That’s the age of Kṛṣṇa consciousness

Woman Guest: It seems that most of the devotees are young people, persons under thirty, under twenty-five. Why is this so? Why hasn’t the movement spread? Is this a deliberate thing, or why do you feel it hasn’t spread to parents or to older people?
Prabhupāda: Why the young people go to university?
Woman Guest: I’m sorry?
Prabhupāda: Why in the university you’ll find all the students are young boys and girls? Why?
Woman Guest: That’s the age of education.
Prabhupāda: That’s the age of Kṛṣṇa consciousness (laughter). Old fools, they cannot change their opinion. (laughter)
Woman Guest: Why just in the last five years?
Prabhupāda: Because they have got now. Before this there was no such thing. Now they have got it, they’re coming.
Woman Guest: Were you trying before then?
Prabhupāda: No. Before there was no such movement in your country.
Woman Guest: I know, I know. But why did you just now…
Prabhupāda: So now they have got the thing. They are wanting it. As they have got it, they are coming.
