French devotee (1): Śrīla Prabhupāda, is there some worship of God in the animal kingdom?
Prabhupāda: No. (aside:) Hare Kṛṣṇa.
Harikeśa: Hut hut hut hut!
Prabhupāda: “Hut” will not do.
Brahmānanda: Stick will do.
Prabhupāda: At least show. [break] Trees and other lower animals, they are abiding by the order of Kṛṣṇa. That is worship.
Brahmānanda: But is it voluntary or involuntary?
Prabhupāda: By force. By force now this tree is standing. He has to stand up here. It cannot move an inch.
Brahmānanda: Is that considered worship?
Prabhupāda: Yes, it is.
Akṣayānanda: Indirect worship.
Prabhupāda: …indirect worship, abiding. Just like you don’t worship the government, revolt. But when you are put into jail you have to worship the government.
Akṣayānanda: We don’t worship, yet we don’t break the law.
Prabhupāda: You cannot break the law. Outside you break law. That you can do. But when you are put into jail, then you cannot. And jail means unless the government finds that you are now obedient to the government laws... (dog growling and barking)

Prabhupada:Yes. We are brainwashing frombad to good. That is our
business. We are washing the brain from all rascaldom. That is our
business. You are… Your brain is filled up with all rubbish things:
meat-eating and illicit sex, gambling. So we are washing them.
Ceto-darpana-marjanam. Srnvatam sva-kathah krsnah
punya-sravana-kirtanah, hrdy antah-stho abhadrani. Abhadrani washing.
Abhadrani means bad things. The bad things should be washed off. Don’t
you cleanse your home? Don’t you cleanse your room? Is not that
brainwashing? So if you wash your room very cleansed, who blames you?
But you are so rascal that “Why you are washing this garbage?” you are
protesting. You are such an intelligent man.
We are washing the
garbage;you are protesting, “Why you are washing the garbage?” This
is your intelligence. But intelligent men wash the garbage. That is
the law of nature, cleanse. That we are doing.
According to Vedic
civilization, you are actually untouchable. Now we have come to touch
you;therefore wash you must first. You are untouchable.In Indian
civilization, dog is untouchable, and that is your best friend.So you
are not touchable. Therefore we have to wash you.And unless your
brain is washed, you cannot understand Krsna. So it is necessary. Is
that all right? Dog is your best friend.
In India dog is untouchable.
So “Man is known by his company.”If your best friend is dog, then
what you are? We can understand your position because you sleep with
dog, you eat with dog, your best friend is dog, so what you are? You
must be washed. It is a fact. Every woman, every man, has some dog.
Jagadisa: Dog or cat.
Prabhupada: Mostly dog. So “Man is known by his company.” Your
constant company is dog, so what you are? These are the way. Actually,
according to Vedic…
Why they do not allow Europeans in the
Jagannatha temple? Because they are untouchable. According to Vedic
civilization, Europeans are untouchable. Muslims and…, untouchable.
Not only foreigners, even in their own country,those who are not very
cleansed, they are untouchable. Another’s eatable things, they’re
untouchable. Just like hog. If you give him halava, he will not take
it. He will eat stool. Therefore hog is so abominable….
