From “MEMORIES OF SRILA PRABHUPADA” class by HH Krishna-kshetra Swami
Story happens at L’Ecole de Architectur, Paris, July 1972:
At the end of one of lectures Srila Prabhupada asked for questions. One middle-aged man – apparently a Christian – stood up and said, “I am afraid there is no religiosity present here whatsoever!”
Srila Prabhupada responded immediately, with a look of genuine concern, “Oh, you are afraid?”
His simple question so clearly cut to the core of the man’s ignorance that the man was left dumbfounded and simply sat down without a further word. By his simple, disarming question Srila Prabhupada communicated volumes. One felt how unfortunate is such a fearful, confused conditioned soul that he cannot take advantage of the pure transcendental teachings – the very essence of all religion – being delivered by a fully realized person full of compassion for such a fool.
