In Krishna consciousness fasting and feasting are the same.

In Krishna consciousness fasting and feasting are the same.

Rāmeśvara: (in car) ...that in Kṛṣṇa consciousness fasting and feasting are the same.
Prabhupāda: Yes.
Rāmeśvara: Could you explain that?
Prabhupāda: Fasting and feasting is the same?
Rāmeśvara: That what I, they told me.
Prabhupāda: Yes, it is in Kṛṣṇa consciousness, for Kṛṣṇa. For Kṛṣṇa, you fast or feast, the same thing. Better fast. (laughter)
Rāmeśvara: [break] ...by the devotees, is that in the spiritual world every day is feasting.
Prabhupāda: And there is no fasting. Fasting is recommended when a man is diseased. When he's in health, there is feasting. So spiritual world means health. Why there should be fasting?
