Conversation with disciples, Paris, June 12, 1974

Comment Send this story to a friend

Paramahamsa: If the material creation is created by Krishna, then man cannot destroy it although they are thinking that if they have a nuclear war, then they will destroy the earth.

Prabhupada: What they will destroy?

Paramahamsa: They're thinking the earth will just blow up with all the atomic bombs.

Prabhupada: That means this earth will be finished?

Paramahamsa: Yes.

Prabhupada: They're expecting that?

Paramahamsa: Yes.

Prabhupada: The earth will be finished?

Bhagavan: They think it's within their power.

Prabhupada: Eh?

Bhagavan: It's within their power.

Prabhupada: Within their power, so many things they're imagining. That is not possible. He can make a big hole only. That's all. Then where he'll stand? Suppose he finishes the earth. Then he is also finished. Then what is the credit? If you suicide, if you cut your own throat, is that very good credit? Then what is the credit? Suppose he has manufactured something that the earth will be finished. Then he'll be also finished. So what is God's loss? There are millions of earth-like planets floating in the sky. So one is lost. What is God's loss? It is your loss, that you are finished. Is that very good invention, to finish yourself? You are being finished. And now you have invented instrument to be finished. So you'll be finished. Wait for that. Why you are anxious to invent something to finish yourself? Is that very good intelligence? You'll be finished. That's a fact. So why you have invented machine to finish yourself quickly and you want to take credit? That means he proves he's a nonsense. He's a nonsense.

Paramahamsa: If God is all-good, why does He permit so many wars to go on?

Prabhupada: Because you want to be finished. You create war to be finished. God does not create. Just like you have created this weapon. In the name of finishing your enemy, you'll be finished, also. Is that very good credit? And God has created like that? You have created. Why don't you understand this?

Yogeshvar: Well, why has God permitted me to do such a horrible thing?

Prabhupada: Yes, that is your little independence. God does not want to touch any... By your independence, go to hell or go to heaven. That's your choice. God says that "Don't use your independence by malpractice." Sarva-dharman parityajya mam... [Bhagavad-gita 18.66]. God, that is God's statement. "You surrender to Me. I'll guide you." But if you misuse your independence, that's your business. You go to hell or heaven. That's your business.
