"They are saying, 'Don't... There is no God. We don't care for God. We are, everyone, God'. But māyā, the police force, is there, kicking on the face. And they are subjected to so many tribulations, miserable conditions of life, especially birth, death, old age and disease. Now you don't care for God. So why don't you stop your death? You stop your death. Kṛṣṇa says in the Bhagavad-gītā, mṛtyuḥ sarva-haraś ca aham (BG 10.34): 'To the rascals and the demons, I am death. I take away everything'. Sarva-haraḥ."
Prabhupāda: Sugarcane... One who is suffering in jaundice will taste sugarcane as bitter. That is the taste. So that is the medicine. So he has to take the sugarcane. And by taking, when he is cured he will find, 'Oh, it is very sweet'. Puṣṭa Kṛṣṇa: So then he has to recognize that there is some problem living in this material world. Prabhupāda: No. He does not find any happiness on account of his too much materialistic mind. Brahmānanda: That is the disease. Prabhupāda: That is the disease. So it has to be cured by this bhakti-yoga. So in the bhakti-yoga, in the beginning, it will taste bitter. Therefore they do not come. But if they take to bhakti-yoga, then the material disease will be cured and they will find it is very sweet. Puṣṭa Kṛṣṇa: Yes.
