this story to a friend
...told Srila Prabhupada, that it was published in a nationwide
magazine. They showed that where people's trust was. They weren't
trusting anything very much, but they trusted the medical people number
one, and organized religion as such was way, way down, number eight or
so. Why are people trusting the doctors so much?
Because they are under this impression the doctors are scientifically
advanced. But the doctors' science is also imperfect. Because they do
not know what is the soul. They do not believe in soul.
They trust the doctors the first, and they trust television the second.
Whatever they see on television, they accept.
Why they give so much authority to television?
Well, everyone watches it. So they just become indoctrinated.
That is their altar in their home. It is in a permanent place in the
center of their house, and they put flowers on top and they worship
(laughing) Hare Krishna.
It's intoxication also.
After all, they accept authority. Either the doctor or the television,
is it not?
Now they should accept Bhagavad-gita.
Yes. They cannot say that they don't want authority. They cannot say.
The authority is already there.
Well, the common people are crying for authority, leadership.
Therefore you have to teach them how to elect leader. These are the
qualification of the leaders. He must not be sinful. Then he can be.
