    "Every man should act like this: when he meets a person more qualified than himself, he should be very pleased; when he meets someone less qualified than himself, he should be compassionate toward him; and when he meets someone equal to himself, he should make friendship with him. In this way one is never affected by the threefold miseries of this material world."

    When a brahmana is satisfied with whatever comes his way and does not fall away from his constitutional position or prescribed religious principles, those very religious principles become his desire cow, fulfilling all his desires. An unsatisfied brahmana wanders restlessly from one planet to another, even if he becomes King of heaven. But a satisfied brahmana, though he may possess nothing, rests peacefully, all his limbs free of distress.

    "Everyone desires to be the greatest personality in this material world. Dvesha means "envy." When one becomes envious of Krishna, or the Supreme Personality of Godhead, one thinks, "Why should Krishna be the all and all? I'm as good as Krishna." These two items, desire to be the Lord and envy of the Lord, are the beginning cause of material bondage."
