SB-5.5.1-2–“Don’t Live the Life of a Hog”–Bombay, March 25, 1977
663) Whether I know for what human life is meant! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!
—————— And for that purpose you require to execute tapasya. Tapasa brahmacaryena samena damena va [SB 6.1.13]. These are the injunction of the sastras. Human life is meant for tapasya, not to imitate the hogs and dogs. This is not human life. This is Vedic culture. The Krsna consciousness movement is tryng to give this Vedic culture all over the world, but they are after hogs and dogs. What can be done? This is very difficult job. But still we have to do, because we have placed ourself [ourselves] to become servant of Krsna. Never mind we have to face so many dangerous positions; still we have to do this thankless task. “My dear brothers, do not be hogs and dogs. Be a saintly person.” This is our mission. That is India’s culture. —————-
