Don't be misled by bodily welfare activities

    Posted on January 22, 2014

Maya is very strong. In the name of philanthropy, altruism and communism, people are feeling compassion for suffering humanity throughout the world. Philanthropists and altruists do not realize that it is impossible to improve people's material conditions...

The only benefit we can render to suffering beings is to try to raise them to spiritual consciousness...

If one is at all sympathetic or able to do good to others, he should endeavor to raise people to Krsna consciousness. In this way everyone advances spiritually by the grace of the Lord...

We should be very careful not to be misled by so-called welfare activities conducted in bodily terms.
