“I want to tell something, the message and teachings of Gurudeva and Guru paramapara and Bhaktivedanta Swami Maharaja; That you should know very strongly, that this world is not a happy place. Do you all accept this? Who accepts that this world is not bad, that it is very good and full of joy, and very beautiful; and that we should enjoy this world, this is a bogus idea, bogus idea. Only mad men can speak like this. That world is very enjoyable, very beautiful, handsome, and we should enjoy this world. Only madmen can tell such things. Those who are thinking, “Oh, I am the monarch of the whole world, I am king or emperor, all should obey me”, like this. And where is really this person? He is in the drain, in the gutters and dogs are bathing him in hot water (with their urine ), and he is thinking, “O, I am bathing from a very hot stream coming from the mountain.” They are totally mad. 99% of people are thinking like this. They are in the jail of maya (material delusion).
Srila Bhaktivedanta Narayana Gosvami Maharaja
