1006) Whether I know the happiness of dog is not standard of happiness! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!
——– Prabhupäda: They are practically seeing and still not believe.
Gurukrpä: He doesn’t have such a nice house.
Devotee (1): He accepts the result, but he won’t take the process. He sees that they’ve given up everything he is trying to defeat—which is sinful activity, illicit sex, intoxication—but he won’t take the process.
Gurukrpä: One reporter told you that she was happy, and you said, “Well, if it is happiness, then it’s simply happiness of the dog.” So they have become satisfied with that standard of happiness.
Prabhupäda: So why they create this botanical garden? If they are satisfied with the happiness of a dog, then why they spend so much money for this botanical garden? Hmm? Let them be satisfied like dog, lie down on the street. Why this sense of botanical garden? [break] …tendency for improving, artificially they are curbing down. Evolution there is. Artificially they say, “No. This is satisfied.” Why they are making big, big skyscraper building? Let them remain like dog. [break]
Gurukrpä: …same for all their purposes, but because they have superior intelligence, they could make a nice facility to enjoy. —————————
