The unhappy story of life

    Posted on May 26, 2017

This body is temporary, but so long you have got this body, you have to suffer, this way or that way. So this is your real unhappiness, to get this material... Klesada. Klesada means always giving trouble. From the childhood they are crying. He has got some klesa. The mother cannot understand. He's crying.

He cannot express what is his inconvenience, and he's feeling one inconvenience, and the mother is trying to make him happy in other way. He's crying more, more, more, more. Where is happiness? Within the womb there was unhappiness, packed-up. When he comes down there is unhappiness. Then go to school, take education, appear for examination — that is unhappiness. Then grow up, then engage in some earning money — that is unhappiness. Then maintain your children, and that is unhappiness. Where is happiness, rascals? Rascal. Both are suffering.

This is simply anarthas, unnecessary creating unhappiness. Unnecessary.

Srila Prabhupada — July 5, 1977, Vrndavana
