SB-5.5.1-2–“Don’t Live the Life of a Hog”–Bombay, March 25, 1977
668) Whether I know what intelligence is! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!
——- So this is a very elaborate scientific subject matter, and we are trying to present all over the world. Why not our Indian brothers take it very seriously? Why we should be carried away by the waves of material nature? This is not very good idea. Tapo divyam putraka yena suddhyed sattva [SB 5.5.1]. Sattva, my existence. At the present moment… Just like I am coughing. So because I am, for the present moment, I am diseased. So this is the symptom of coughing. Similarly, why I am dying? This should be the question. Ke ami kena more japatiya traya. I hear from Bhagavad-gita that I am eternal: na hanyate hanyamane sarire [Bg. 2.20]. Na jayate na mriyate va. Then why I am dying? This is intelligence. Why I am dying? This “why.” Kena Upanisad. But this is not being educated. ———–
