Indian man (5): Krsna consciousness is the oldest teaching of God, or Krsna.Prabhupada: Yes. That is mayy asakta-manah. That is explained.
Indian man (5): But the Gita was written about five thousand years ago.
Prabhupada: No. You have not read Bhagavad-gita. Did you read? Did you read Bhagavad-gita?
Indian man (5): Yes, I read some portion.
Prabhupada: Then why do you say like that, five thousand years?
Indian man (5): All the scriptures were written (indistinct).
Prabhupada: Hm? What does he say?
Indian man (5): Then how come in the locational(?), archaeological and ontological records, Krsna consciousness is not mentioned by other religions?
Prabhupada: Krsna consciousness is always there. You are calculating with reference to your age, but Krsna consciousness is there. In the Fourth Chapter, you read, imam vivasvate yogam proktavan aham avyayam: [Bg. 4.1] "I spoke this Krsna consciousness science first of all to the sun-god." Then how do you say five thousand years? There is reference to the Manu. And if we take the, all these advanced calculation, then it becomes that forty millions of years ago Bhagavad-gita was spoken by Krsna to the sun-god. Have you got forty millions' history? (laughter) So don't bring it into historical reference. It is eternal.
