Therefore, “the king of the kings,” rajendra. “My dear rajendra, emperor, there are many varieties of subject matter for hearing.” For whom? Nrnam: “for the human society.” Nrnam means human beings. Srotavyadini rajendra nrnam santi sahasrasah [SB 2.1.2]. But what class of human being? Apasyatam atma-tattvam: “Those who are fools and rascals without any self-realization knowledge. For them.” Apasyatam. Apasyatam means blind, cannot see. They have got their eyes, but they have no introspection, what is the value of life. Therefore he says, apasyatam. Simply they have eyes like the peacock feather. (laughter) They have no introspection. Eyes means introspection. Therefore Vedic culture says, eyes… Sastra-caksus: “You should see through sastra. Don’t try to see by these eyes.” These are, what is the value of this eye? They are conditioned in so many ways. You don’t believe the eyes. See through the sastra, through the spiritual master, through the sastra. Try to see through this. That is perfect seeing. —————-
