We were in the country driving from Durban, South Africa, and there were some big, long, white buildings some distance from the highway.  Srila Prabhupada asked, “What are those buildings?”  I responded, “They are chicken coops that belong to a large chicken farm. They use them as slaughterhouses.”  Srila Prabhupada said, “Why do they buy chicken?  Let them make a chicken.  Let them take some egg, put some liquid on it, incubate it, and hatch a chicken.  But those rascals can’t because they don’t understand that life is not the egg but the spirit soul.”  He carried on in an animated way talking about that.”
