Svarupa Damodara, Vrindavana, August 3, 1974: So we say that brahma-jijnasa is a standard. Is that, is that…? Is that okay?
Prabhupada: Brahma-jijnasa means… Anything you take, it is working in a standard way. Just like the sun is rising. So the brahma-jijnasa means how the sun is rising exactly in time. Who has made this rule? And in astronomy there is very fine calculation, one ten-thousandth part of a minute or something like that? I have heard from you scientists.
They, they make calculation of the movement of the sun, that. In astrology also, the moment is calculated like that. If the exact moment is there, by mathematical calculation, he can give you the exact history of your whole life. This is standard, all standard. Niyamitah. Yasyajnaya bhramati kala-cakrah. There is, Brahma-samhita says:
yac-caksur esa savita sakala-grahanam raja samasta-sura-murtir asesa-tejah yasyajnaya bhramati sambhrta-kala-cakro govindam adi-purusam tam aham bhajami
How exactly the sun and the moon and the planets, they are rotating? How? Yasyajnaya, by whose order? That Govinda, adi-purusa, I offer my respectful… Everywhere you’ll find the research.
Svarupa Damodara: But the difference between the transcendentalists and the scientists is that they do not know the standard of research.
