"Most of the Western country, they are Christian. So the Christians
believe in ...Lord Jesus Christ as son of God. But we are presenting
the father, God Himself. So there is no contradiction. If there is
son, there must be a father also. Without father, there cannot be son.
So if you believe in the son, then you must believe in the father
also. The father is Kṛṣṇa. Kṛṣṇa says in the Bhagavad-gītā, [Bg.
14.44] He is the seed-giving father for all living entities. So Kṛṣṇa
is for everyone.
Don't think that Kṛṣṇa, as it is stated in your English dictionary,
"Kṛṣṇa is a Hindu God." He's not Hindu, He's not Muslim, or He's not
Christian. He's God. God is neither Hindu nor Muslim nor Christian. It
is bodily designations, "I am Hindu, you are Christian." This is
bodily... Just like dress. You have got some black coat. Another has
got some white coat. That does not meant we are different because we
are in different coat or shirt. As human being, we are all sons of
God. We are one. That is the conception. So at the present moment, we
have divided the world on account of this shirt and coat. That is not.
That is not good. Actually, the whole world or the whole universe
belongs to God. This is Kṛṣṇa consciousness "
