Save Yourself, Spidey

A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami

Mary JaneSrila Prabhupada May 6, 2007 by DAVID GERMAIN, Associated Press Women just mean trouble for superheroes
LOS ANGELES -- Lois Lane is in constant need of rescue by Superman. Batman's various girlfriends always require saving. In "Spider-Man 3," girl-next-door Mary Jane once again is used by villains as bait for the web-slinging superhero, who also has to rescue another damsel in distress with whom he has a flirtation.

Forget Kryptonite. Are women the real Achilles' heel for superheroes? Would these caped and masked crusaders be better off as loveless loners?

Romeo & Juliet Hansadutta das

In English literature we have the story of Romeo and Juliet, which appears to be a very lofty and noble affair; but on the other hand, if Romeo and Juliet had lived to be eighty, how would that story have ended? The love of the man and woman in the material world is quite obnoxious when it is studied in its real perspective. Romeo would have become old, toothless, wrinkled and impotent, and Juliet would have become bent over, with gray hair and sagging breasts. more

Animal, in the slaughterhouse, one animal is being killed, and the other animal is eating grass. He's thinking that "I am safe." He does not know that "Next moment I'll be killed." This is animal life. The human life means if somebody is being killed, so he should be immediately warned, taking warning, "Oh, my turn is coming. Let me go away."

So the father, mother, when they came, they saw that their children are in danger: "It is caught by the net of the hunter." So mother immediately jumped over it to save the children, and she was also captured. Then the father saw, "Now if I go to save them, I'll be captured. Let me go away. Let me take sannyasa. That's all." [laughter] That is intelligence. [laughter] You cannot give protection to your family, to your society. To your... No, you cannot give. That is not possible. They must die. They must be captured by the network of maya. You cannot save them. If you want to save them, then make them Krishna conscious. That is the only remedy. Unless you are expert in saving your children by giving them Krishna consciousness, then you are not, you should not become father and mother. That is real contraceptive method, that "I shall... We are married, undoubtedly, husband and wife, but unless we are competent to give protection to my children—no more death—we should not beget children."
