1. You are suffering because you are disobeying

    In the Vedic literature we find, eko bahunam vidadhati kaman. That Supreme Lord is supplying everyone food. Why do you think of human society? What is the human society? Out of 8,400,000 forms of life there are only 400,000 и forms of human life. And 8,000,000 forms they are lower animals, birds, beasts, aquatics. Who is supplying their foodstuff? Everyone is sumptuously fed by the grace of God. Why not you?

    You are suffering because you are disobeying, therefore you are suffering. That you should know, only the suffering population theory, this theory, that theory, only in the human society because they are regularly defying the existence of God — science, science, science. Now there are so many suffering people. Why your science cannot provide them food? So this is a wrong theory. You have to satisfy the supreme supplier. Then you’ll get sufficient production and you’ll be happy.
