Śrīla Gurudeva: In this world is there anything which is true? Anyone can tell that God is true but we have no conception of God. They don’t see God. But one thing is true. Death is true. You know that death is true. Can you say death is true or false?
Śrīla Gurudeva: How do you know that death is true?
Devotee: We see that everyone is dying.
Śrīla Gurudeva: You see that everyone is dying. Old persons are dying and new ones are coming. So, death is true. Whether he may be a very rich person, he may be the king of Indonesia, is he happy? There was a very beautiful lady in this world. Her name was princess Diana. They had so much power yet they were not satisfied. So, in this world also this is one truth that anyone is not happy. All are suffering from something. You should realize this. Death is true and it is true that someday we will have to die and anyone of this world is not pure happy. They are suffering so much.
