Hari-śauri: Śrīla Prabhupāda, if the human form is insignificant compared to demigods, but still, it is very much desired, this human form of life, even by the demigods?
Prabhupāda: Yes, because very good chance of realizing God in the human form of life. Just like difference between Western countries and India. India, a very quick chance of realization of God. The atmosphere is so nice. So this planet is good for God realization, and the best place is in India.
Hari-śauri: Our temples, they are considered to have the same atmosphere?
Prabhupāda: Oh, yes.
Hari-śauri: To be just as potent as the holy places in India?
Prabhupāda: Oh, yes. You can create that potency anywhere within this planet.
Devotee (3): Śrīla Prabhupāda, you were saying yesterday that the rains, by the rains all good things come, and the rains come because of good yajña. So in this planet everybody is meat-eating, or in this country everybody is performing sinful activities.
Prabhupāda: Therefore it is decreasing. The more you are becoming sinful, the rain will decrease.
Devotee (3): So it is decreasing now.
Prabhupāda: Yes. And at the end there will be no rain. Then this whole planet will be ablaze with fire. That is the beginning of destruction. Everything will die—all trees, plants, animals, everything. It will be made into ashes by the fire. And then there will be rain, and the ashes will be melted, and the whole universe will be finished.
Devotee (2): I read, too, Śrīla Prabhupāda, that in the time of Mahārāja Yudhiṣṭhira there was only rainfall in the nighttime. Is this true?
Devotee (2): Rain would fall in the nighttime so that...
Prabhupāda: No. Who said that nighttime?
Śrutakīrti: It mentions in Kṛṣṇa book that in the evening it would rain.
Devotee (2): So as not to disturb the activity of the inhabitants through the daytime.
Prabhupāda: Yes, that is the way. If night-time it rains and daytime there is sunshine, then the land becomes very fertile to produce. Yes. There is a common saying in Bengal, dine jal rātre tārā sei janme sukha dhārā(?). If it rains heavily during daytime and at night you see the stars, then you should know there will be scarcity of rain. There will be scarcity of rain and scarcity of food grains. Best thing is at night there must be heavy rain, and daytime, there should be sunshine. Then the field will be very fertile.
