1. Kali-yuga itself is faulty

    This age, Kali-yuga, is full of faulty things. Kaler dosa-nidhe [SB 12.3.51] It is an ocean of faulty things. It is very, very difficult. Sarvange gha upaidha mala[?]. A man is suffering from itches, or what is called, sores, all over the body. So where he shall give ointment? He should be dipped in the ointment. This is the position. Similarly, how much you will find out, "This is faulty, this is faulty, this is faulty…" The life in the Kali-yuga itself is faulty. Everything is faulty. So… But still, Krsna is so kind, He has given an opportunity that by chanting His holy name one can become free from this faulty position. Kirtanad eva krsnasya mukta-sanga param vrajet. It is possible.
