"Similarly, when there is catastrophe in the world,
the persons like snakes, cruel, envious,
they suffer first like a snake"
So the samsara davanala-lidha-loka, these eight stanzas of Visvanatha Cakravarti Thakura is very important. We sing daily. That's very good. This world is davanala. Just like Rsabhadeva, He wanted fire, He did not require any matches. No. Fire can be... By His will there will be fire. Formerly yajna fire was also ignited. What is that wood? Arani, yes. Not with matches. So it is ordinary thing, the friction of the bamboo, electricity. It creates electricity by friction. The electricity is also friction. Similarly, fire is created and the dry leaves of bamboo tree, they set in fire. Then, gradually, the whole forest is in blazing fire. And especially the snakes, they are the first sufferers. Because they remain on the ground and there are dry leaves and it takes fire very quickly, so they cannot fly away. Other animals, they can... Nobody can escape, but they can try because they can go fast. But the snake... Similarly, when there is catastrophe in the world, the persons like snakes, cruel, envious, they suffer first like a snake. Canakya Pandita has said, sarpah krurah khalah krurah. There are two envious living entities, very dangerous. What are they? One is snake. And another? The man whose habit is like snake. Without any fault he will bite. Without any fault.
So just like we are preaching Krsna consciousness. So what is our fault? That we are trying to make men--no illicit sex, no gambling, no meat-eating, no intoxication, and they take it otherwise. They take: "It is very dangerous." Without any fault they are finding fault. This is snake. Sarpah krurah khalah krurah. No fault, but still fault-finding and giving us trouble. So you'll find so many persons, without any fault they'll bite. A snake, without any fault... You are passing, and you are taking some fruit from the tree. If there is snake, it will bite--the krurah. So Canakya Pandita said, "There are two, two kinds of krurah, envious living entities. One is the snake; another is the man-snake, or a man habituated to the snake quality." So sarpah krurah khalah krurah. But Canakya Pandita said, "This man snake is more dangerous than the animal snake." Sarpat kruratarah khalah. Why? Now, mantrausadhi-vasah sarpah khalah kena nivaryate: "You can subdue the snake by chanting a snake mantra or some drug, jadi-bhuti(?), but this man-snake cannot be subdued." It is very, very dangerous.

Note: So when the lapse of 50 years is up [See following link After a Lapse of 50 Years ] and Goddess Kali starts her business the man snakes from the Tamal sinister movement, Swindle Turley law firm, apa-gaudiya mutt, PADA, IRM, and all other compromisers and haters of the powerful authorized agent of the Lord, will suffer first and longest.
When all these man snakes are cleared off the face of the earth people will come to sense and preaching will be very nice. Jai PRABHUPADA !!!
Dhananjaya: And after the war what will be the result?
Prabhupada: After the war they will come to sense.
