Shrila Prabhupada Teachings-Quotes ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’


Professor Kotovsky: Could I just say one thing? What is in the Vedas could also have been proved in a scientific way. Today, suppose there is a scientific laboratory. What is said by that lab is true. That it is true you accept, without going into the propriety of it. Suppose you have a scientific workshop or institution; if this workshop or scientific institution says, “This is not good,” the general body will take it for granted: “Yes. The scientific body has said so, so it is understood.” ลšrฤซla Prabhupฤda said: Similarly, Vedic authoritative statements are accepted by the acaryas [great teachers]. India is governed by the acaryas — Ramanujacarya, Madhvacarya, Sankaracarya. They accept the Vedas, and their followers accept them. The benefit is that I do not waste my time to research whether cow dung is pure or impure; rather, because it is stated in the Vedas to be pure, I accept it. I save my time by accepting the sruti-pramana. In that way there are different statements in the Vedas for sociology and politics or anything, for veda means “knowledge.” sarvasya caham hrdi sannivisto mattah smrtir jnanam apohanam ca vedais ca sarvair aham eva vedyo vedanta-krd veda-vid eva caham (Bhฤgavad Gita:15:15) Back to Godhead Magazine-The Vedic Conception Of Communism-An Interview In Moscow With His Divine Grace A.C.
