Prabhupada: "...morning," what is the meaning?
Sudama: Well, it's just actually become an expression of greeting. Literally, of course, it means that "I am pleased to see you, happy to meet you. Good morning."
Prabhupada: Anyone else?
Satsvarupa: In English when we say, "Goodbye," that means "God be with you." Some God consciousness.
Pradyumna: They say, "Good morning. Good morning to you."
Bali-mardana: Like one pig grunting at another pig.
Prabhupada: "Good morning" means... Because it is English word... In England every morning is bad morning, because it is cloud. When they see one day that cloud is clear, they say, "Good morning." [japa] [break] ...similarly, a good soul means when there is no maya, then he's good soul.
Bali-mardana: Or cloud.
Prabhupada: Huh? Cloud. Maya is cloud. So what is that cloud?
Sudama: Forgetfulness of Krsna.
Prabhupada: That cloud is when a soul desires to become the master. That is cloud.
