“…Government should have expert men… to see that the Hindus are acting like Hindu, Muslims are acting like Muslim, and Christians are acting like Christian.”

“…Government should have expert men… to see that the Hindus are acting like Hindu, Muslims are acting like Muslim, and Christians are acting like Christian.”

Prabhupada said, “The government issuing license. They have got supervision. They send sometimes, what is called, inspectors? Education. Say, for education. There is educational inspector, school inspector. They go see that the students are properly being educated in that school. Similarly, government should have expert men in the government to see that the Hindus are acting like Hindu, Muslims are acting like Muslim, and Christians are acting like Christian. The government should not be callous about religion. They may be neutral that whatever religion you profess, government has nothing to do. You do nicely. But it is the government’s duty to see that you are doing nicely, you are not bluffing. That is government’s duty.” – Room conversation with Indian Ambassador, 5 September 1973, Stockholm

Ambassador: No, we have a difficulty, Your Eminence. We have got a problem in India because we have got this multi-religious society. So we have to be careful. But individuals can…

Prabhupada: No…

Ambassador: Because we have got to be… We should not be misunderstood. As a government, we should not take too strong a policy about any particular religion, even though it is the religion of the majority of the people.

Prabhupada: No, no, no. It is the duty of the government… Secular state means neutral to any kind of religion. But it is the duty of government to see that people are religious. Not that “Because government is secular, let the people go to hell.”

Ambassador: No, that’s true.

Prabhupada: Yes. If you are Muslim, and, it is my duty as government to see that you are actually acting as a Muslim. If you are a Hindu, it is the government’s duty to see that you are acting as a Hindu. If you are a Christian, it is the government’s duty. You cannot give up religion. Dharmena hinah pasubhih samanah. If people become irreligious in the name of secularism, then they are simply animals. So it is the government’s duty to see that the citizens are not becoming animals. He may profess a type of religion. That doesn’t matter. But he must be religious. That is secular state. Not that secular state means government is callous, “Let the people become cats and dogs, without religion. Government doesn’t care.” That is not good government. What do you think?

Ambassador: I think, Your Eminence, there’s a lot in what you say, but, you know, politics is the art of the possible.

Prabhupada: No. No, politics means to see that people are advanced, citizens are advanced, not that they are degraded.

Ambassador: Your Eminence, I agree, but I think the duty of the government primarily is to provide conditions in which gifted people, spiritual people like you, leaders like you, can function. More than that, if the government does, it might probably even corrupt the religious… I don’t know. Like an umpire in a game, you know, or something… Provide the conditions, provide the conditions for free speech. Not like Moscow, you know, where it is…

Prabhupada: No. That is… Just like you have got the Commerce Department. Government has got. What is the duty of the Commerce Department? The government must see that the trade enterprise, common share, or industrial enterprise, they are doing nicely, properly. The government issuing license. They have got supervision. They send sometimes, what is called, inspectors? Education. Say, for education. There is educational inspector, school inspector. They go see that the students are properly being educated in that school. Similarly, government should have expert men in the government to see that the Hindus are acting like Hindu, Muslims are acting like Muslim, and Christians are acting like Christian. The government should not be callous about religion. They may be neutral that whatever religion you profess, government has nothing to do. You do nicely. But it is the government’s duty to see that you are doing nicely, you are not bluffing. That is government’s duty.

“If it is right thing, then I am right to force you.”

“If it is right thing, then I am right to force you.”

Prabhupada said, “If it is right thing, then I am right to force you.” – Morning walk, 29 January 1977, Bhuvanesvara

Hari-sauri: Well, you may say that I’m unhappy with the authority I’ve got now, but if you force me to accept Krishna consciousness when I don’t want it, then that will also make me unhappy.

Prabhupada: No, if it is right thing, then I am right to force you.

Satsvarupa: This is against our democratic spirit in the West. It…

Prabhupada: Democratic means “demoncratic.”

Satsvarupa: That’s why they revolted against the kings, so that they wouldn’t have to be forced. “Give me liberty or give me death.”

Hari-sauri: But under that banner of saying “This is good for you,” you can force me to do all kinds of things.

Prabhupada: Yes. Yes, that is king’s duty. Then force. Otherwise why there is military force?

“Kill all the mudhas and give Krishna to the sane man. Yes. That will prove that you are really Krishna’s.”

“Kill all the mudhas and give Krishna to the sane man. Yes. That will prove that you are really Krishna’s.”

Prabhupada said, “Those who are actually human being, you have to give them Krishna. And those who are mudhas, we have to kill them. This is our business. Kill all the mudhas and give Krishna to the sane man. Yes. That will prove that you are really Krishna’s. We are not nonviolent. We are violent to the mudhas.” – Morning walk, 21 January 1976, Mayapur

“Still, if you say, ‘You are mudha,’ they become angry. Such mudhas, rascals, they are in the government service. And if you say that ‘You are mudhas,’ he becomes angry. Upadeso hi murkhanam prakopaya na santaye: ‘If a mudha is advised nice instruction, he becomes angry.’ He does not take it. Payah-panam bhujanganam kevalam visa-vardhanam: ‘If you give milk and banana to a snake, you simply increase his poison.’ One day he will come-(growls). You see? ‘I have given you milk and you…’ ‘Yes, that is my nature. Yes. You give me milk, and I am prepared to kill you.’ This is mudha. We have to kill this civilization of mudhas. That is Krishna consciousness movement. Paritranaya sadhunam vinasaya ca duskrtam [BG 4.8]. Those who are actually human being, you have to give them Krishna. And those who are mudhas, we have to kill them. This is our business. Kill all the mudhas and give Krishna to the sane man. Yes. That will prove that you are really Krishna’s. We are not nonviolent. We are violent to the mudhas.”

“Either establish Krishna conscious government or kill them – bas, finish.”

“Either establish Krishna conscious government or kill them – bas, finish.”

Prabhupada said, “Yes, that is my mission. That is Krishna’s mission, paritranaya sadhunam vinasaya ca duskrtam [BG 4.8], to kill all these demons, crazy demons. I have no such power; otherwise I would have killed them. Either establish Krishna conscious government or kill them – bas, finish. I would have done that, violence.” – Room conversation, 25 February 1977, Mayapur

Prabhupada: If you can introduce this system, varnasrama, then it will establish. No more change. This is a rascal’s government, this democracy.

 

Tamala Krishna: “Demoncracy.”

 

Prabhupada: “Demoncracy.”

 

Hari-Sauri: “Demon-crazy.”

 

Prabhupada: “Demon-crazy.” (laughter) Demon and crazy. Not only demon… There are demons whose brain is all right, but they are crazy also.

 

Tamala Krishna: (laughing) Demon-crazy.

 

Prabhupada: And introduce books in the school, colleges, libraries, so nice books. There is no doubt about it. There is no such literature throughout the world.

 

Tamala Krishna: Gradually some of the people are beginning to understand what you’re up to, Srila Prabhupada. Some of these big demons in America especially, they are beginning to understand that you are the most dangerous personality in the world to them.

 

Prabhupada: To kill “demon-crazy,” LSD. (laughs) Yes, that is my mission. That is Krishna’s mission, paritranaya sadhunam vinasaya ca duskrtam [BG 4.8], to kill all these demons, crazy demons. I have no such power; otherwise I would have killed them. Either establish Krishna conscious government or kill them – bas, finish. I would have done that, violence.

“Whatever the father and the spiritual master order should be taken without argument: ‘Yes.'”

“Whatever the father and the spiritual master order should be taken without argument: ‘Yes.'”

Prabhupada said, “The son or disciple should accept the words of his spiritual master and father without hesitation.” – SB 3.24.13, purport

“Two words in this verse are very important; one word is pitari, and another word is guroh. The son or disciple should accept the words of his spiritual master and father without hesitation. Whatever the father and the spiritual master order should be taken without argument: ‘Yes.’ There should be no instance in which the disciple or the son says, ‘This is not correct. I cannot carry it out.’ When he says that, he is fallen. The father and the spiritual master are on the same platform because a spiritual master is the second father. The higher classes are called dvija, twice-born. Whenever there is a question of birth, there must be a father. The first birth is made possible by the actual father, and the second birth is made possible by the spiritual master. Sometimes the father and the spiritual master may be the same man, and sometimes they are different men. In any case, the order of the father or the order of the spiritual master must be carried out without hesitation, with an immediate yes. There should be no argument. That is real service to the father and to the spiritual master. Visvanatha Cakravarti Thakura has stated that the order of the spiritual master is the life and soul of the disciples. As a man cannot separate his life from his body, a disciple cannot separate the order of the spiritual master from his life. If a disciple follows the instruction of the spiritual master in that way, he is sure to become perfect. This is confirmed in the Upanishads: the import of Vedic instruction is revealed automatically only to one who has implicit faith in the Supreme Personality of Godhead and in his spiritual master. One may be materially considered an illiterate man, but if he has faith in the spiritual master as well as in the Supreme Personality of Godhead, then the meaning of scriptural revelation is immediately manifested before him.”

“We have to kill this civilization of mudhas. That is Krishna consciousness movement.”

“We have to kill this civilization of mudhas. That is Krishna consciousness movement.”

Prabhupada said, “We have to kill this civilization of mudhas. That is Krishna consciousness movement. Paritranaya sadhunam vinasaya ca duskrtam [BG 4.8]. Those who are actually human being, you have to give them Krishna. And those who are mudhas, we have to kill them. This is our business. Kill all the mudhas and give Krishna to the sane man. Yes. That will prove that you are really Krishna’s. We are not nonviolent. We are violent to the mudhas.” – Morning walk, 21 January 1976, Mayapur

“The same process as the Mohammedans did, with sword and Koran, we’ll have to do that.”

“The same process as the Mohammedans did, with sword and Koran, we’ll have to do that.”

Prabhupada said, “When there will be military march of Krishna conscious soldiers. Anyone who does not believe in Krishna, ‘Blam!’ Yes. The same process as the Mohammedans did, with sword and Koran, we’ll have to do that. ‘Do you believe in Krishna or not?’ ‘No, sir.’ ‘Blam!’ Finished.” – Morning walk, 15 March 1974, Vrindavana
