No material fix…

Some people think that this world is a gift from Krsna to us, “Krsna was so kind that he made this material world for us so that we can have a good time!” That thought is going on and in the middle of it, some disaster happens and then suddenly it is not such a nice world anymore, “How is this possible?…

They did not have any training and they did not take any classes.

Should one go on pilgrimage or should one stay and do service in one’s area? Will that be sufficient?
