730813 Lecture - Srila Prabhupada Speaks a Nectar Drop in Paris

From Vanipedia

Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"Real solution is that: Kṛṣṇa consciousness. Therefore the Vedānta-sūtra says, athāto brahma jijñāsā: 'Now you don't inquire for any other things'. Why should you? All other things required by you, that is already supplied. It will be supplied. Why you bother? You just try to understand the value of your life in Kṛṣṇa consciousness. That is your only business. Tasyaiva hetoḥ prayateta kovidaḥ. Kovida: 'Those who are intelligent', tasyaiva hetoḥ, 'for that thing', prayateta, 'endeavor'. So try to get that thing. For that thing... Na labhyate yad bhramatām upary adhaḥ (SB 1.5.18). Just like people are struggling. Wherever you go, material world, either you go to London or go to Paris or to Calcutta or Bombay, anywhere you go, what is the business? Everyone is struggling: whoosh-whoosh-whoosh-whoosh-whoosh-whoosh-whoosh. Day and night the motorcar going this way, that way, this way, that way. Last night I was speaking with Śrutakīrti. Wherever we go, we see this nonsense thing, whoosh-whoosh-whoosh-whoosh-whoosh-whoosh-whoosh. Any city you go, the same road, same motorcar, same whoosh-whoosh, same petrol, that's all." (laughter).
