By Suresvara dasa
By Krsna’s mercy I found that no one could defeat me in any argument; no matter how educated they might be by material estimation. I spoke to a college professor once when I was selling books in Knoxville Tennessee. He said he was a scientist. He looked at my devotee dress and said our movement was just a bunch of sentimentalist - just dancing and chanting in the street. I stated something which I had read that Srila Prabhupada had spoken word-for-word: âThis Krishna Consciousness is a science to understand what is the difference between a dead body and a living bodyâ. Nothing extraordinary about this statement, at least on the surface. But, when I said the words there was suddenly a mild thundering in the sky. The air crackled as if it was charged with electricity and the wind began to howl. Astonished, the professor looked at me and I looked at him. Both of us felt as if our hairs were standing on end. He said, âGive me all those books, I must have those books!” I sold him 12 hardbound Bhagavad-gitas.
