Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
Prabhupāda: All these members of the United Nations, everyone is thinking in the bodily concept, 'I am American', 'I am Indian', 'I am Chinese'. So how there will be unity? There cannot be. That is we are proposing, that don't think in the bodily concept of life. Brahma-bhūtaḥ prasannātmā na śocati (BG 18.54): that we are teaching. But they are thinking they have gone to the United Nation, but they are keeping themselves as dogs. There cannot be any peace. They must go on barking against one another. That's all.
Nava-yauvana: They are thinking that they have to protect their so-called interest.
Prabhupāda: So the dog is also thinking. From three miles he begins to bark, 'Why you are coming here? Don't come. I am protecting my interest'. That mentality is there in the dog; so how you are greater than the dog?
