What is the Urgency of This Human Birth?

Question:

While preaching I have come across several persons who doubt the cycle of birth and death and when the point comes up about having to go through millions of births in the animal realm, (or any realm for that matter) before coming back to the human platform, I often hear; "Well I was born in this human body and don’t remember my other births, so if this same chance will happen again someday what is the urgency of this human birth?

So basically they are saying they do not remember the suffering of other lives, yet all of a sudden they were born in this human form where things are pretty nice, and they are wondering, what need is there to change. What does it matter if they take so many animal births as long as they don’t remember, since one day they will just be back in a human form again?

So I am wondering how to defeat this argument.

How Women Should Offer Obeisances

June 4, 2012 |

Question: Certain individuals in ISKCON believe that women can offer dandavat pranams (fully prostrate on ground in a rod like fashion). To support the argument they quote SB 8.17.5 where in Aditi fell to the ground like a rod to offer the Lord her respectful obeisances.
