(Kadamba Kanana Swami, 27 April 2014, Radhadesh, Belgium, Caitanya Caritamrta Madhya Lila 22.142)

old carI do not have the fix for material problems – I don’t. I also have material problems – many! So, I cannot fix anyone’s material problems permanently.

Material life is a broken car. It is an old, old, broken car. Many screws keep on falling out. As a car mechanic, I could try to put some new screws in but there are other screws that are falling out at the same time. So, it is going to be a broken car even if you fix it. But we keep it on the road and we reach our destination – that is the good part.

So, we can be happy. We should not become depressed that this is the age of kali. The mercy is here in the age of kali, so if we become depressed, we should meditate on the mercy of Caitanya Mahaprabhu. That is the answer to the depression that we sometimes feel in the age of kali.
