"So you are coming, I mean to say, the Indians who are present here, from a country where Krsna appeared. It is a great fortune for you that you have taken your birth in India. It is not ordinary fortune. So why? To take Indian birth, to take birth in India, automatically they are advanced in spiritual knowledge. Still, so much fallen condition of India, still, you go to a village, they will very easily understand Krsna consciousness without any advanced education. Because by birthright they have got the knowledge. In Vrndavana, when we walk on the street, the thela-walla, the cartsmen, the milkmen carrying milk, immediately they'll offer namaskara, "Swamiji." The other day, I think you were present? We were walking. So we entered one field, just for walking. So the villagers, the cultivators, they came to congratulate us. To receive us. "Swamiji, it is our great fortune that you have come to our field." But in this country if I would have entered in another place, perhaps would have brought charge of trespass or might shot down. So that is the different system. That by birthright they are Krsna conscious."
