The material world: no assurance, no guarantee - H.H.Radhanath Swami

Gajendra, he, was a devotee but some how or other he made some mistakes and became an elephant. And he was enjoying with his family very nice life, he had so many nice elephant children and elephant wife and they were all just having a wonderful holiday together and then the crocodile bit his foot. This is material life, at any time crocodile bite your feet; we all have been bitten so many times by the crocodile of material adversity and this crocodile has a very strong sharp teeth and once they bite; you cannot get out. In fact everyone is within this crocodile, in this world at any moment however nice things are we have seen, your success, you are victorious everything is very good and then someone dies or all of a sudden you loose everything or some crazy person starts saying bad things and then your life again is in chaos. There is no security in this world; even the greatest persons are assassinated; they are over thrown at any minute. That is the material world no assurance, no guarantee.- H.H.Radhanath Swami
