Srila Prabhupada speaks on April 28

PRABHUPADA'S QUOTE OF THE DAY

"We are meant for enjoyment, but we are seeking enjoyment in a false place – in an illusion, like the desert animals that run after water in a mirage and eventually die of thirst. They cannot relieve their thirst with such illusory water. Similarly, we are trying to manufacture many things to satisfy our thirst for enjoyment, but we are being baffled at every turn because material existence is an illusion. Real intelligence means to inquire, "Where is the reality? Where is the eternal substance behind the illusion?" If we can find that out, we can experience real enjoyment."

Los Angeles, April 28, 1973
