Actually that is the fact. We are traveling all over the universe. Not only that we have come to this planet. We have traveled many other planets. Otherwise, how Kṛṣṇa says bhrāmayan, wandering; sarva-bhūtāni, all living entities—either in the higher planetary system or this lower planetary system? And how he is traveling? Yantrārūḍhāni. This yantra, this body. He is given body.

Not only that We Have Come to this Planet. We Have
Traveled Many Other Planets
- Prabhupāda 0853


So actually that is the fact. We are traveling all over the universe. Not only that we have come to this planet. We have traveled many other planets. Otherwise, how Kṛṣṇa says bhrāmayan, wandering; sarva-bhūtāni, all living entities—either in the higher planetary system or this lower planetary system? And how he is traveling? Yantrārūḍhāni. This yantra, this body. He is given body. Now if I want to go to the moon planet and other higher planet, yes, you will get. But not this yantra, your so-called teeny sputnik. No. You have to take the yantra, the car, the vehicle, from Kṛṣṇa. He will give you if you want, if you are serious, that if you want to go to the moon planet, then you pray to Kṛṣṇa that "Give me a yantra, or a machine, I can go to the moon planet." Then you can go. Otherwise you will unnecessarily spend money and try to go somewhere and bring some dust, and you will say, "Now I…, we are triumphant." That's all. But if you want to go there seriously, then you have to prepare yourself in this life. Pray to the Supreme Lord, who has created all this moon and sun and other and this planet, and He will make you befitting, qualified to go there. You cannot go to the sun planet. It is very, very hot, high temperature. Similarly, it is very, very cold in the moon planet. So how you can go with this body? This body means this machine.

Then you have to accept another machine. That is the process. That is the process. That is stated in the Bhagavad-gītā:

yānti deva-vratā devān
pitṟn yānti pitṛ-vratāḥ
bhūtejyā yānti bhūtāni
mad-yājino 'pi yānti mām
(BG 9.25)

Everything is clearly stated there, that if you want to go to the heavenly planets or higher planetary system, they are in the, in front of you. You can see them, that the sun planet is there; but you are so unqualified you cannot go there. But the thing is there. It is not fictitious. The temperature is there, śāstra description, yac-cakṣur eṣa savitā sakala-grahāṇāṁ (Bs. 5.52). Savitā means the sun. He is the eye of all the planets, because without sunshine you cannot see. You are very much proud of your eyes, but as soon as there is no sun, then you are blind. Therefore, yac-cakṣur eṣa savitā sakala-grahāṇāṁ. All, all the planets, unless there is sunlight you cannot see. And the sun planet is there in front of you. Every morning you are getting the sunshine. Why don’t you go there? Huh? Go. You have got nice 747. (laughter) That you cannot. Then you have to pray. Īśvara, Kṛṣṇa, is within your heart, and if you fervently pray, He is very kind. Therefore He gives you different types of vehicle. Bhrāmayan sarva-bhūtāni yantrārūḍhāni māyayā (BG 18.61). Bhrāmayan means making him wandering in every planet, in every species of life. Sarva-bhūtāni: all species of life. There are different types of birds, different types of beasts, different types of human being. This is called vicitra, varieties. God's creation is varieties.

So if you want to go somewhere within this material world or beyond this material world, beyond this material world: paras tasmāt tu bhāvo 'nyo 'vyakto 'vyaktāt sanātanaḥ (BG 8.20). Kṛṣṇa giving you the information that there is another material nature. That is spiritual nature. Just like we have got this experience, although we could not go anywhere, but we see, by studying geography, that there are many, many hundred, thousands and millions of planets. Similarly, there is another nature. There also, similarly. The same—not only same; it is three times more than in this material world. This is only God's one part of creation. Ekāṁśena sthito jagat.

atha vā bahunaitena
kiṁ jñātena tavārjuna
viṣṭabhyāham idaṁ kṛtsnam
ekāṁśena sthito jagat
(BG 10.42)
