Today I noticed how prasadam was tasty to the tongue, (happiness), while shortly thereafter, while working outside, felt lots of ants biting my foot skin! Dozens! And quite painful. This is material life. There is (happiness), pleasan nerve ending tinglings, and pain, due to unpleasant skin sensations. All skin sensations of the external bag of skin and bones, having not much to do with my eternal soul.
We deserve better happiness. Not flowers mixed with thorns. Happiness beyond body and mind is our birthright. It is who we really are. Bhagavad-gita, spoken by the demanding Lord Sri Krishna encourages us to enjoy eternal spiritual joy, from within the depths of our souls, and leave aside the bag of bones we sometimes try to find happiness from.
No more death, No more birth, No more coming back to earth! That is the battle cry of Bhagavad-gita, that is the very kind encouragement of Lord Krishna…..Come back to Godhead at the end of this life, leave aside morbid attachments.
yad gatvā na nivartante tad dhāma paramaṁ mama
