Who are the Terrorists?

Those who are in the bodily conception of life are terrorists. Those who keep us from making progress to freedom are terrorists. Those who keep us in bondage of the cycle of birth and death are terrorists. There is no fear more terrifying than birth, old age, disease and death. The government leaders, the educators, the scientists and pseudo-religionists who perpetuate by conventional habit the bodily concept—all of them are terrorists. They are waging a war for and of sense gratification. Everyone is planning on increasing their sense gratification, up to the point of suicide bombing. How can you stop them? How can you win?

Nunam pramattah kurute vikarma. Having made sense gratification the ultimate goal of life, we have now come to the ultimate result: war of nations by force and suicide to enjoy sense gratification. Their policy is if we cannot have sense gratification, then we will kill ourselves in our determination to destroy your sense gratification. If we cannot have sense gratification, then no one should have sense gratification. Suicide. War by suicide. The ultimate conclusion to the competition for indulging in sense gratification. Those who have made sense gratification the aim of life become MAD. “Lust, anger, greed, lamentation, illusion, and madness.” It has all come to the boiling point. There is no return. We must now be enveloped in the fever and fire of madness resulting from indulging in sense gratification.
