We spend great amounts of money on doctors, food, medicine and going here and there, but we should understand that these things can never save us in the end. Everyone is under the grip of time and his own karma. We are all helpless before our own karma. If you are very careful to avoid offenses to the lotus feet of Hari, guru, and Vaiṣṇavas, you will attain kṛṣṇa-bhakti very quickly.
