. That is a fact. Unfortunately, we are missing the chance. Therefore Caitanya Mahaprabhu says, bharata-bhumite haila manusya-janma yarn. Indians should know that after performing many pious activities, one gets birth in India {bharata-bhumite). So try to understand krishna. There is facility. There are sastras. krishna personally speaks Bhagavad-gita. Vyasadeva speaks about krishna in the Srlmad-Bhagavatam. We are neglecting. We have become such rascals and fools. This is not India's business, to imitate economic development: "Money, money, money, money, money." India's business is to understand krishna. Athato brahma-jijnasa ("Human life is meant for enquiry into the Absolute Truth"—Vedanta-sutra). These Americans and Europeans have not come here to see how much you are economically and industrially developed. They have got enough of diis, more than enough. They don't care for it. The modern young men are fed up. They have come here to understand krishna. Therefore we are constructing this centre. Let everyone come, from all over the world. It is India's business to understand krishna and help mem. The krishna consciousness movement is a very serious movement. On this platform, the whole world can be united. It is not an ordinary movement. Try to understand krishna.4I have given mem me philosophy of "American money and Indian culture." Combined togedier, die face of me world will change. Don't keep Indian culture airtight, and don't keep American money for sense gratification. Use it for krishna.5
