If the root cause of passion is not eradicated, how can we conquer Kama? When we become averse to Sri Krishna and want to enjoy Maya, Maya immediately envelops us and we get false ego. As such we are passing through cycles of births since time immemorial and burning in the cycle of births and deaths and threefold suffering. The only way of getting freedom from suffering is unconditional surrender to the lotus feet of Sri Krishna.
– Srila Bhakti Ballabh Tirtha Gosvami Maharaja
