Svarupa Damodara: We should take knowledge from Krsna.
Svarupa Damodara: And Prabhupada.
Prabhupada: Yes. Prabhupada is giving you the same knowledge, that’s all.
There is no question of cheating. I have received this knowledge from Krsna, and you take this. That’s all. My business is finished.
Kirtanananda: Things equal to the same thing are equal to each other.
Prabhupada: Yes, that is the duty. Parampara system means the spiritual master shall not give anything which is not spoken by Krsna. That is Caitanya Mahaprabhu’s… Yare dekha, tare kaha ‘krsna’-upadesa: “You become guru under My order.” “But I do not know anything nicely, how can I become guru?” “No, you have no botheration. You simply take Krsna’s word and say, and you become guru.”
amara ajnaya guru hana tara ei desa
yare dekha, tare kaha ‘krsna’-upadesa
[Cc. Madhya 7.128]
If the child says to another man, “Father said, ‘This is this,’ ” then he is perfect. He has learned from the father, and the father is perfect, then whatever he says, it is perfect. Why should he take so much botheration? So our, process is that, that we become guru not like that rascal Guruji, no.
We speak whatever Krsna has spoken. That’s all. Of course, we try to impress upon you with your reason, logic, but we shall speak the same thing, not anything else. Krsna says, “I am supreme;” We say, “Krsna is supreme.”
That’s all. Where is the botheration? I haven’t got to find out by my logic and induction whether Krsna is supreme. That I have already done. So Krsna is supreme. There is no doubt about it. Now, whatever Krsna says, it is all right. That’s all.
