Nehru uvaca

Русский перевод

While commenting on this particular verse, we have in our presence the statement of a great modern politician who has recently died and left his will, which discloses his poor fund of knowledge of the codes of God mentioned by Maharaja Pariksit. The politician was so ignorant of the codes of God that he writes: "I do not believe in any such ceremonies, and to submit to them, even as a matter of form, would be hypocrisy and an attempt to delude ourselves and others... I have no religious sentiment in the matter."

(From Srila Prabhupada's purport to SB 1.17.10-11. The politician referred to is Jawaharlal Nehru, who died on May 27, 1964.)
