Recorded on April 28, 1973, in Cheviot Hills Park, Los Angeles
Srila Prabhupada is accompanied by Dr. Singh, Karandhara dasa adhikari and other students.
“Srila Prabhupada. [holding a rose in his hand]. Can any scientist create a flower like this in the laboratory?
Dr. Singh. That is not possible.
Srila Prabhupada. No, it is not. Just see how wonderfully Krishna’s energy is working! No scientist can create a flower like this in his laboratory. They cannot create even a few grains of sand, yet they claim to possess the most advanced intellects in the universe. This is foolish.
Dr. Singh. They take matter from Krishna, manipulate it, and then claim that they have created something wonderful.
Srila Prabhupada. At least if they would admit that they have taken the matter from Krishna, that would be good. We understand that everything comes from Krishna.”
