Lectures : Srimad-Bhagavatam Lectures : Canto 1: Lectures : SB 1.15: Lectures : Srimad-Bhagavatam 1.15.31 — Los Angeles, December 9, 1973 : 731209SB.LA :
So this Kṛṣṇa consciousness movement is a challenge to all the rascals and fools, that’s all. So those who have taken this movement very seriously, they should be very sober and understand at least you must expose all these rascals. That will be very much appreciated by Kṛṣṇa

Prabhupāda: No, it is Sanskrit. And in Bengal it is called vane āsiyā rāja.(?) “In the forest a jackal has become king.” They are like that. Nīla-varṇa-sṛigālavat.(?) When… There is big story about this jackal. I will tell you some. A jackal came in the village and he fell in the tub where, what is called, the water? No, no. The water man keeps the water for dipping, making little bluish. For coloring. That blue, blue. So the washerman kept the dye water in a big tub, and the jackal fell in it. So jackal fell in it; he became blue, all blue. So he fled away, and all the animals said, “What is this animal? What is the animal? What is that animal? Oh?” All, even lion became surprised. “We have not seen this.” “So who are you, sir?” “I am sent by God to rule over you.” “Oh?” So they began to worship him as God, as leader. Then one day other jackals, they were crying, “Wa, wa,” but the jackals cannot stop. If others jackals cry, the jackal cannot stop. So he also began to “Wa, wa.” Oh, then, they, oh, this rascal is a jackal. Yāvat kiñcin na bhāṣate. That these rascals are jackals. Now they are talking nonsense. We can detect that “Here is a jackal.” So we have to expose them. They are not leader; they are jackals. So jackals cannot anymore rule over. That should be our propaganda. Not only scientific, all political things, social things, everything. They should be all kicked out. They should be replaced by Kṛṣṇa consciousness. Then people will be happy. This should be our program. Our, this propaganda means to make people happy. It is not a business, to make business and take some money. And so many jackals have been arrested and resigned in your… You know that? Many jackals have been obliged to resign their post in the government.

Prabhupāda: Ah. So this is sattvaṁ jayate. It must come out triumphant. We have to try for… How foolishly they are propagating a false theory, and amongst themselves self-complacent, getting prize, eulogization. What is this nonsense? Expose them. Bluffing.The bluffing should be exposed. What you are doing here?
Prabhupāda: No, not at all. You simply expose these rascals, and everything hopeful. You have to know how to expose these rascals. That’s all.
Hṛdayānanda: So the more we preach and chant, the more we become purified.
Prabhupāda: Yes. You have to become powerful spiritually. Then you’ll be able. If you remain weak and manufacture your own way, then it will not be possible.
Prajāpati: …think the strength is our own, though.
Prajāpati: We should not think that this is our own strength.

Prabhupāda: How they’ll understand, all dull-headed fools, rascals? Dressed like gentlemen, that’s all. Tāvat ca śobhate mūrkho yāvat kiñcin na bhāṣate. A rascal fool is decorated so long, as long he does not speak. As long he’ll speak, his nature will be revealed, what is he. This gentleman therefore did not stay long to expose himself. (laughter).
Prabhupāda: Because we are doing business, we are getting money from these rascal government, so if you expose me, then I will not get money, and if I expose you, you will not get money. Let us remain together and let them remain fools. That’s all. This is it. If a common man like me can understand the whole policy, how the scientist will not understand? But they have made a compromise that “Don’t expose me, I’ll not expose you, and let us take money from the government.” This is going on.

Hṛdayānanda: Sometimes, Prabhupāda, when we expose them, their argument is, “Oh, you are a saintly person. Why are you criticizing me?”
Prabhupāda: No, it is not criticizing. It is opening your eyes. You are blind, you are thinking yourself as very big, so we are opening eyes. You are not big. You are not even pig or fig. That is… ajñāna-timirāndhasya jñānāñjana-śalākayā. You are blind with ignorance, so we are trying to open your eyes. See things as they are. It is favoring you. It is not criticizing you. [break]…words, vibhu,the great, and aṇu, the small. So these rascals, they do not understand these two important words, “God is great; I am small.” They think, “I am as good as God.” This is the folly. [break] …English proverb? “Where angels dare not, the fools rush in.” EhConversations : 1976 Conversations : February, 1976 : Morning Walk — February 6, 1976, Mayapura :

Prabhupāda: No, what a fool they are. Try to expose these fools. But people have lost their reason, brain, everything. Even if weexpose, they cannot understand. Still they will stick. (More…)
Prabhupāda: Yes. That we want. They have become unnecessary authorities and misleading people. That we want to expose.
