Question: Can someone who is in heaven, svarga, commit some bad karma, bad activities and fall down to some hellish planet?

Anyone who is in heaven has to come down. Heaven is temporary.

Here [at the devotees' house] it is like heaven, but if somebody goes to some bad house, that is hell. Also, you have now come here to this house, but you will have to go back to your home.

Everybody has to go—even all thirty-three million of demigods—Kali, Durga, Laksmi, Ganesh... They are staying there now, but it is temporary and one day they have to come back from heaven.

You can say that Laksmi Devi is the wealth minister, Saraswati Devi is the education minister, Durga, Kali are the power minister—just as here in Caracas there is a prime-minister, an education minister, but any time they can go to some other place.

So, everybody has to go and change their position. It is said in the scriptures also that somebody who has a human body can become Kali, Durga, Laksmi Devi or some other demigod.

When will Nityananda Prabhu give His mercy to me? When will my material desires be removed from my heart?
