“In the world today, many countries who recently fought one another are now allied, due to changing political aims. And in a few more years, the situation will change again.
This is so because material relationships are based on temporary sense gratification, either individual or collective. Since such relationships are temporary, they have no permanent value.
However, the pure relations between the individual soul and the Supreme Soul are eternal and COMPLETELY SATISFYING. This complete satisfaction cannot be found within this material world; here we find only illusory bodily relationships.
So here Srila Prabhupada warns us not to be mislead into pursuing lusty desires. If we become absorbed in material desires, we forget Krishna, our real spiritual protector, and by chasing after sense gratification, we become victims of Maya, who binds us to the cycle of birth and death.HH Jayapataka Swami
