Radhanath Swami: Living Superficial Lives Can Never Bring Us Real Fulfillment

 

According to statistics provided by the World Health Organization, incidents of serious depression have increased by 50% in the last 10 years. We have better telephones, better televisions, more efficient motor cars, better highways systems, better airplanes and air traffic control and the computers are getting smaller and more efficient. But despite so much material progress, why have the number of cases of suicides, depression, alcoholism and drug addiction drastically increased in society? This is a simple question that thoughtful people should ask. The answer, according to the Bhagavad-gita, is that living superficial lives that are not in harmony with our real nature can never bring us real fulfillment. The more we strive for happiness through materialistic ways, the more our heart becomes frustrated. – Radhanath Swami
