966) Whether I know anyone under material energy is crazy! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!

————– The Vaisnava Kavi says therefore,

pisaci paile yena mati-cchanna haya
maya-grasta jivera se dasa upajaya

Just like when a man is ghostly haunted — in Bengal it is called bhute pava (?) — and he speaks nonsense, even his father is before him, he wants to attack his father without any respect. Madman, crazy. So anyone under this protection of the material energy — more or less, crazy. More or less. It is not only our words. It is scientifically true. I know, there was one case, a man was condemned to death and his pleader presented that “This man was in, in insanity condition. Therefore he committed this act. He may be excused.” So the, a civil surgeon was invited to examine him, whether he’s, actually he was in sanity condition. The civil surgeon gave evidence that so far he had treated so many patients, he saw everyone is more or less crazy.” Under the circumstances, if this man is crazy, that depends on your judgement, what to do. But in my opinion, every man is a crazy man.” So this is a fact. This is a fact. Anyone who is under the control of the material energy, he’s a crazy man. He’s thinking “I am this, I am that, I am this,” “I am American,” “I am Indian,” “I am Hindu,” “I am a Muslim,” “I am so on, so on, so many things.” But he’s nothing of all this. These are all creation of maya. —————-
