Devotee: So we say that everything has a cause.

Prabhupāda: Yes.

Devotee: But then we have causeless mercy. So would that be chance?

Prabhupāda: Eh?

Devotee: We have also causeless mercy, meeting the pure devotee. Is that a chance?

Prabhupāda: No. I... We don't accept that chance. The causeless is a mercy. Causeless mercy is the cause.

Devotee (2): Yeah. The mercy is the cause.

Prabhupāda: The mercy may be causeless, but the mercy is the cause.

Devotee: But the which is the cause?

Devotee (3): The mercy is the cause.

Devotee (2): That's a cause.

Devotee (3): You did nothing to deserve it, but it's caused your good fortune.

Devotee (4): Jaya.
