"A human being, at least a class of man there must be, brāhmaṇa, brāhma jānāti iti brāhmaṇaḥ, one who knows how things are going on. We know that. We Kṛṣṇa conscious people, we know. Therefore we are civilized.
Gaṇeśa: But the Bhagavad-gītā, it was written five thousand years ago, so it doesn't pertain to today.
Prabhupāda: No, it was not written. It was there. Then you do not read Bhagavad-gītā. Why you are speaking like that? You know Bhagavad-gītā? You have not studied Bhagavad-gītā. That is a disgrace for you. You have read Bhagavad-gītā?
Gaṇeśa: A little.
Prabhupāda: What is that?
Amogha: He says yes, a little.
Prabhupāda: Then you do not know. Why he says that Bhagavad-gītā was written five thousand years ago? Why do you say like that? You do not know. It was first spoken forty millions of years ago. Imaṁ vivasvate yogaṁ proktavān aham . . . (BG 4.1). What kind of reader you are of Bhagavad-gītā, you do not know?"
