Solving Life's Problems
tatha dehantara-praptih, but one who has understood Krsna perfectly--it is not possible to understand Him, but as far as our knowledge is concerned--if we understand Krsna, then immediate result is that we are freed from the bondage of janma-mrtyu-jara-vyadhi. So that is the real problem. We are solving problems, this problem, that problem, that... They are not problems. That is natural in this material world. Just like this fly is
disturbing. This is not a problem because the fly is made for that
purpose. How... You cannot stop him. You can protect yourself. It is not possible to stop him. This is not problem, how to drive away the fly. The real problem, Krsna says, janma mrtyu-jara vyadhi- duhkha dosanudarsanam, that you are in the
cycle of birth, death... Tatha dehantara praptih. You get another life and you suffer. Again ... is your problem. So that problem, Krsna says, that "You can solve it. Simply try to understand Me."
Janma karma me divyam yo janati tattvatah, tyaktva deham. That is our business. But we are being deviated from the real business, and we are
being engaged in so-called this ism, that ism, that ism. This is spoiling the whole thing.
So, once again Srila Prabhupda has brilliantly explained life in the material world by using a single fly
to typify why none of us should endeavor any more than doing the basics of keeping body and soul together-for that "extra"endeavor is exactly like to trying to solve the eternal "fly" problems to us all. They can never be solved as long as we exist within a material body, within this material world. It is impossible to stop old age, birth, disease and death.What to speak of the extra threefold miseries. Only solution is to get out of it altogether by going to the spiritual world with a spiritual body where none of these problems exist.
Jaya Srila Prabhupada-thank you for explaining all lifes problems with one fly example !!
