1. There is no adjustment

    Better to leave this place as soon as possible. Not to come again. That should be our serious attention. The other day the radio man was asking, “Swamiji, how to adjust?” And “There is no adjustment. You have to go out of the scene. There is no adjustment.” So he was not very happy. If I would have bluffed him, “Oh, you do this, you do that, you do this humanitarian work, you spread[?] education and give foodstuff.” No! There is no adjustment. The only adjustment is quit this place. That is the function of this human form of life. You can get out of this show by Krsna consciousness. Krsna says that this is the abode of miseries and that also temporary. Because you can accept any miserable life. That is the spell of maya. Just like this dog life. If somebody asked me, “Would you like to be a dog? I can make you,” shall I agree? Why not? Because I know that’s miserable life. But the dog is satisfied. By becoming a purchased slave, very much satisfied. He has no independence, always chained and always servant, eternal servant of a particular man. He can do any harmful thing by the order of the master, he’s so faithful. But still, his life is miserable, because he’s dog. But he is satisfied. He thinks that “Oh, it is a very nice life.” This is called covering power of maya, illusion. Anyone in the most miserable condition of life, he’ll think, “Oh, I am very happy.” Ask him, “How are you?” “Oh, very nice. Very nice.” So there is no adjustment. A Krsna conscious person should… He knows that here, only adjustment is to live in Krsna consciousness.
