|YOU HAVE TO STOP DEMONISM|
Similarly, now America has to do the same thing to stop demonism. Then your nation will be leader....You cannot
stop communism. You have to stop demonism. That is
your real business. Communism is another type of
demonism. So if you remain a demon, so what
is the use of stopping another demonism?
Svarupa Damodara: They want to stop spread of communism.
Prabhupada: Yes. Similarly, now America has to do the same thing to stop demonism. Then your nation will be leader. You understand; you have trust in God. Now it is your business to trust in real God and work for Him. You cannot... I have explained already. You cannot stop communism. You have to stop demonism. That is your real business. Communism is another type of demonism. So if you remain a demon, so what is the use of stopping another demonism? The same example: stool, the upside is dried up. You cannot say, "Because it is upside of stool, it is better side." Stool is stool. Guer ei pita en opita. (?) (dog barking loudly) Come on. That's all right. He cannot make the condition of the world better by... Just like Professor Kotofsky. He was saying that there must be revolution. I was talking of authority. So the authority you must have to accept. So he said that authority is accepted upon revolution.
Svarupa Damodara: After revolution?
Prabhupada: Ah. Because I said about authority... So this is fact. Now, in Russia the authority was the Czar. Now, after this Bolshevik revolution, Lenin became authority. That was his point. I said that you have to accept one authority. That you cannot change. That he said, that "Yes, that I accept, but authority has to be changed by revolution." And yes, we accept that. But the ult... When you come to Krsna consciousness authority, then there is no more necessity of change." Yam labdhva caparam labham manyate nadhikam tatah. Everyone is trying to achieve the greatest profit. So when he gets Krsna, he is satisfied. No more profit. Final profit. Yam labdhva caparam labham manyate nadhikam tatah. So there is no more necessity of revolution because that is the ultimate peaceful condition. So if you do not come to the ultimate condition of peace, then this revolutionary method will go on, continue. There will be no cessation of revolution, one after, one... That is maya, illusion. I am thinking by going a few steps, mirage, I will get the water. But there is no water at all. It is simply illusion. And as soon as you go a few steps forward, you see that the water has gone away, again, few steps forward. You go again. Again you see. This is going on. So animal, they go forward after the mirage. But a sensible man, he knows that "This is not water. It appears like water, but it is not water." Therefore we are making revolution, changing one authority from another, but we do not know they are not authorities. Real authority is Krsna.
