“Does not consider this world as false – that which is created by the Supreme Personality of Godhead cannot be false, but using it for enjoyment is!”
Everything is meant to be enjoyed by the Supreme Personality of Godhead! As confirmed in the Bhagavad Gita (5.29):
The Supreme Personality of Godhead is the proprietor and an enjoyer, and that everything should be dovetailed for his service, regardless of ones circumstances – favourable or unfavourable, one should use everything to serve the Supreme Lord. That is the perfect way to use one’s intelligence!
