No One Can Help You

You should know that we are all eternal servants of Kṛṣṇa. Those who are chanting and remembering or not, those who accept or do not accept Kṛṣṇa, all the creepers and trees, all the worms and insects, animals and birds and humans, all living entities are eternal servants of Kṛṣṇa. If you are healthy and wealthy now, and have all the paraphernalia to be happy, still no one can help you. After some time you will be old. Your beauty will be transferred to ugliness. Your hair will be white. You will be so weak that you cannot walk yourself; you will have to take the help of a stick. And at the time of death, what you are now collecting, even a hair, you cannot take. So, remember this, your father, mother, uncle, wealth, reputation, position — none can help you.
