So many people have graduated out of universities and colleges and we find almost hundreds of universities even in smaller cities. But have these really improved the quality of human life ?

    We all have the experience that out of the four problems of material existence, namely food problem, shelter problem, fear problem and mating problem, thefear problem is the most prominent. We are always fearful due to the ignorance of the next problem.

    People are often puzzled why a soul who is situated in the spiritual world would trade his position of eternity, knowledge and bliss for temporality, ignorance and misery in this world of birth and death. The answer is quite simple. Every living being has the independence to act freely as he chooses.

    "Devotees when they start criticizing each other they start losing interest in mangala arati, then they start losing interest in Bhagavatam then they start losing interest in chanting and one day they just go out of the door. Finish. This is how our thinking and has a very bad effect. Bad thinking will give a very bad face like Chimpanzee. Nobody likes to have a face of chimpanzee. Enough of chimpanzee face, now we should have a nice innocent face.

    "Persons who are actually intelligent and philosophically inclined should endeavor only for that purposeful end which is not obtainable even by wandering from the topmost planet [Brahmaloka] down to the lowest planet [Patala]. As far as happiness derived from sense enjoyment is concerned, it can be obtained automatically in course of time, just as in course of time we obtain miseries even though we do not desire them."

    Creation of energy of the Lord is also partially eternal, knowledge and beauty. The captivated conditioned souls under the influence of the external energy, maya, are therefore entrapped in the network of the material nature.
