How can we be happy and satisfied? In this age of quarrel and hypocrisy, everyone wants to find peace and happiness. So many problems are here. So, we should try to be united.
If we want to learn anything, if we want to be an engineer or doctor or be an expert in any job, we will have to go to school with teachers. Then we can be expert in anything. If we want to learn who is the creator of this world and if we want to know why one person is born in a wealthy family and another in a poor family, for this transcendental knowledge we will have to go to a person who has transcendental knowledge. Otherwise, we cannot learn all these things.
If you can spend thousands of dollars to go to medical school or to learn the harmonium, only for worldly knowledge, then why not for a teacher of transcendental knowledge. If you are not serving him and going to listen from him, then how can you become expert?
