(Kadamba Kanana Swami, August 2010, Croatia, Lecture) Question: Can you define lust? If we serve our own senses, then it is called lust but if we serve the senses of Krsna, then it is called … more
Sometimes it is thought that this world is a gift of Krishna to us:
“Krishna was so kind that He made this material world for us so that we have a good time here!”
That’s the idea and therefore they think that religion is to say:
“Thank you Krishna for giving us this nice world, where we can have a great time! “
And that’s going on and in the middle of it some disaster happens, either on a large scale or a private scale! Then suddenly it’s not such a nice world anymore :
“How is this possible, how can this happen?” Then the world is not so nice.
A sober person who is not so passionate can see things as they are.
