University education

    Posted on January 4, 2018

The education is that a university student, if he is informed, "If you live irresponsibly, then you may become dog next life," so they say, "What is the wrong if I become a dog?" [laughter] This is the result of education. He doesn't care. He is thinking, "If I get the life of a dog, I will have no restriction of my sex life on the street." That's it. He is thinking that is advancement. "If now there is restriction, now unrestrictedly if I get sex life on the street..." And they are coming gradually, that advancement.

So this is the position. So they do not believe in the next life, and what to speak of cats' and dogs' life. "Never mind." Everything is very dark. Therefore, unless we take to Krsna consciousness movement, the human civilization is doomed. It is not human civilization. Human civilization is responsible life. Actually, we are being educated, we go to school, to college, to become responsible man. So this responsibility should be, "How to stop this repetition of birth."

From Srila Prabhupada's lecture on Srimad-Bhagavatam 6.1.12 — June 25, 1975, Los Angeles
