    In the ordinary parlance, we all know that ‘self-sufficiency’ and ‘dependency’ are opposite terms. A person who is ‘self-sufficient’ does not depend upon any body and if a person is ‘dependent’, it means he is not self-sufficient.

    Very often in our life we tend to share our material problems (problems which can be our work related or family related problems) with our working colleagues or our family members thinking that it will help to relieve our heavy heart. How greatly mistaken this soul is!

    In the present civilization we find that the majority of the population are completely fatigued in their endeavour to improve the so called standard of life and are full of restlessness. Peace and refreshment are very rare to find and Srimad Bhagavatam in the verse 4.26.11, describes this situation and Srila Prabhupada gives a brilliant purport to this verse.

    Sometimes we see people committing so many sinful activities without even bothering about the after effects of the same. Such people might even florish nicely for sometime. We also observe certain people who are leading a saatvic life, but still facing so many problems.

    Many a times, we find people asking us why we should perform devotional service when we are young. Forget others asking us, sometimes out of our lazy nature, we prefer to procrastinate our duties, scriptural reading etc, thinking that we will do when we are free.

    There is a lot of difference between wants and needs. But deluded by illusion, we consider whatever we want as our needs.
