(Kadamba Kanana Swami, Vrindavan India 4 April 2019, SB 8.17.25-27)
They did not go to the moon. Although I was there in front of the television and we saw it, and it was a big thing. The whole world was together. It overcame everything, the Russians, the Chinese and everyone was part of it. They were all watching and they all were sharing the monitoring of the space shuttle. It was a big thing – a man on the moon Neil Armstrong.
“It was all a hoax.”
“Well Srila Prabhupada if you say so then it must be true. And why do you say so Srila Prabhupada?”
“Simply because in the Bhagavatam it states that the moon is further away from the sun,”
Finished! That settles it. That was the only reason – that was it. That was outrageous – to say that in this world. Prabhupada had full faith in the Bhagavatam.
