"Our presentation is that this conjugal love between man and woman is not unnatural. It is quite natural, because it is in the Absolute Truth, as we find from Vedic description, that the Absolute Truth, Personality of Godhead, is engaged in conjugal loving affair, Rādhā-Kṛṣṇa. But the same Rādhā-Kṛṣṇa love matter has permeated through matter. Therefore it is perverted reflection. Here in this material world, the so-called love is not actual love; it is lust. Here the male and female are attracted not by love but by lust. So in this Kṛṣṇa consciousness society, because we are trying to approach the Absolute Truth, the lust propensity has to be converted into pure love. That is the proposal."
Prabhupāda: So I'll have to transmigrate. So I can transmigrate to the higher planetary system. I can transmigrate amongst the ghost and evil spirit. Or I can transmigrate ordinary life. Or I can transmigrate to the kingdom of God. Everything is open. George: It's a good deal. It's a good, fair deal. Prabhupāda: Ah. So why I shall not transmigrate to..., back to home, back to Godhead? Why shall I go to the... This is the policy. If I have to endeavor in this life for my next life, why not endeavor for next life go back to Kṛṣṇa and live with Him eternally, blissfully? Eh? If I have to work for some next life, then why not work... And it is so easy in this age. Kīrtanād eva kṛṣṇasya mukta-saṅgaḥ paraṁvrajet (SB 12.3.51). Simply by chanting this Hare Kṛṣṇa mantra he becomes liberated from all contamination and goes back to home, back to Godhead.
