Giriraj Swami : I said, “Srila Prabhupada, what is it like to be with Krishna?” When Srila Prabhupada replied, I thought he said, “That’s inconceivable,” but Hansadutta thought Prabhupada said, “That’s confidential.” Anyway, we drove to Harvard Divinity School, where Srila Prabhupada gave a brilliant lecture to a group of proud students. At the end of the lecture Srila Prabhupada said, “Any questions?” and many hands shot up. One young man said, “What is the utility of Krishna consciousness?” He mentioned how the Russian Revolution did some good for the people, but he could not see what good Krishna consciousness would do. Srila Prabhupada said, “Since the Russian Revolution, are the people in Russia happy?” The student said, “No.” Srila Prabhupada said, “Then what is the use? Even if things get better for some time, again after some time they will get worse, so what is the use?” Then he explained the benefit of Krishna consciousness. Another young man asked, “You say we should chant Hare Krishna Hare Krishna, but couldn’t we get the same effect by just counting numbers?” Srila Prabhupada replied, “You can try counting and after you’re tired of counting you can try chanting.” Everyone laughed. Then someone asked, “Have you seen God?” Srila Prabhupada said, “If I tell you that I have seen God, will you believe me?” At first the student didn’t understand. Srila Prabhupada repeated, “If I tell you that I have seen God, will you believe me?” The boy said, “No.” Srila Prabhupada said, “Then what is the use of the question?” One after the other, quickly and without any hesitation, Prabhupada completely defeated all the opponents. The students were stunned, and the whole room became hushed. They realized that they were in the presence of a superior personality.
