Hong Kong they can’t forever stay here, because it is the property of China. Ultimately they want to take it back, sooner or later, you see. Although everybody is hoping will be extended for more and more time, but they have to pay dearly for that, if they want that. And there is no absolute security. Anytime any crazy person gets in charge of the government he may do anything. Right? This is the situation. But we try to extend on and on. But if you can transform the body, then also you become free. Just like somehow or another, although this was originally this was China, they transformed it into a British colony. So everything here is not living under Chinese law but under British law. So then everything has a nicer situation according to material standards. In the same way if you can transform this body by owing allegiance to Krsna, then just like a magnet, if you put iron on a magnet you can take that iron also and pick up other iron, that iron also becomes like a extension of the magnet. In the same way, this body when it is engaged in Krsna’s service through bhakti-yoga then you can also immediately become freed from all the material laws, all the other laws that ordinarily affect the other bodies and be directly under the spiritual transcendental free position.
