750608MW-HONOLULU - June 08, 1975 - 02:46 Minutes

Śrutakīrti: (introducing recording) The following conversation takes place on Śrīla Prabhupāda's morning walk, on June 8th, 1975, at Kailua Beach, Hawaii.

Prabhupāda:. . . devotees are described as siddha-sattva-maṇi, siddha-sattva-maṇi. (break)

Harikeśa: I haven't listened to it all, though. That's why the tapes aren't done. (break)

Prabhupāda:. . . people, by not believing in the next life, they have dismissed all problems. Very happy life.

Bali-mardana: They have one saying, "Eat, drink and be merry, for tomorrow you'll die."

Prabhupāda: That's right. Very good civilization. (break). . . Āryan civilization. This is not Āryan civilization. Barbarian. (break) A small child, he knows that "I shall become like my elder brother. I shall get this body, next body." And these people, they cannot understand that there is next body. That means their civilization is less than a child's civilization. (break) . . . dehantara prāptiḥ.

Bali-mardana: Even every child knows that "When I grow up, I will have a different body," . . .

Prabhupāda: Yes.

Bali-mardana: . . . but they do not know.

Prabhupāda: These people, they do not understand. What kind of civilized men they are? Less than a child, and they are proud of their science. (break)

Devotee: They're trying to catch some fish.

Paramahaṁsa: What are they doing?

Devotee: They're fishing.

Prabhupāda: Oh.

Devotee: Crabs. (break)

Prabhupāda: . . . fisherman?

Devotee (2): Yes.

Prabhupāda: They keep this side open and this side covered. You see that?

Devotee (2): Yes.

Prabhupāda: Front side covered, back side open. (break) . . . some fishermen. (end)
