Don't Be Carried Away by Sense Gratification
uploaded from Sri Vrindavana Dhama, India


Overindulgence in material sense gratification is our greatest enemy because it pulls away from our realm identities as eternal spiritual beings into the hellish illusory consciousness of dreaming that we are these bodies. As long as we remain  misidentified with a rotting bag of stool, blood, flesh, bones, mucus, and urine there is no way that we can experience the transcendental bliss of our eternal existence.  Therefore those who are genuinely wise only indulge in sense gratification insofar as is necessary to keep their bodies strong and fit for nicely serving Lord Sri Krishna 24 hours a day.

Overindulgence in Sense Gratification: the Royal Road to Hell

Answers by Citing the Vedic Version:

Questions: How Can Everything Happen for Good?

Please do accept my humble obeisances.

I would like to clear this doubt.

Many people say that everything happens for good. They say that whatever happened in the past was for good, whatever is happening now is for good and whatever is going to happen in the future is also for good. How can this be true when there are so many bad things happening to people all around the world almost every day.

Thank you.

Hare Krishna.



Answer: Everything for Bringing Us Back to Krishna

It is a fact that everything that happens is for good because everything that happens to us is ultimately for the purpose of bringing us back to Krishna or God. Even when so-called bad things happens to us it is good because we in this way we are burning off and getting free from the reactions to our previous sinful activities. The trick is to stop committing any further sinful activities and to surrender fully to the Supreme Personality of Godhead.  In this way we become permanently released from the wheel of karma, and we enter into Lord Krishna's eternal realm of unlimited knowledge and bliss.
