  • It's true but contionuous reading Sri-Bhagvatam and listening lectures of great acharyas of Iskcon one can feel detached from material world. HAREKRISHNA!!!!!
  • Hare Krishna, It is a very simple truth of Bhautik Jagat. But it takes o many lives for a human being to realise and digest the truth. And that too comes only with the "Kripa" of Lord Krsna.
