Conversation–“You Cannot Preach Your Philosophy” April 12, 1975, Hyderabad.
906) Whether I know I should not cheat through my preaching! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!
—————Guest (1): Ramana Maharshi?
Prabhupada: Ramana Maharshi, yes, I am speaking of Ramana Maharshi. He never preached about Krsna’s superexcellent position, never preached. This is going on. Everyone is taking advantage of Bhagavad-gita and he’s preaching in his own way, foolish way. “Own way” means foolish way. This is going on. You cannot… Suppose you have got your philosophy, but you cannot take my book and preach your philosophy. If you have got philosophy, you write your philosophy. Why do you take advantage of my book and misinterpret? This is cheating. Because my book is very popular, you take advantage of my book and preach your own nonsense philosophy. ———————————
