In Conversation with His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedānta Swami Prabhupāda
Prabhupada: …but they will explain immediately. Explain immediately. Say so many things. One man becomes blind. They will explain, “This happened and, oh, that…” But why don’t you replace it? This is going on.
Satsvarupa: When there is a big earthquake, they will come out and say, “This happened…”
Prabhupada: “This happened, this happened, this happened.” And therefore in Bengal it is said, pāgale ki nā bale chāgale ki nā khāya: “The madman, what he does not say, and a goat, what he does not eat?”
Prabhupada: What does he not say?
Satsvarupa: He’ll say anything.
Prabhupada: He says anything nonsense. Everything they will immediately explain, “It is this.” Why this color? “And this electron and…” What is called? Proton? No? What are the names?
Satsvarupa: Electron, proton, neutron?
Prabhupada: No, no. They have got another invention. Die-N-E. What is called?
Prabhupada: DNA. In explaining, they are very expert. And if you know what is that, then why don’t you replace it? What is that DNA nonsense? Put it into use. In the classroom they’ll make: “This DNA is going this way, that way…” Now, who has made this arrangement, exactly going in the same way? You cannot manufacture – either DNA and the movements also. Actually it is very wonderful things are going.
Satsvarupa: Any explanation except Krishna. They give some alternative explanation than Krishna.
Prabhupada: That is their aim: no God.
Satsvarupa: Now these psychiatrists are doing that with our Hare Krishna. They say, “When these people… They take to Hare Krishna because of this, because of that, and when they chant this happens in their brain, and this is happening.” They don’t believe that it is anything transcendental.
Prabhupada: Yes. They say that “There is a brain. There is a tissue. There is cerebrum. On account of, they are thinking spiritually. Otherwise if it is cut off, there will be no more opportunity.” They’ll do that, brain operation. And whatever nonsense they will do, we’ll accept.
Gurukripa: They have electric.
Satsvarupa: Electric shock.
Prabhupada: Dangerous community. These scientists, the so-called, they are dangerous community. Now, if five ounce(?) sight(?) is there, “No, it should be operated. Then he will be cured.” And actually it is happening. In the hospitals they make all kinds of experiment, and if you say, “No, why you are doing that? A patient is suffering,” “We must execute our science. So long the life is there we shall try to save him.” They say like that. They will go on with all nonsense activity, and if you want to stop them, they will say, “No, our science has got so…” They take in writing that “Whatever we shall do, you cannot object.” Hospital -it is a place of demons. And as soon as they get a patient who will not protest, they’ll make it, they’ll make it and operation. No medicine, simply operate.
Gurukripa: What they do now is… What they’ve been doing is they have all these pills, and they give them to people to experiment, to see what the reaction is.
Prabhupada: Hm. That is going on. Big, big patent medicine, they will explain scientifically and give to the doctor and make experiment, and they will go on making experiment. I know this. This is their business. They’ll write, they will call for the medical students—they have learned new, new words—and they’ll pay to make a literature with bombastic scientific word, and they’ll prepare literature. This literature will be distributed and give their medicine, and they may pay them for false propaganda. This is going on to introduce new patent medicine. I know that. Simply water they will inject to get money. The patients have come, innocent, illiterate—”Do you want to be cured very quickly or little less?” He’s a laborer -he says, “Yes, sir, if you cure me.” “So then injection will be required.” He has no disease, and they’ll give some water injection, yes, and take fee. Because as soon as there is question injection, he’ll charge at least four rupees, five rupees. He has no disease. They will inject water and take four, five rupees. In India I have seen.
Gurukripa: If you need… If you have one infection in America, you know what you need—some penicillin, something to kill the infection. But the doctor will have to make all sorts of experiments to tell you what you already know.
Prabhupada: “You first of all give so much blood. So much give me, and then…”
Gurukripa: Yes. And charge you fifty dollars.
Prabhupada: Regular business. It is very difficult to consult with a doctor.
Gurukripa: And I saw the dentist. He tried to ruin one of my tooth so he could Continue reading
