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.

Glorification Turns to Blasphemy …

January 1, 2011 |

Question: Could you please speak something regarding the verse and purport of CC Madhya-lila 10.182, in which Srila Prabhupada writes that "The Lord herein confirms that if one is overestimated, glorification is just another form of blasphemy."

Will It Lead to Guru Groupism?

September 27, 2011 |

Question: When the disciples hear some criticism (about another sannyasi), from their spiritual master (especially in a lecture), it may happen that they also develop a critical attitude towards that sannyasi and speak things like “this sannyasi is like this, that sannyasi is like that etc…). Do you think this may promote the ongoing guru groupism even more as the devotees will start thinking that my guru is the best and the rest have faults?
