One Yogi, he wrote that one of our Prime Minister’s took birth in Sweden as a dog, his next life. He said that there was a millionaire there, who had two dogs, one black dog and one white dog, who were fed several kilos of meat every day and well groomed and cared for and the Prime minister took birth as the white dog. Who can say, if it is your fault? Whether he is playing a joke or he is studying from his own insight?, but actually that could happen, if a person is wanting a comfortable life, then he may get such a life. No anxiety, no fear, plenty of servants and food, you don’t have to worry about anything. To be a Prime Minister is a big headache. All the time people are trying to take away your position, to get the chair. So if he desired like that he could be. You can say… what is that, is that progress? So Krishna consciousness, as Prabhupada wanted to actually inject life into the civilization.
