- The creation of the materialism is only one-fourth... What happened to the other three-fourths?
- The descriptions of Goloka Vrndavana, that even the dust is personal... So we have experience of personal form. Even Krsna's form is personal. How is the dust of Vrndavana personal? How is it individual living entity?
- The evolution stops when the spirit soul reaches the eternal abode in the spiritual (world)?

- Tigers (even the tigers, they are also devotees)?

- When they go back to Godhead, some people can remember their past lives? In the mind? I thought the mind was left behind
- When we are in the spiritual sky and serving Krsna, we have a perfect relationship with Krsna, what causes us to fall down in the material world, because we are already serving Krsna?
- Why couldn't spirits grow without taking this body? Why couldn't spirits grow in the spiritual world without taking this material body.
- Why does the moon appear in pictures of Krsna yet the abode of Krsna is described as having no need of sunlight or moonlight?
