“ Sometimes the people, they’re hankering to get famous. This is a very big thing in the world. Football players, cricket players, movie stars. Of course when you get very high fame, there is also a burden.
Just like George Harrison, because he is famous, someone tried to kill him. If you are very famous people will like to kill you, because then they become famous for killing a famous person. Now, to get that… your name put on the news cast as the killer of a big person…many crazies are willing to do anything. So it is very dangerous to be famous nowadays.
George Harrison agreed to come to Mayapur, so he said, “Don’t tell anybody that I’m coming”. Then when he was there he was saying that, big harassment, all the time people tell where they are. So when he went to Bangkok, he had the secretary sign the hotel and everything. If he signs then they’ll recognize the name. But somebody spotted him and then all of a sudden at his door there were like ten charities asking please do a benefit for an orphanage, please do this, do that. So, those are innocent things but then you don’t get any peace. Queen of England or any important person. Sometimes, people they just crawl into the house just to get famous.
So being famous in Kali Yuga goes both ways.”
