| Prabhupāda: The goal of life is to go back to home, back to Godhead. If they do not go back to home, back to Godhead, then remain here, become a tree. Stand, for five thousand years. Sthāvarā lakṣa-viṁśati (Padma Purāṇa). Two millions you have to pass through. And each species, some thousands of years. And such two millions. So, how many years? Hmm? There are two millions of varieties of vegetables. And each item, if you pass, say hundred years. Then?|
Puṣṭa Kṛṣṇa: Two hundred million.
Prabhupāda: Two hundred millions years only for passing through the vegetables. Then you become, what is called, insects. That is also 1,100,000. In this way you get chance again to become a human being, and these rascals are wasting, four-wheel dog. (laughter) Dogs have four-legged, and we have four-wheeled. That's all. (laughter)
