Prabhupada, July 26, 1975, Laguna Beach: [...] Isavasyam idam sarvam yat kincit jagatyam jagat. Find out this, Isopanisad. Everything belongs to God. That I was speaking, that we don’t possess anything. This big ocean, is it our property?
But we are claiming, “This portion of Pacific is mine.” How it became yours? Did your father manufacture it? But we are claiming falsely, “This is mine. This is American portion, and this is Japanese portion. This is that portion and….” We do not possess it; we falsely claim it. This is our position.
Actually it is the possession of God. God has created this land, this ocean, the sky, the air, the fire. You have not created. So how claim? We are claiming, “This space is our. You cannot fly your plane on this space.” Do they not do like that?
But how the space came to your possession? You have not created it. This is misunderstanding. I do not possess it; still, I claim, “It is my property.” And there is fight. You are claiming something your property, I am claiming something as my property, but none of them belongs to you or me.
Brahmananda: Srila Prabhupada, in America there’s a great deal of material development but very little spiritual development.
Prabhupada: Therefore, we have given you the Krishna consciousness, that material development is very good provided it is added with spiritual consciousness. Full Conversation
