Prabhupada: Interpretation, first thing is that: why interpretation? If the meaning is straight, just like in the Bhagavad-gita it is said, dharma-ksetre kuru-ksetre samaveta yuyutsavah [Bg. 1.1].

Kuruksetra (indistinct) acaret… This is the Vedic instruction that everyone should go to Kuruksetra and perform ritualistic duties, that is being done and it is written dharma-ksetre kuru-ksetre [Bg. 1.1], why interpretation?
Prabhupada: (Hindi) You are more than Krsna? You are so, you have got the audacity to speak more than Krsna?

Devotees: Jaya Srila Prabhupada.
Prabhupada: Hare Krsna. ——–
