HH KKS: Lord Krishna is the only enjoyer of all sacrifices. Everything simply must be performed for the pleasure of Krishna…and if we are trying to direct our energy towards any other deity and we try to please that deity then the result will be temporary or if we are trying to simply direct our sacrafices for our own pleasure or to some person in this world…then also the results will be temporary and will lead to suffering. In this material world everything is described as …(sanskrit)…a temporary place where everything ultimately leads to misery. Some things may give us suffering immediately and others things will give us enjoyment but when we lose that temporary enjoyment then the end result will still be suffering. Thus the wise say that in relation to the material energy there is no true happinness….it doesn’t exist.
