"Just like in our ordinary life, if we commit some sinful activity and if we plead in the court, 'My dear judge, I did not know the law,' so this kind of pleading will not help him. Ignorance is no excuse. Therefore human life is distinct from animal life. If we live in human life without caring for the supreme laws, then we are destined to suffer. Therefore in the human society there is a system of religion and scripture. It is the duty of the human being to understand the laws of the nature, the injunction in the śāstras and live very honestly according to the direction."
"In the material world, 'This is pāpa, this is puṇya'—this is mental concoction. Everything is pāpa. Dvaite bhadrābhadra sakali samāna. The world of duality, material world, we have manufactured something, 'This is good; this is bad', 'This is moral; this is immoral'. But Caitanya-caritāmṛta author said, 'These are all mental concoction. Everything is the same—material'. Material means bad. But we have made some convention: 'This is good; this is bad'."
