Animal Life - an essential subject
There are two kinds of life, animal life and human life. If one does not take the opportunity of using their human life for cultivation of knowledge and religion, they are no different from animals and will gradually decline into animal life. To work hard for eating is animal life rather than human life. Human life should be very peaceful for cultivating spiritual knowledge, without any hard work. That is human life, not working hard like hogs and dogs throughout the whole day finding some food and shelter. This human form of life is especially meant for inquiring about the Absolute Truth, which is impossible in animal life. Without God realization there is no difference between human life and animal life.
