Bhaktivinoda Thakura says that you are an ass

    Posted on June 24, 2017

(24 Jun 2017 is Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura's Disappearance Anniversary)

Bhaktivinoda Thakura says, anitya samsare moha janamiya jiva ke karaye gadha. The maya's glaring attraction may be increased, but it will be affective to keep me under her influence and make me an ass. Ass does not know; his interest is simply for grass. He is loaded with tons of cloth of the washer man. Similarly, if we do not get the real knowledge of life, we remain like an ass, and our life is spoilt. This is Bhaktivinoda Thakura saying, jiva ke karaye gadha. People will think that "We are advancing, and this man is calling we are becoming ass?" Yes, you are ass, because you do not know your real interest of life. You are an ass. You may have a very nice Rolls-Royce car, but you are nothing but an ass because you do not know your interest of life.

Srila Prabhupada — May 25, 1975, Honolulu
