“Even the animals they learn not to bite the hand who feeds them. Even you can train wild tigers, lions and other animals to respect the person who feeds them, as long as the person does not treat them badly. It’s only the human being even after all good instruction, still – it’s said that an envious man is worse than animal because you can hardly change him. So this enviousness is a very dangerous thing. It’s a very dangerous thing especially if we commit offences to the holy name and the devotees who are preaching the holy name.”
