nayam loko’sty ayajnasya
(Bhagavad Gita, Text 31, Ch 4, Transcendental Knowledge)
Meaning: O best of the Kuru dynasty, without sacrifice one can never live happily on this planet or in this life: what then of the next?
***Existence in the material world is due to the multiple reactions to our sinful lives.Ignorance is the cause of sinful life, and sinful life is the cause of one’s dragging on in material existence.The human form of life is the only loophole by which one may get out of this entanglement.Highest kind of happiness that a man can achieve is to be promoted to the spiritual planets by practice of divine consciousness. A life of divine consciousness is therefore the solution to all the problems of material existence.
