Dear Vaishnavas,
Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada and Gurudev.

As I was going through some of Prabhupada conversations, I found these powerful words of Srila Prabhupada which he told in another place in a nutshell -  "Material world is like toilet, every intelligent person makes his business as short as possible in toilet".

Morning Walk at Stow Lake, March 27, 1968, San Francisco:-

Prabhupada: They kill the grandfather and have a feast, the cannibals. Yes. That is a great sport, that the grandsons will kill the grandfather and have a feast on his body by toasting.(?) Yes. The same idea is being preached by the communists. They want that all old man of the society, they should be killed. That is one of the theories put forward by the communists. Because they are not producing anything. So just imagine, these things will come gradually. So better to leave this place as soon as possible. Not to come again. That should be our serious attention. The other day the radio man was asking, "Swamiji, how to adjust?" "And there is no adjustment. You have to go out of the scene. There is no adjustment." So he was not very happy. If I would have bluffed him, "Oh, you do this, you do that, you do this humanitarian work, you spread(?) education and give foodstuff." No! There is no adjustment. The only adjustment is quit this place. That is the function of this human form of life. You can get out of this show by Krsna consciousness. Krsna says that this is the abode of miseries and that also temporary. Because you can accept any miserable life. That is the spell of maya. Just like this dog life. If somebody asked me, "Would you like to be a dog? I can make you," shall I agree? Why not? Because I know that's miserable life. But the dog is satisfied. By becoming a purchased slave, very much satisfied. He has no independence, always chained and always servant, eternal servant of a particular man. He can do any harmful thing by the order of the master, he's so faithful. But still, his life is miserable because he's dog. But he is satisfied. He thinks that "Oh, it is a very nice life." This is called covering power of maya, illusion. Anyone in the most miserable condition of life he'll think, "Oh, I am very happy." Ask him, "How are you?" "Oh, very nice. Very nice." So there is no adjustment. He knows that here only adjustment is to live in Krsna consciousness. 

Let us try our best in taking only KC adjustment in life, 

Your humbe servant,
