If we could shrink the earth’s population to a village of precisely 100 people, with all the existing human ratios remaining the same, it would look something like the following.

There would be:


52 females and 48 males

57 Asians; 21 Europeans; 8 Africans; 14 people from the western Hemisphere (North and South America)

70 non-Whites, 30 Whites

6 people possessing 59% of the entire world’s wealth

89 heterosexuals; 11 homosexuals

70 non-Christians; 30 Christians

80 people living in substandard housing

70 people unable to read

50 people suffering from malnutrition

1 person near death; 1 person near birth

1 would have a college education

1 would own a computer.


If you woke up this morning healthier instead of more ill, you are luckier than the 1 million people who will die in the next week.


If you have never experienced a war, the loneliness of imprisonment, the pain of torture or hunger, then you are luckier than the 500 million people experiencing those things at the moment.


If you have food in your refrigerator, clothes, a roof over your head and a bed to sleep in, then you are richer than 75% of the world’s population.


If you have bank account, money in your pocket or small change in a box, you belong to the 8% of wealthy people in the world.


If you chant Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare every day then you are much luckier than all the above.


It is estimated that 30 out of those hundred have heard about Krishna.

30 know about Krsna? That's enouraging.Pre Prabhupada era is was probably like 0.20%, all in India.
