Four kinds of sinful activities: illicit sex, and intoxication, and unnecessary killing of animals, and gambling. This . . . all the slaughterhouses of the world are being maintained unnecessarily. That is recruiting simply sins. They are eating sin, and therefore the world is in trouble. Simply committing. There is no necessity of killing animals. But here in India they are killing ten thousand cows daily, what to speak of Western countries. The people are so much addicted to sinful activities. How they can be elevated? They are condemned. Only this movement, Kṛṣṇa consciousness, if they take to this movement, they can be saved.
Otherwise, there is no saving. They must cycle round the 8,400,000 species of life—sometimes very happy, sometimes very sorry; sometimes Brahmā, sometimes the germ in the stool. This is going on, changing bodies one after another, just like if we change our dress. This will go on so long one is not completely free from the sinful activities. Unless he enters into the kingdom of God, this cycle of birth and death will go on. Only in the spiritual sky there is no birth, death, old age and disease. And as soon as you are out of the spiritual sky, these four things will . . . you may live for thousands of years—that doesn't matter—but you have to die. That is the law of material nature.
