“In human society the constant struggle for existence also manifests as the ‘ Battle to Succeed’ in life.
In material vision ” Success” means to amass Wealth, Fame, Followers, Influence, Prestige and Power. These qualities spring from the material mode of passion and keep us prisoners of material desire.
The process of Krishna consciousness is meant for elevating one above material bondage to the transcendental platform of Eternal Blissful Knowledge.
Therefore, Krishna conscious devotees have been advised by Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu to “Pull out the Weeds” of Material Desires and Bad Habits from ones life in order to make Unimpeded progress in Krishna consciousness (Real SUCCESS)”HH Jayapataka Swami
