Q: We hear Srila Guru Maharaj says that the environment is not the problem - that we, ourselves, are the problem and not to quarrel with the environment. But, say, when you are in a hot atmosphere and you are wearing many layers - do you not take off some layers, move to a cooler spot or making adjustment to that environment? Could you speak about that according to the perspective of our spiritual life?
Karma is like seasonal changes. - Tolerance. - The root of the matter is not suffering. - Dressed in karma. - Realtime choices. - Make inner adjustment. - The friendly hand of Krishna in the background of the hardships. - Test that reveals the flaws. - Is God friendly to me? - Our mailing address is the world of mortality. - Life is a brief candle. - Liberation in the crematorium. - The value of philosophy comes out in dealing with death. - The expiration date of the Universe. - Only conventional aspirations? - We are the only species who ask “Why?” - The real fight is the fight against mortality. - A diamond robot: an attempt to live forever. - Panda’s goal of life. - Auden: “We are composed of eros and dust.” - Indefinite confinement. - What is relevant to us - that we need to know. - Our happiness lies in glorifying Hari, Guru and Vaishnava. - Srivas Thakur’s affection purchased Mahaprabhu. - Jajavar Maharaja’s sannyasa: which world to be afraid of. - Compulsion to dive deep into reality. - Not immortality, but the service connection.
