(HH Kadamba Kanana Swami, 11th May 2012, Sydney, Australia) Lecture: House programme (Transcribed by Smita Krishna Devi Dasi) We have to hear from Srimad Bhagavatam. If we don’t hear, … more
All sacrifices are made for Krsna- Why? Because Krsna is the proprietor of everything. One man met Srila Prabhupada in Mayapur and he was very wealthy, and Prabhupada said;
“So what is your business?”
The man said, “We manufacture glass”.
Prabhupada said, “ Oh how do you manufacture glass?”
He said, “ Oh it’s made from silicium”.
And Prabhupada said, “ And how do you get that ?”
“We get it from sand”.
Prabhupada said, “Where are you getting the sand? From where are you getting the sand?”
And because it was a sadhu asking the question he said,“ From God!”
And Prabhupada said, “Yes, that’s right! So you are taking something that belongs to someone, and then you are changing it a little bit: Then you are selling it in the market. What do you call that ? Pukha chore (laughter)… pukha chore”.
Absolutely right?! You go to the chore bazaar and that’s what you get! It’s changed a little bit, and there you go. So this is the essence – that’s stealing. So in this way everything came from Krsna.
