    The living entity under the clutches of maya wants to enjoy this material world, but unless you give him directions and remind him, he cannot make progress in pursuing his shadowy objective in life.

    How many of us seek help when we are unable to do find a solution ? We always want to do it ourself and it is the false ego which comes in our way to seek help from an expert. Even among children we can find them fighting telling that I can do it myself - you don't have to teach me

    When our hearts are filled with greed, envy and attachments - there would be no place for Krishna-katha in them. These poisonous thoughts agitate the mind and would not allow us  to focus on scriptures or forms of the Lord. Bhakti should not be performed with some motive for name, fame and wealth.

    Vrttasura very well knew that he would definitely be killed in the battle. But still he cheerfully continued with his duty without giving up. Its indeed a very inspiring quality exhibited by Vrttasura. Many a times when problems come up, I tend to give up - rather than to face it.

    In the struggle for material existence we have forgotten Krishna who is our loving father. As Paramatma He is always alert and knows what we need. However we have not been able to recognize His presence. In the process we fail to ask for His help when we are genuinely in need.

    Maharaj said: Why are you talking of material devastation when your body is going to be first devastated? (Maharaj then gave definition for devastation as total destruction). As soon as you follow irreligion your body is going to be devastated. Do you really want healthy body or not?

    Here he states Arjuna not to worry for something which is not worthy of worrying. In material existence we take so many bodies and without fail in all these bodies, we think we're the controllers and the anxiety follows without fail. And in the Bhagavad Gita there is only one point stressed by the Lord from begining to end.

    The Damodara pastime of the Lord shows how the Supreme Personality Of Godhead is bound by the tassel of pure love of the devotee. On the day of Diwali, the Lord reminds us how he is very easily available to devotees, but not to tapasvis, yogis, jnanis and others who have a bodily concept of life.

    This verse clearly shows us, that anything that is not related to the Lord will only agitate us. Simply put, whenever we are not in relation with the Lord we are put into so called miseries by the mind. The mind wreaks havoc as it is not anchored to its constitutional anchor point, the lotus feet of the Lord.
