Although one may neutralize the reactions of sinful life through austerity, charity, vows and other such methods, these pious activities cannot uproot the material desires in one’s heart. However, if one serves the lotus feet of the Personality of Godhead, he is immediately freed from all such contaminations.

– Srimad Bhagavatam 6.2.17


If a person unaware of the effective potency of a certain medicine takes that medicine or is forced to take it, it will act even without his knowledge because its potency does not depend on the patient’s understanding.

– Srimad Bhagavatam 6.2.19

And where have those four beautiful people (Solders of Vishnu) gone who released me from arrest and saved me from being dragged down to the hellish regions?

Therefore you should consider every body a residence or Temple of the Lord. By such vision you will satisfy the Lord. You should not angrily kill these living entities in the forms of trees.
