Fueling the fire of material desire

Posted By A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami On March 1, 2013 @ 4:29 pm In Economic Development,Wonderful KRSNA | No Comments

Material desire is just like a blazing fire. If a fire is continually supplied with drops of fat, the fire will increase more and more and never be extinguished. Therefore the policy of trying to satisfy material desires by catering to one’s material demands will never be successful. In modern civilization, everyone is engaged in economic development, which is another way of constantly dropping fat into the material fire. (purport, Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam, Canto 9, Chapter 6, Text 48 [1])
