SAINT PAUL'S CATHEDRAL.

SAINT PAUL'S CATHEDRAL.

Another symptom of Kali-yuga is avrittyä nyäya-daurbalyam pänditye cäpalam vacah: “Those without money will be unable to get justice, and anyone who can cleverly juggle words will be considered a scholar.” [Srimad-Bhägavatam 12.2.4] If you have no money, then you will never get justice in court. This is Kali-yuga. Nowadays even the high-court judges are taking bribes to give you a favorable judgment. But if you have no money, then don’t go to court. And pänditye cäpalam vacah. If a man can talk expertly—it doesn’t matter what he says, and nobody has to understand it—then he is a pandita. He is a learned scholar. [Imitating gibberish:] ” Like this, if you go on speaking, no one will understand you. [Laughter.] Yet people will say, “Ah, see how learned he is.” [Laughter.] This is actually happening. There are so many rascals writing books, but if you ask one of them to explain what he has understood, he’ll say, “Oh, it is inexplicable.” These things are going on.
