1. Misguided by the bodily concept, like animals

    Prabhupada: Our ideal is that we have got this body, and there are some bodily necessities. That is the prime necessities. So we do not neglect these necessities of the body. But our culture is spiritual culture. Generally, people, being disturbed by the bodily necessities, do not inquire about the spiritual identity. Actually this is the distinction between human life and animal life. Our real purpose of this mission is to educate people about his spiritual identity. All people, they are misguided by the idea that he is this body, everyone, all over the world, especially in the Western countries.

    Girl: Why?

    Prabhupada: Because rascal fools, they have no knowledge, just like cats and dogs, animals.
