1009) Whether I know there are different degrees of Consciousness! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!
————- Gurukrpä: So they answer that “If you’re happy, then what’s wrong with that?”
Prabhupäda: Yes, that class you are here. You go on with that happiness. But we are not satisfied with this. You are rascal. You are happy in that way, but we are not. That is the difference between you and me.
Gurukrpä: Happiness of the fool.
Devotee (1): Sometimes they say that pain is part of life.
Prabhupäda: Yes. Let them say, because they will have to suffer. Unless they think like that, how they will suffer?
Devotee (2): What about on the hellish planets? Do they know they’re suffering there?
Prabhupäda: Just like to an animal, whipping is nothing. And for a man, to show the whip is sufficient. So there are different degrees of consciousness. Even a child, he’ll be afraid by seeing the whip, and the animal, actually being whipped, doesn’t care. That is the difference. ———————-
