"Now, this Bhagavad-gītā was spoken five thousand years ago, and Bhagavad-gītā it is said that 'This system of Bhagavad-gītā was first spoken by Me to the sun-god'. So if you take estimation of that period, it comes forty millions of years. So whether the European scholar can trace out the history of at least for five thousand years together, not to speak of forty millions? Prof. Kotovsky: Yes. Prabhupāda: So we have got evidences that this varṇāśrama system is current at least for the five thousand years, varṇāśrama. And this varṇāśrama system is mentioned in the Viṣṇu Purāṇa also: varnāśramācaravata puruṣeṇa paraḥ pumān (CC Madhya 8.58). Varnāśrama acaravata. So that is stated in the Viṣṇu Purāṇa. And so varṇāśrama-dharma is not a..., within any historical period calculated in the modern age. It is natural."
"It is stated in the Bhagavad-gītā, sarvasya cāhaṁ hṛdi sanniviṣṭaḥ: 'I am sitting in everyone's heart'. Mattaḥ smṛtir jñānam apohanaṁ ca: (BG 15.15) 'I am giving everyone the intelligence as well as I am taking away the intelligence from everyone'. This double work is being done by the Supersoul. In one side He's helping how to realize self, how to realize God, and other side He's helping also to forget God. How it is that the Supreme Personality of Godhead, as paramātmā, is doing this double work? The sense is that if we want to forget God, God will help us in such a way that we'll forget God life after life. But if we want to reestablish our relationship with God, from within He will help us in every way. This human form of life is a chance for God realization."
