Tamala Krsna: The materialistic people say that... When they see someone in the detached position, they say, "He is impoverished." They are so confused that they conclude the opposite.
Tamala Krsna: Impoverished means they are poor.
Prabhupada: Then what is the poor? What you are rich? You are whole day working day and night, and we are not working, getting our prasadam. I am poverty-stricken, or you are poverty-stricken? You rascal, whole day you are working...
Brahmananda: For a dry biscuit.
Prabhupada: ...like an ass, and we are getting, sitting, chanting Hare Krsna and getting our food. So you are poverty-stricken or I am poverty-stricken?
Tamala Krsna: A poverty-stricken man has to work very hard.
Laksmi-narayana: But they will say, "Well..."
Prabhupada: They will say... First of all you see. You try to understand that this rascal is working day and night twenty-four hours for getting his food, and we are simply chanting Hare Krsna and getting our food. So he is poverty-stricken or I am poverty-stricken?
Brahmananda: That means we're the rich men.
Prabhupada: I am rich man.
Brahmananda: Rich man doesn't have to work, and everything comes.
Prabhupada: Yes, that is rich man.
