where is our hope?

Sometimes doctors go into plague areas and they try to help people who are suffering from epidemics. But then if… that’s like the last hope. But then if the people who are the plagued, if they kill the doctor then where is their hope, you see? This is the type of, they call biting the hand that feeds you.

Even the animals they learn not to bite the hand who feeds them. Even you can train wild tigers, lions and other animals to respect the person who feeds tem, as long as the person does not treat them badly, they generally speaking after according to certain training they will become trained. It’s only the human being even after all good instruction, still they are… it’s said that an envious man is worse than animal because you can hardly change him. So this enviousness is a very dangerous thing. It’s a very dangerous thing especially if we uh, commit offences to the holy name and the devotees who are preaching the holy name etc., these ten offences.
