    All of us have some problem or the other in our life. Many a times we would have expereinced that the moment we think that something is solved and take a sigh of relief, we find many more problems queued up in line and waiting to pounce upon us. Mere worrying about the problem would not help us find any solution for the same.

    The "letter of the law" versus the "spirit of the law" is an idiomatic antithesis. When one obeys the letter of the law, but not the spirit, one is obeying the literal interpretation of the words (the "letter") of the law, but not the intent of those who wrote the law.

    Different people take to spirituality for different reasons. In fact people come to 'Krishna Consciousness' for different reasons. For example, someone may come because they feel a sense of security of being in a society. Or somebody may remain in Krishna consciousness because they are afraid of suffering or death. Of course, everybody may not be pure in their motives.

    In olden days, the relationship between living entities in the home and society were based on love, respect, friendship and gratitude, as people were all leading a God-centered life. But nowadays relationships are based on utility value. As a long a person is of some use, he/she will be treated with respect by family, society etc.

In whatever dangerous situation we are in, we don't think about anything else, except, "Taking the shelter of the Lord's lotus feet". All of us know the pastime of Dhruva Maharaj being sent to the forest.
