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. This is simply anarthas, unnecessary creating unhappiness. Unnecessary. Therefore Krsna comes, and He is giving advice, “Do like this. You’ll be happy in this life and next.
