One world, one king, one God

Русский перевод

Pariksit Maharaja was the emperor of the whole world. Not a teeny village or something. And that empire also, without any disturbance. He was so powerful that nobody could go against him. Rajye ca avikale. Avikale. Vikala means "broken" or "disturbed." But his kingdom was never broken or disturbed. Now the whole world is broken and disturbed, at the present moment. They have got so many countries, independent countries. That means the world is broken into pieces. Formerly there was no such piecework. One world, one king, one God, Krsna. One scripture, Vedas. One civilization, varnasrama-dharma. Perfect civilization, God conscious. Happy civilization. Now they are broken, disturbed. It was not the case formerly.

From Srila Prabhupada's lecture on Srimad-Bhagavatam 2.4.2 -- June 26, 1972, Los Angeles
