  Problems of Life: Birth, Death, Disease, Old Age



Energy Problems will be Solved As Soon As We are Localized
[Oil prices are close to US$58 per barrel, having fallen from their all-time high of more than US$70 per barrel. When the oil companies reported highest profits in history this year (ExxonMobil alone reported $9.9 billion in profits last quarter), public outrage prompted the US Senate to... More

Don't Prolong Your Time Here

We are trying to become happy in a temporary place that is full of miseries. That is not possible. No one can remain here; as we come here to get treated for our material desires, then we must die. More

Pain Management Therapy

Dr. Murphy, then asked the group what they thought of the experience. A couple of very nice people had very favorable responses to the idea of chanting. One woman remarked that it immediately made her feel spiritually connected to the Divine energy of God. She recalled that the most peace and tranquility she had ever experienced was when she was singing Gregorian Chants in her church many years ago, and that this chanting of the Hare Krishna Mantra was reconnecting her to that blissful feeling. Guy said that he totally embraced the idea, and said that it "Removed me far away from the bodily pain I've been suffering from." More

Mandatory Evacuation

While we are hearing about the people in New Orleans being evacuated from their homes and at the same time in California the victims of wildfire being evacuated from their homes without more than a moment's notice, we wonder when it will be our turn for Mandatory Evacuation. More

No Relief for Earthquake Victims

Still people in general insist that life is joyful and we should be positive and not be negative?? I don't get that. Am I missing something?? Krishna says, dukhalayam asasvatam: "This world is full of miseries, and it is temporary." More

Picture Puzzles & Government Cover-ups

If I know real diamonds and rubies, I know when I see the imitation diamonds and rubies. Unless one knows the goal, everything in life remains a puzzle. Just like a child's puzzle… unless the complete picture is known, it is impossible to put the pieces of the puzzle together, and if a wrong picture is supplied, it becomes even more puzzling and impossible to put the puzzle together properly. More

Description of the Age of Quarrel

A person's spiritual position will be ascertained merely according to external symbols, and on the same basis people will change from one spiritual order to the next. A person's propriety will be seriously questioned if he does not earn a good living. And one who is very clever at juggling words will be considered a learned scholar. A person will be judged unholy if he does not have money, and hypocrisy will be accepted as virtue. Marriage will be arranged simply by verbal agreement, and a person will think he is fit to appear in public if he has merely taken a bath. A sacred place will be taken to consist of no more than a reservoir of water located at a distance, and beauty will be thought to depend on one's hairstyle. Filling the belly will become the goal of life, and one who is audacious will be accepted as truthful. He who can maintain a family will be regarded as an expert man, and the principles of religion will be observed only for the sake of reputation." More

It's All Vanity

Death is a most certain thing and yet there is no program anywhere in human society to prepare a person to die. On the contrary, all the programs of the schools and universities, all the businesses, politics, economics and so on, are all preparing us to enjoy, to live and be happy--although no one will live and no one will be happy. This is ignorance. It is the greatest ignorance to waste one's valuable time, energy and intelligence in pursuing something which has no future. More

Birth Control and Vitamins

The whole spectrum of material activity aims only at counteracting these four problems. We do not want birth. Therefore, human beings have created so many programs for birth control, such as abortion or contraception. We do not want old age. Therefore the health food business is flourishing. They are promising, "Eat this grass, eat these sprouts, take these vitamins, and you will remain young, healthy and beautiful." But of course no amount of vitamins or sprouts can keep us young. So it is just another business. We are struggling to remain young, but we are becoming old, and old age brings disease. In old age we cannot see, hear, digest or even sleep. Old age is a warning that one has to die. More
