Death Surely Comes

That is prakrteh kriyamanani [Bg. 3.27]. Nature is so strong that you must die. "I am very strong." You may be very strong, that's all right. There is a, I mean to say, joking story that one man thought how to avoid death—Hiranyakasipu. So he thought that the Yamaraja is the superintendent of death, he comes to take. So I shall make such policy that he may not come to me. What is that policy? "Bring some stool. I shall smear over my body, and out of bad smell he will not come." So he began to smear stool on his body at the time of death.

So this is going on. They are making body very stout and strong so they will survive. Nobody will survive, sir, unless he is Krishna conscious.

Thank you very much.
