A Summary of the Srimad Bhagavata Mahapuranam-2-10.



Chapter-2. The Process of Creation-10.


A tree has to be a tree, a snake has to be a snake, a frog has to be a frog, and an elephant has to be an elephant.

Whatever one is, one has a right to exist.

The right to exist is the prerogative given by God’s ordinance that no one can destroy another living being, because each one has a right to exist.

That is the important point in the evolutionary process.

In every stage, we find that all stages are equally important.

Every stage is a level of reality—a kingdom, we may say, a kind of principality or empire which is inhabited by citizens of that particular stage, and all those citizens are as valid as citizens of any other realm.


We consider human beings as everything.

We think of peace in the world—world peace.

Generally, as human beings, we only think of peace for humanity, and not for lions and snakes.

We do not think of their peace, as it is not our intention.

We do not want peace for any animal or insect in the world; our attitude is that they can take care of themselves.

We have roundtable conferences only for the peace of mankind because man can think only as man, and he cannot think as any other species.
