Make the Best of Bad Bargain

Material-Spiritual-Worldby Srila B.B. Tirtha Goswami Maharaja

Sree Sree Guru Gaurangau Jayatah!

It will not be wise to devote our valuable time and energy of this precious human birth for mundane affairs and mundane temporary benefits. This ‘Brahmanda’ is the prison-house of the culprits who are averse to the service of Supreme Eternal Master Sri Krishna. Culprits cannot expect to get peace in this prison-house. If we want eternal benefit we should submit to Sri Krishna unconditionally and serve Him. Saranagati is the best solution of all problems.

Mundane benefits are not actual benefits, as whatever we do in this world is impermanent. Relations in this world are most temporary. Efforts in this world will not produce lasting result. But what we can do, as we are entangled in these temporary mundane affairs. To make the best of bad bargain primary attention should be given for eternal benefit. Interests of the apparent selves should be subservient to the interest of the real self; otherwise ultimately we may feel frustration.

There is no cause for rejoicing and moroseness in any happening of the temporary world. Everything is impermanent here. Our eternal place of stay is in the Transcendental Region – Goloka -Vrindavana. All our efforts to establish ourselves in this impermanent world will be finished, the moment this body will perish.
