Prabhupāda: (Bengali) Kṛṣṇa baro doyāmoy, koribāre jihwā jay (Prasāda-sevāya I). Kṛṣṇa-prasāda . . . (Bengali conversation) The real fact is that this jīvo jīvasya jīvanam (SB 1.13.47), one life is food for another life. That is nature's way. But one has to pass through so many varieties of life, evolution. Jalajā nava-lakṣāṇi (Padma Purāṇa). How many millions of years we'll take to evolve to become a human being? Then he gets chance of Kṛṣṇa consciousness. Payeche mānava janma, mano rañjanam alpa.(?). Bahūnāṁ janmanām ante (BG 7.19). Emona janma, this janma, manuṣya-janma. And if we miss and don't get Kṛṣṇa, again glide down. Mām aprāpya mṛtyu-saṁsāra (BG 9.3). Again you fall down. I'll eat you; you eat me. And the aquatic, 900,000 species, varieties of life. The same struggle—one fish eating another fish. Struggle within the water. A small fish can understand three miles away a big fish is coming. It is all stated in the Bhāgavatam. This struggle is going on. Then in the jungle, animals. The man-eater trees are there in Africa. Trees, man, eat man.
Tamāla Kṛṣṇa: How do they do that?
Prabhupāda: You go, and if you are in touch on that tree, then you cannot get out. You'll die and you'll become dead.
Tamāla Kṛṣṇa: They eat you?
Prabhupāda: Yes, the tree.
Tamāla Kṛṣṇa: They eat through the roots.
Prabhupāda: Yes. Spider, big, big spider.
Tamāla Kṛṣṇa: There's a thing called the Venus Fly Trap. It's this special plant, and if anything goes near it, it goes like that. Maybe they have big ones in Africa.
